Mainebiz lists two UMaine feats as most unusual of 2019

Two of Mainebiz’s most unusual stories of 2019 came from the University of Maine: green crab dog biscuits and the unveiling of the world’s largest 3D printer. Angela Myracle, an assistant professor of human nutrition in the School of Food and Agriculture, and Anna Smestad, a human nutrition and pre-med major, devised a process to make the dog biscuits with the voracious invasive species. In October, the Advanced Structures and Composites Center unveiled a 25-foot patrol boat, which is the largest 3D-printed object in the world. It was printed in three days in September by UMaine’s new 3D printer, also the largest in the world.
