New dissolvable Metal support enables 3D printing of complex metallic Structures

Researchers have fabricated dissolvable carbon steel structures using 3D printing technology that can provide temporary support for components of larger stainless steel structures made by additive manufacturing. The first-of-its-kind soluble metal support is subsequently removed via electrochemical etching in nitric acid with bubbling oxygen, as described in an article in 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing. The article “Dissolvable Metal Supports for 3D Direct Metal Printing ” demonstrates an application of this novel approach, in … Continue reading

TriAlpha Energy, a Company Pursuing the Ideal Power Source

A startup in California has raised $500 million to chase the elusive dream of fusion power. Is this crazy, or is the company on to something? by Richard Martin May 20, 2016 No energy technology is more tantalizing than fusion, but no energy technology has proved more disappointing. So how has a fusion company in Southern California raised nearly half a billion dollars from the likes of Goldman Sachs and Paul Allen? Does it … Continue reading

‘Enough power for Mars lander’: NASA tests first 3D Printed Space engine

A fully 3D-printed rocket engine is almost complete: 75 percent of all the necessary parts have already been manufactured, put together and successfully tested by NASA. The 3D-printed engine parts, all combined in a real space propulsion system, generated 20,000 pounds of thrust when they were test-fired with cryogenic liquid hydrogen and oxygen by a team from NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Centre in Huntsville, Alabama. “We manufactured and then tested about 75 percent of … Continue reading

The 3DPrinted ElectricCar that can charge itself off a SolarPowered house

A fully-drivable 3D printed car is also helping do its bit for the environment, thanks to a U.S. government initiative. The eco-friendly vehicle was built using newly-developed large-scale printing technology, and was designed to work together with an equally environmentally-friendly house. Both the car and the house were created as part of an initiative by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, in Tennessee. Experts at the laboratory wanted to develop a … Continue reading
