Titanium Weevil produced in response to researching wheat grain pest and information from the Australian National Insect Collection at CSIRO.
Given the insect body structure and capacity to survive in huge silo’s of grain, the opportunity to use titanium was an ideal material, especially to investigate CSIRO’s 3D titanium adaptive manufacturing.
The insects were achieved by advanced scanning techniques and Micro CT imaging with Dr Chuong Nguyen and Dr Sherry Mayo and adaption in MAYA by Eleanor Gates-Stuart.
