Scientists develop new method to 3D print tools using Martian, lunar dust

Scientists have developed a new 3D-printing technique that can be used to create everything from small tools to large buildings with dust from the Moon or Mars, an advance that could enable humans to build colonies on extraterrestrial bodies with limited surrounding resources.

Researchers from the Northwestern University in the US have demonstrated the ability to 3D-print structures with simulants of Martian and lunar dust.The research uses an extension of their “3D-painting process,” which they previously employed to print hyperelastic “bone”, graphene and carbon nanotubes, and metals and alloys.

“For places like other planets and moons, where resources are limited, people would need to use what is available on that planet in order to live,” said Ramille Shah, assistant professor at Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering. “Our 3D paints really open up the ability to print different functional or structural objects to make habitats beyond Earth,” Shah said.

Researchers used NASA-approved lunar and Martian dust simulants, which have similar compositions, particle shapes, and sizes to the dusts found on lunar and Martian surfaces.They created the lunar and Martian 3D paints using the respective dusts, a series of simple solvents, and biopolymer, then 3D printed them with a simple extrusion process. The resulting structures are over 90 percent dust by weight.

Despite being made of rigid micro-rocks, the resulting 3D-painted material is flexible, elastic and tough – similar to rubber. This is the first example of rubber-like or soft materials resulting from lunar and Martian simulant materials. The material can be cut, rolled, folded, and otherwise shaped after being 3D painted, if desired.

“We even 3D-printed interlocking bricks, similar to Legos, that can be used as building blocks,” Shah said. Researchers are working on optimising ways to fire these 3D-painted structures in a furnace, which is an optional process that can transform the soft, rubbery objects into hard, ceramic-like structures.In the context of the broader 3D-painting technology, this work highlights the potential to use a single 3D printer on another planet to create structures from all kinds of materials, researchers said.

New method to 3D print customised medical devices developed

WASHINGTON: Researchers have developed a 3D printing technology that creates medical devices such as catheters for premature newborns and surgical implants customised according to individual patients.

The biomedical devices they are developing will be both stronger and lighter than current models and, with their customised design, ensure an appropriate fit.

One specific application of this new technology is developing patient-specific catheters, especially for premature newborns.

“With neonatal care, each baby is a different size, each baby has a different set of problems,” said lead researcher Randall Erb, assistant professor at Northeastern University in US.

“If you can print a catheter whose geometry is specific to the individual patient, you can insert it up to a certain critical spot, you can avoid puncturing veins, and you can expedite delivery of the contents,” said Erb.

The new technology enables researchers to control how the ceramic fibres are arranged – and hence control the mechanical properties of the material itself, the researchers said.

That control is critical if you are crafting devices with complex architectures, such as customised miniature biomedical devices.

Within a single patient-specific device, the corners, the curves, and the holes must all be reinforced by ceramic fibres arranged in just the right configuration to make the device durable.

This is the strategy taken by many natural composites from bones to trees.

“We are following nature’s lead by taking really simple building blocks but organising them in a fashion that results in really impressive mechanical properties,” said Joshua Martin, a doctoral candidate at Northeastern University.

Using magnets, Erb and Martin’s 3D printing method aligns each minuscule fibre in the direction that conforms precisely to the geometry of the item being printed.

The magnets are the defining ingredient in their 3D printing technology.

First the researchers “magnetise” the ceramic fibres by dusting them very lightly with iron oxide, which, Martin notes, has already been approved by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for drug-delivery applications.

They then apply ultralow magnetic fields to individual sections of the composite material – the ceramic fibres immersed in liquid plastic – to align the fibres according to the exacting specifications dictated by the product they are printing.

Finally, in a process called “stereolithography,” they build the product, layer by layer, using a computer-controlled laser beam that hardens the plastic. Each six-by-six inch layer takes a mere minute to complete.

The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.

3D print a USB stick: AMRC develops method for embedding electronics during SLA 3D printing

July 14, 2015 | By Alec

While 3D printers are already making custom prototyping easier, quicker and more affordable than ever before, one British team of scientists have developed a method that could make things even easier. The Design and Prototyping Group of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) have developed a method for embedding solid objects such as electronics into resin objects while 3D printing them with an SLA machine. To prove what it can do, they have 3D printed a USB memory stick by 3D printing the case around the circuitry, instead of making two halves and gluing them together.

The AMRC is part of the University of Sheffield, and is one of the most important research institutes in the field of advanced production in Britain. And this team with the purpose of incorporating solid objects into the printing process themselves, they accepted quite a challenge. However, its advantages are obvious; not only could it make the production of, say, electronics easier and more efficient, embedding them during printing offers better protection from dust, liquids, impact and so on. More generally speaking, it obviously also optimizes material use and assembly time, as little post processing will be required. Unsurprisingly, medical applications could also widely benefit from this technique.

As they explain, the trick is in keeping very careful track of the number of layers, before pausing the machine and inserting whatever object or equipment you want. ‘Embedding components is carried out by removing any unnecessary support material within the file processing ‘3DManage’ software, associated with the 3D Systems ProJet 6000 SLA machine. The build is then paused at the relevant layer height to fully encapsulate the component,’ they explain.

For their process, they relied on a ProJet 6000 SLA machine that builds layer of 0.1 mm. ‘The build was paused and the component inserted at layer 70 (7 mm) because it provided a clearance of 0.2 mm between the component and the top face of the void. This ensured the leveller did not contact the component and cause part damage or a failed build. A clearance of 0.1 mm was applied to all sides of the part to ease insertion of the component,’ they explain. ‘Once the component is in place, the build resumes. The 0.1 mm and 0.2 mm clearance gaps around the component will be filled with uncured epoxy resin, which remains uncured until the post-processing operation of fully curing the part in the UV chamber.’

After this part was printed, essential post-processing work was carried out, including cleaning and removing support material. THE USB drive was then tested before curing. While an interesting concept, it does of course increase print times as the part essentially becomes twice as tall (instead of two halves 3D printed side by side), but that’s an easy pill to swallow.

It also wouldn’t work on all time of structures, simply due to the angles of parts. ‘To prevent a build failing, it is recommended that support structures are generated for features with angles greater than 36° from the vertical plane. Consequently, support structures have to be built for any horizontal feature with a void underneath. Inserting the component during the build process eliminates the need for support material in the void where the component will be placed because the component itself acts as the support structure,’ they advise.

All in all, it’s an interesting option to further explore, though the fact that only SLA 3D printers can be used to do so is obviously a limitation. But as they explain, the SLA process was chosen over other additive manufacturing processes such as FDM because low temperature resins are obviously far less likely to damage the electronics than plastics that have been heated to over 200 degrees Celsius. This also means the practical applicability isn’t fantastic (a SLA USB stick will be quite a bit more expensive than a regular version), but it definitely opens the way for further studies. We are already dreaming about 3D printing complete electronic objects with just the click of a button.
