  • Patent number: 10501651
    Abstract: A 3D printing ink comprising a radio-opaque additive and a polymer ink and a method for 3D printing of anatomic replicas using the 3D printing ink are described. The radio-opaque additive is bismuth neodecanoate, and the amount of bismuth neodecanoate in the printing ink may range from about 6% to about 20% by weight. The polymer ink may be transparent or opaque. X-rays of anatomic replicas created with the 3D printing ink appear very similar to x-rays of organic hard tissues, thereby enhancing procedural training for health care professionals.

  • Patent number: 10472702
    Abstract: Differing from traditional alloys often containing one primary elemental composition, the present invention reforms a conventional superalloy to a high-entropy superalloy by redesigning the elemental compositions of the conventional superalloy based on a mixing entropy formula. Particularly, this high-entropy superalloy shows advantages of light weight and low cost under the premise of containing a low amount of expensive metal composition. The proposed high-entropy superalloy of the present invention comprises a primary elemental composition and at least one principal strengthening elemental composition, wherein the primary elemental composition has a first element content of at least 35 at % and each of the principal strengthening elemental compositions have a second element content of over 5 at %.
