3D-Print Goes Fashion Week

The fashion designer Alexis Walsh from New York regularly presents her latest 3D-printed creations at the New York Fashion Week. This year, she worked on 3D-printed studs that were afterwards attached by hand. The aim of the project is to connect the intuitive nature of handiwork with the technological progress of digital modeling.
But try it yourself!
Here in the Lab, unique jewelry, denim shoes and much more have been created.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

3D printed bridge railings in China

We are back from our summer break and still feed you with information on innovative technologies all over the world, but also again with interesting updates of our own projects!

Yesterday, the first 3D printed bridge railings in China was officially inaugurated in the city of Nanjing. Using the 3D printers instead of conventional technologies, not only saved around 50% of the usual costs, but made it possible to complete the entire project within 15 days. While in the past engineers usually had stability concerns, the bridge railings did far better in stress tests than traditional cement.

But please read for yourself….

Have an innovative start into the new week!

PLA Recycling at the Lab.

 

 

In our ViNN:Lab Recycling project we wanted to demonstrate how misprints, support material and other PLA leftovers can be recycled and reused to create something new.

Therefore we shredded PLA misprints and leftovers from a variety of prints and melted the shredded PLA in a conventional oven.

Afterwards we had a solid PLA plate which we reused at the Lab. In this case we lasered rings out of the recycled PLA plate.

From now on we plan to reuse as much of our PLA leftovers as possible this way :)

Best,
The ViNN:Lab Team

3D printing expanded by another dimension.

In the last couple of years we extensively reported about 3D printed in the field of medicine.

Now the innovative methods of medical technology were supplemented by a further dimension (time) and 4D printing was used treating the first patient.

The doctors used a printed implant which dissolves after a certain time. It thus fulfils the purpose of a temporary spacefiller and offers the body the chance of new tissue to settle through the implant.

You can read the full article here:

Unfortunately, the report does not show which material or which printing method was used exactly.

Nevertheless, we are very curious about other fields of application for the 4D printing method.

ViNN:Lab at the HIT Day

At the last HIT (Open University Day) of the TH Wildau we at the lab had the opportunity to interact with a lot of visitors and inform them about our daily business as well as current projects.

Throughout the whole day small and big visitors created „Brush-Bots and Maky Maky curcuits“ in different workshops.

We hope we where able to give a variety of people a better insight into the nature of the ViNN:Lab as well as teach them a little bit about the maker movement.

See you soon at the Lab!
