In summer 2014 I worked at Voxel8 as an design intern with fellow RISD student Juan Carlos. Here are some highlights of my experience and our design work. Ideation Sketches (May 27 to June 9): At this stage I am doing sketches of different concept printers. I’m not concerning about the details at this point, just the overall shape and dimension, and come up with some material suggestions. I’m working with mechanical engineers, electronic engineers and software designers, and they […]
A. Sydney Gladman, Asha-Dee N. Celestine, Nancy R. Sottos and Scott R. White Inspired by damage repair in biological systems, S. R. White and team demonstrate a novel self-healing system in a non-living commercial biomaterial on page 202. This self-healing acrylic bone cement is enabled by solvent-filled microcapsules, which heal crack damage and restore up to 80% of the initial fracture toughness of the cement. This innovation has major implications for extending the lifetime of orthopedic joint replacements. Article first […]
