New technology will speed up 3D printing

3D printers are devices whose functionality can not be denied. They produce everything from toys to medical implants to meals. The problem is that they do it very slowly, however, thanks to the new technology developed by Carbon3D, these devices will soon be very fast.

Devices called 3D printers, they can produce almost anything, from small items, through the car body, to the home finish. But they have a major disadvantage, and it is quite a long time to create a product that can be up to several hours.

Joseph DeSimone, co-founder of Carbon3D and professor of chemistry at the University of North Carolina, however, says he has developed a new print method that speeds up the process. In his opinion, printing will be faster than 25 to 100 times. The method instead of superimposing the individual layers assumes that the entire object is formed immediately, and then uses oxygen and light to harden the material.

White graphene will improve the cooling of gadgets

Grafen is undoubtedly the greatest invention of recent years, which enables to build faster processors, more efficient photovoltaic panels as well as longer working batteries. Another application of this material will be the much more efficient cooling systems of different devices.

Graf is a great conductor of heat, but has some limitations. Heat energy easily spreads over the surface of the graphene, but is unable to penetrate the material consisting of many layers. Rice University researchers have, however, developed a method to circumvent the restriction.

According to the researchers, the creation of a three-dimensional structure of white graphite in the form of boron nitrate nanotubes will allow the heat to dissipate in all directions.

The discovery of scientists is extremely important for the consumer electronics market, as it will allow for smaller and more efficient cooling of the components in the future, significantly more effective in protecting them from overheating. This way, you will be able to build even more powerful mobile devices without worrying that their casing stages come from excessive heat generation.
