MIT hosts some of the most prolific labs when it comes to 3D printing! It excels in various fields such as design, materials or 3D printer.  Dr Pierre-Thomas Brun is a young French mathematician based at MIT and a member of the team that created the amazing molten glass 3D printer – which they call  “viscous sewing machine“. He kindly accepted to answer to our questions. Dr Pierre-Thomas Brun is an Instructor in...

From 2011 to the present day the press has continued to report on the magic that is “the 3D printer”. Additive manufacturing has turned into the sexiest form of manufacturing, and (AM) has left traditional manufacturing searching for its place in the spotlight. The technology of additive manufacturing is currently being used very inventive ways that boarder on Sci-Fi,  which is why it’s sometimes hard to separate the...
