NASA is getting into the textile business thanks to a team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The team has unveiled prototype swatches of a new metallic “space fabric” created using 3D printing that incorporates advanced functions that would be beneficial for use in space.

Game changing 3D printers for low cost metal parts
Technology developed at MIT could enable faster, cheaper, more adaptable building construction.
The 3D-printing of glass objects has been achieved before – we’ve seen it done by extruding molten glass, and even via a modern take on an ancient Egyptian technique. A new process, however, is claimed to produce complex glass items of a higher quality than has ever previously been possible.
Making 3-D printing as simple as printing on paper
Startup’s cloud-based system allows for project queuing by multiple users and automated part removal.
Not satisfied with the specs of off-the-shelf brushless DC motors? Looking to up the difficulty level on your next quadcopter build? Or perhaps you just define “DIY” as rigorously as poâ¦
A new construction principle has let researchers create load-bearing 4D-printed objects. They could be useful for medical devices like stents or aerospace.
Transparent plastic is nothing new. However, 3D prints are usually opaque or–at best–translucent. [Thomas Sanladerer] wanted to print something really transparent. He noticed that Colorâ¦
This could lead to a small 3D printer used by soldiers to quickly make anything needed in the field.
Mice with 3D-printed ovaries ovulated and then gave birth to healthy babies. The goal of the research is to restore women’s fertility after cancer.
