3D printing news
In our 3D Printing News Briefs today, Nanoscribe has a new biocompatible material, and BCN3D’s Epsilon 3D printer won an award. CapStone Holdings is investing in mobility solutions, including the 3D printed Olli bus. Finally, Hochschule Karlsruhe, University of Applied Sciences (HsKA), is using MakerBot’s METHOD X to offer advanced engineering and technical training to students.
Nanoscribe Introduces New Photoresin for 3D Microfabrication


3D printed mesh tube with outstanding flexible and elastic properties as known from stents inserted into narrowed blood vessels to widen them.

Nanoscribe, a Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) spinoff company, has launched a new biocompatible IP-PDMS photoresin that can be used for the 3D microfabrication of elastomer-based applications, devices, and microsystems—making it a good fit for microfluidics, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), and life sciences. Flexible, elastic, and soft, the silicone-based AM material shows a Young’s modulus of 15.3 MPa and is the company’s first with elastomeric properties. The non-cytotoxic properties of this new IP-PDMS have been tested according to ISO standards, and many users are excited for its promising applications, including 3D designs mimicking soft tissue characteristics, elastic freeform cell scaffolds, microfluidic devices, and more.

Dr. René Hensel, Deputy Head of Functional Microstructures at the Leibniz INM – Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken, stated, “IP-PDMS is a remarkably elastic printing material that can be stretched by up to 240%.
“IP-PDMS, as a 3D printable material, is highly interesting for micropatterned functional surfaces. We can skip time-consuming molding steps to transfer designs into elastomers and new designs become feasible.”

BCN3D’s Epsilon 3D Printer Wins IF DESIGN AWARD 2021


World Design Guide recently announced the winners of this year’s iF DESIGN AWARD, and BCN3D Technologies was included in that prestigious list for its Epsilon 3D printer. According to the company’s Media Relations Manager David Martínez, nearly 10,000 entries were submitted from more than 50 countries, but the industrial workbench printer won over the 98-member jury of global independent design experts. BCN3D’s product designer Fermín Monreal Badet, who designed the aesthetic for the Epsilon, says that the award is “recognition for betting on aesthetics, technology, user experience, user interaction, and definitely for betting on the design.”

“The BCN3D Epsilon printers allow you to print parts to a real scale which is incredibly useful for validating concepts in the most realistic way. They also offer a range of different technical materials that allow to validate not only the interaction, but also the mechanical or dimensional behaviour among others, and even generate end-use parts,” Badet said about the award-winning system.
“In short, the Epsilon series obtains the performance of an industrial machine without neglecting usability, ergonomics, and aesthetics.”
