Sheikhs from the Middle East like to show off their passion for new technologies. This time in Dubai, the first printed in 3d office.
The German company Festo has developed a technology that uses a robot to create interconnected webs of glass fiber. The technology, called 3D Cocooner inspired is a technique by which insects create their cocoons. The architecture is mainly associated with people. But above all animals they created impressive structures. Bees, wasps and termites build houses layer by layer. Spiders and caterpillars build houses imposing structure using fiber.
It is not easy to print something in the absence of gravity. Two years ago, the Americans were able to create this type of printer, but none of this feat was not repeated. Until now, when Chinese scientists announced that tested their own project of such a printer.
Let’s discuss a 3D printing technologies using metal. There are several such technologies, but they all are basically the same. Technologies DMLS, SLM and Laser Cusing is essentially a reserved trade names are the same technology selective sintering and melting metal powders using a laser, applied layer by layer, until the finished full-strength parts.
3D printers are becoming increasingly common in medicine, serving for the production of prostheses bones or bodies of models to facilitate the conduct of operations. Soon, however, such devices will be used during the treatment and one of the first models of such equipment is BioPen.
