MIT's new 3D printed nozzle device could make versatile nanofiber meshes at much lower cost

Researchers at MIT have developed a 3D printed nozzle device for producing nanofiber meshes. The device, made with a DLP 3D printer, matches the speed and power of its MIT-made predecessor, but produces more uniform fiber diameters at a much lower cost. The creation of nanofiber meshes is useful in a wide range of applications, from water filtration to tissue engineering to solar energy. But the conditions needed to make the meshes can often be hard to obtain: an airlocked clean room has traditionally been required for accurate mesh fabrication, making the process impractical and even impossible for many […]
