Video: This 3D Printed Gripper Doesn’t Need Electronics To Function

July 27, 2023

…gripper is not only 3D printed in one print, it also doesn’t need any electronics to work. The device was developed by a team of roboticists at UC San Diego, in collaboration with researchers at the BASF corporation, who detailed their work in a recent issue of Science Robotics.

Despite Fears, 3D Printing Has Positive Effects on Global Trade

August 16, 2022

3D printing technology enables economies to produce goods locally, so conventional wisdom has been that it would dramatically reduce international trade; however, new University of California San Diego and World Bank research presents robust evidence that 3D printing expanded trade.

Material Scientists Learn How to Make Liquid Crystal Shape-shift

September 25, 2020

By controlling the printing temperature of liquid crystal elastomer, researchers have shown that they can vary the degree of stiffness and actuation in structures made from 3D-printed liquid crystal elastomer.

Engineers Harness the Power of 3D Printing to Help Train Surgeons, Shorten Surgery Times

August 2, 2017

…orthopedic surgeons are using 3D printing to help train surgeons and shorten surgeries for the most common hip disorder found in children ages 9 to 16. In a recent study, researchers showed that allowing surgeons to prep on a 3D-printed model of the patient’s hip joint cut by about 25…

Qualcomm Institute Lends its Prototyping and 3D Printing Capabilities for Critical Medical Supplies

April 3, 2020

UC San Diego’s Qualcomm Institute is drawing on its unique range of expertise and technology to help in the rapid prototyping and development of medical supplies desperately needed in the fight against COVID-19.

Super Productive 3D Bioprinter Could Help Speed Up Drug Development

June 8, 2021

A new 3D bioprinter developed by UC San Diego nanoengineers operates at record speed—it can print a 96-well array of living human tissue samples within 30 minutes. The technology could help accelerate high-throughput preclinical drug screening and make it less costly.

3D Printed Corals Provide More Fertile Ground for Algae Growth

April 9, 2020

Researchers have 3D printed coral-inspired structures that are capable of growing dense populations of microscopic algae. The work could lead to the development of compact, more efficient bioreactors for producing algae-based biofuels, as well as new techniques to repair and restore coral reefs.

July 27, 2023

This soft robotic gripper is not only 3D printed in one print, it also doesn’t need any electronics to work. The device was developed by a team of roboticists at UC San Diego, in collaboration with researchers at the BASF corporation.

Bioprinting a 3D Liver-Like Device to Detoxify the Blood

May 9, 2014

…Diego have developed a 3D-printed device inspired by the liver to remove dangerous toxins from the blood. The device, which is designed to be used outside the body—much like dialysis – uses nanoparticles to trap pore-forming toxins that can damage cellular membranes and are a key factor in illnesses that…

Thanks to “Flexoskeletons,”These Insect-Inspired Robots are Faster and Cheaper to Make

April 9, 2020

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a new method that doesn’t require any special equipment and works in just minutes to create soft, flexible, 3D-printed robots.
