3D Scanning and Printing Provide First Reconstruction of New Dinosaur Species

3D Systems

This was the experience of researcher Dr. Patrick Druckenmiller and his team at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, who this week announced a newly identified species of dinosaur in spite of difficulty locating matching pairs of bones. The new dino is a hadrosaur, or duck-billed dinosaur, that once roamed the North Slope of Alaska and is now known to modern science as the Ugrunaaluk kuukpikensis (Published in: Acta Paleontologica Polonica.).

Designer Spotlight: Josh Appleman – Geo Glitz

Shapeways Blog

Certain states, such as Hawaii, Alaska, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and Louisiana were tricky to model because of all the islands they have or because of thin portions of their geography. Because statement jewelry and accessories are always a good addition to any outfit, Josh Appleman’s shop Geo Glitz on Shapeways is definitely worth bookmarking. He’s created cufflinks shaped like every state in the United States.

National Parks 100th Anniversary

Shapeways Blog

Next stop, Denali National Park in Alaska, home to North America’s tallest mountain at 20,310 feet. It just so happens that today in 1916 the US government signed into law the National Parks Service Act. That means today is the 100th anniversary of the US National Parks. You can read more on the National Parks Centennial website. We’ve chosen a list of some our favorite parks.

Part 107 Testing Centers

3D Printing Hub

Even distant states such as Alaska and Hawaii have several testing centers. Taking the Part 107 knowledge test is one of the more important steps mandated by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) before a commercial drone pilot is given a remote pilot certificate. More commonly known as a drone license, a Part 107 remote pilot certificate is a requirement for pilots who are involved in commercial drone operations.

More importantly, the pylons would be flexible enough to withstand earthquakes, in the way that pylons built in the 1970s to carry Alaska’s oil pipeline have proved resilient to such shocks, Mr. Ahlborn notes. Written by Catherine Bolgar, in association with WSJ custom studios. Source: Hyperloop Transportation Technologies. Imagine traveling in capsules sucked through a tube using low air pressure and magnetic acceleration to achieve speeds of up to 760 miles (1,223 km) per hour.

7 Reasons Why Nuclear Waste Is Dangerous


Biologists have found the link between the increase of skin ulcers on seals and walruses in Alaska, and the leakage of radioactive liquid into the ocean from the 2011 accident in Fukushima [9]. Ever since we have discovered how to harness. the powerful energy contained within the nucleus of an atom, we have been using it – for both positive and negative purposes. Nuclear energy is an affordable, efficient and reliable option of generating power for many countries.

And possibly because of this, instead of making sweeping changes on commercial UAS integration, the FAA appears to be advancing the technology much more slowly through a case-by-case, individual approval system like the recent Alaska decision, Snyder said. Last June, the FAA gave approval for energy corporation BP and UAS manufacturer AeroVironment to fly a small “Puma” UAV for aerial surveys in Alaska —the first time the FAA has authorized a commercial UAS operation over land.

GE-Come Dust, Ice, Hail Stone and High-G Force: What it Takes for the LEAP Jet Engine to Prove its Mettle

ASRC tests 3D printed propellant injector for RD-180 rocket engine successor


The ASRC (Arctic Slope Regional Corporation) Federal Technical Services division, part of the ASRC Alaska Native Corporation, has test-fired a 3D printed subscale propellant injector that could be used on United Launch Alliance’s replacement for the Russian-built RD-180 rocket engine.

NASA awards $100K to winners of Compression Test Competition of 3D Printed Habitat Challenge


The two top-scoring teams were Foster + Partners | Branch Technology, which was awarded $85,930, and the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, which received $14,070 (for a total of $100,000). NASA has named the top-scoring teams for the current phase of its 3D Printed Habitat Challenge, Phase 2: Level 1 Compression Test Competition. The challenge, which saw participating teams 3D print samples of the space habitat materials they are developing, recently wrapped up.

New dinosaur species Ugrunaaluk kuukpikensis reconstructed thanks to 3D printed bones


With the help of Geomagic 3D scanners and software, a Professor of Geology in Alaska was able to reconstruct a skeletal model of a newly discovered dinosaur for the first time. One of the most impressive things about 3D printing technology is not how it is driving us into the future of manufacturing and design, but how it can still help us discover important facts about the past.

NOWlab teams with BigRep to 3D print biodegradable, biology-inspired Glacier stool


The Glacier is a stool design that takes its form inspiration from the melting ice structure of the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska and is produced using additive manufacturing. Unsurprisingly, some of the most memorable designed objects are those that combine both natural elements - such as through the use of biomimicry - with technology. Ultimately, the resulting pieces are a symbol of both a timeless natural world and the result of human evolution.
