Monash University successfully developed color 3D human anatomy model
Monash University has developed a relatively complete set of color 3D models of human anatomy. It is by the Director of the school's human anatomy PaulMcMenamin and his team gradually developed during the past 2 years. Compared with other similar models, this model has a lot of unique features, such as 3D digital models from 3D scan of the human, in addition to the model also uses an advanced full-color 3D printer, the fidelity is very high. At present, this model has attracted the attention of many other colleges and universities around the world and commercial supply, so I believe it won't be long before, it appears all over the world, making a contribution to medical education.
Stanford University fusion, 3D printing and scanning techniques to explore deeper application
Scientists at Stanford University's latest project is "effect of microstructure change of permeability of rock". For this project, research scientists discussed the possibility of using 3D printing technology of the oldest rocks. Although it has yet to pass the idea to study Mars rocks, but geologists have found that 3D printing can be finished with the study of nature, such as porosity and permeability, and how they are changing. With the development of science and technology, 3D printing and remote can even create 3D imaging from the Moon, Mars rock copies.
Boston University stem cell research using 3D printing technology
Stem cells due to their ability to turn specific cells and has a huge potential in the area of medical research. One day they can to those who need organ transplants or suffering from illnesses patients can replace the cells of renewable resources, such as those patients with Parkinson's disease, and cardiovascular disease in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus patients.
In an effort to achieve these goals, the Boston University PotomacPhotonics firm and 3D printing company provides 3D printing technology to create a micro-environment controlled by the cell, in the micro-environment management and estimating how stem cells through direct contact and cells secrete factors influence each other.
Germany Stuttgart University 3D printing made the world's smallest camera
Germany Stuttgart University research team through 3D printing technology to produce the world's smallest camera, only for twice times the width of human hair, human hair width is between 10um~200um. Researchers said they proposed the new concept in the field of optics, opened a micro-optical 3D printing and the complex design of the lens.
This lens lets the camera is only salt. It can take high-resolution pictures can also be installed in only a PIN-thick optical fiber end. The technologies expected to minimally invasive surgery and bring about innovations in medical devices internal organs checked, can greatly promote micro-robots and drones in the vision of progress.
Making laser radar chip at MIT Subversion scanning the world
Massachusetts Institute of technology researchers are developing laser radar chips on a 300 mm wafer, and cost as low as $ 10. More importantly, in the equipment of non-mechanical Beam steering machinery laser radar system than the current speed of 1000 times.
This breakthrough technology was developed by PhD student ChristopherV.Poulton teacher MichaelR.Watts Professor in the IEEE published information in detail. In their view, new 3D scanning of laser radar chip will overturn the current market applications ranging from robot to vehicle, and wearable sensors.
