Welcome to another edition of the top 5 videos of the week! We have an exciting lineup for you today, ranging from the latest developments in 3D printing to a heartwarming story about a dog who received a 3D printed prosthesis. So sit back, relax, and let’s dive into the highlights from the additive manufacturing world.

In our first video, we’ll take a closer look at Perdue University’s 3D printed solar race car. This impressive vehicle, named Apollo, was designed, built, and raced throughout 2022. It ended the year on a high note by placing second in the Shell Eco Marathon race. Made from carbon fiber polycarbonate, Apollo showcases the ingenuity and hard work of the Perdue student engineering team.

Next up, we have a video highlighting an emerging technology in the AM industry. Sandia National Laboratory’s R&D 100 Award-winning project focuses on electrochemical metal 3D printing. This innovative technique offers several advantages, including a safer working environment, more material options, and a self-contained nozzle. The video also explores potential applications of electrochemical AM in manufacturing, such as solar panels and electronics.

Ever wondered if insects could be transformed into biodegradable materials? The American Chemical Society dives into the current state of research on insect-based bioplastics in our third video. They discuss the implications and potential future applications of this exciting field in various industries. And don’t worry, the video is light on creepy crawly images!

In our fourth video, we explore how 3D printing has revolutionized one company’s supply chain. Alan Guyan, the Founder and CEO of Made Plus, shares his experience of integrating additive manufacturing into his business. He discusses the positive impact it has had on his supply chain from start to finish, and you’ll also get a closer look at his unique 3D printed footwear.

Last but certainly not least, we have an incredibly heartwarming story about Cleo, a three-legged pup who received a 3D printed prosthesis. Marques Brownlee takes us through the entire process, from understanding why animals need prosthetics to the 3D mapping and manufacturing involved. He also highlights the importance of physical therapy in helping Cleo adapt to her new limb.
