Polymers, printing, and pathways
A novel approach to 3D printing using a support bath can greatly expand the types of polymers that can be printed, enable chemical reactions of the printed materials to gain novel material properties, and increase the mechanical strength and reduce the print time of mechanical parts through design optimization.
Next Manufacturing hosts Pittsburgh Chapter of Women in 3D Printing
Sandra DeVincent Wolf, executive director of the Next Manufacturing Center and the Manufacturing Futures Initiative, hosted an event during which members of Women in 3D Printing learned about CMU’s additive manufacturing research and education, attended demos, toured labs, and networked.

Lorrie Cranor, Brian Kovak Named Andrew Carnegie Fellows
Carnegie Mellon University faculty members Lorrie Cranor and Brian K. Kovak have been named to the 2019 Class of Andrew Carnegie Fellows by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, a philanthropic foundation that has supported the advancement of education and knowledge for more than a century.
Achieving provably-secure encryption
Earlier this week, a team consisting of researchers from CyLab released the world’s first verifiably secure industrial-strength cryptographic library—a set of code that can be used to protect data and is guaranteed to protect against the most popular classes of cyberattacks.
Self-healing material research
Carnegie Mellon University’s Mohammad Islam and Lining Yao are developing a self-healing actuator, called Healer, which is expected to fully heal itself within a few hours with the same shape, functionalities, and properties as before if it is broken into pieces. Such actuators can be used as sensors and synthetic muscles.
