Self Assembly of 3D objects One of most exciting uses of 3D Printing is the ability to print an object (usually something quite flat) that then assembles into the final object. We have discussed this before. Here is another way of doing it: Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a way to make two-dimensional patterns self-assemble into three-dimensional objects by simply shining light on them. Print some plastic – then shine light on it

Bolivian Golden Bat Found To Be New To Science Scientists examining museum specimens of bats from South America have found that a distinctive, gold colored species which was previously confused with another bat is actually a species new to science. This striking new species, which is is thought to be endemic to Bolivia, was originally classified as the similar looking species Myotis simus which can be found in numerous South American countries. However, after comparing fur color and other external features, scientists noted several important differences between specimens that suggested this species was distinct from other Myotis species, including M. simus. In particular, the new species is covered in thick, fluffy golden fur unlike M. simus which is more orange-brown in color. This has earned these bats the name M. midastactus after King Midas from Greek mythology who could turn anything he touched into gold.

3D-Printing Technology Produces Modern Exoskeletal Cast With this new 3D-printed exoskeletal cast idea, the incredibly fun and funky looking design provides a bit of leeway when it comes to scratching that itch halfway down your arm or balancing one leg outside of the shower so as not to get the cast wet. Victoria University of Wellington Architecture and Design school graduate Jake Evill recently developed this concept, called Cortex. According to Evill, the exoskeletal cast provides a strong fractured-bone support system featuring lightweight protection that is ventilated, recyclable, and shower friendly. Evill says, "After many centuries of splints and cumbersome plaster casts that have been the itchy and smelly bane of millions of children, adults and the aged alike, the world over, we at last bring fracture support into the 21st century."
