MIT Nanofiber Nozzle

Postby reify » Tue Oct 31, 2017 12:02 pm

Some very cool news - a team at MIT has used a Solus to 3D print a nanofiber nozzle that greatly reduces costs and allows them to dramatically speed up the development process:

Wonder how they get the excess resin out of something so fine in detail.

That’s why they use SolusProto. Very low viscosity. Put it into the ultrasonic to remove the resin.

Wow... how do they calibrate it
I'm not able to calibrate that fine. LOL
