LAIKA's Brian McLean Talks About 3D Printed Faces for Studio's New Stop Motion Animation Film
While attending SOLIDWORKS World 2019 in Dallas recently, I learned during my interview with Stratasys that the company's multi-material J750 3D printer, which offers over 500,000 different color combinations, was the only 3D printer used during production of Missing Link, the latest stop motion animation film from Oregon-based LAIKA. The movie is about Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman), an investigator of myths and monsters, and the legendary Sasquatch (Zach Galifianakis), better known as Mr. Link,...
3D Printing GRCop-42: NASA Unveils Special Rocket Engine Alloy
Engineers at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) and NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) have recently 3D printed near-fully-dense GRCop-42 components. As is so often the case with today's 3D printed components, these latest parts may also prove to outshine those typically made through more conventional methods. The GRCop-42's 3D printing process and parameters were developed on a ConceptLaser M2 (Gen 1 2012 model) PBF machine, chosen due to its copper-friendliness, featuring both an inert glovebox...

UK Researchers Use 3D Printing to Evoke Sensory Food Experiences
Food 3D printer Food and water are necessary for humans to survive, no matter what, but they are also often a source of enjoyment too, leading to the questioning adage of whether some of us eat to live—or live to eat. But what about eating to reinforce sentimental moments, and to improve your memory? UK researchers studied the connection between food and memory cues in 'Tip of my Tongue: Eating for Cognition,' using 3D printing to create their epicurean samples. Just like a certain smell or item...

Biological Gradients Help Researchers Understand More in Bioprinting
Selective irradiation method to induce linear or radial gradients on a photosensitive substrate. Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation is selectively filtered by a mask, which is either completely opaque (a) or has a designed distribution of opacity (b). The movement of the mask or the selective irradiation induces a controlled modification of the substrate, which results in a physical or chemical gradient. Gradients present in structures today help us understand more about their properties, and this is...
