News & Reviews: Biomimetics Meets 3D Printing
Nanoscribe Newsletter
October 2017
Researchers often use artificial models fabricated via 3D printing to understand natural phenomena. In the following you will find examples of additively manufactured structures and materials - inspired by nature, printed with Nanoscribe - e.g. artificial gecko setae for the investigation of adhesive properties as well as 3D printed replicas of moth antennae.  

Please also have a look at our company news where you will find more about job vacancies, upcoming exhibitions and why renowned customers count on Nanoscribe solutions.

Best regards,
Your Nanoscribe team

In order to investigate the adhesive properties of gecko toes, our customers at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Pontedera have fabricated artificial gecko setae on the same size scale as their natural counterparts. More

Plants and animals have particular properties which are often related to their composition at the nano- and micrometer scale. Researchers and engineers learn from living organisms and use their observations for creating bioinspired materials by means of Nanoscribe's 3D printers. Read more on this topic in our new application note “Biomimetics”.
Application Note Biomimetics

Male moths use their feathery antennae to rapidly detect food and female pheromones over large distances. Their sense of smell could accomplish efficient chemical sensing for detecting drugs or dangerous substances. Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Lab and the Georgia Institute of Technology studied the design of moth antennae and replicated them by 3D printing. More
