One more product of 3D printing: supply chain disruption

History could repeat itself as 3D printing is poised to disrupt the supply chain much like email changed the way people communicate. In the 1990s, people scoffed that email would replace sending letters through the U.S. Postal Service. Today, billions of emails travel...

UC Berkeley, Livermore Lab researchers create updated 3D printer model

A report released by researchers from UC Berkeley and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the journal Science on Thursday outlined the design of a new 3D printer that allows objects to be printed more quickly than previous printers, with smoother surfaces and no...

Forget Everything You Know About 3D Printing—the “Replicator” Is Here

A new 3D printing technique can replicate complex structures—such as Rodin’s famous sculpture, “The Thinker,” seen here—using projections of light into a special resin. Credit: Getty Images They nicknamed it ‘the replicator’—in homage to the machines in the Star Trek...

Engineers create 3D printed smart objects with ’embodied logic’
