\\ Plastic tissue realized by 3d printing technology. Researchers developed a new method enabling them to print with soft materials such as collagens, alginates and fibrins that naturally appear in the body. To date, medical 3D printing has been mainly used to create prosthetics.
Researchers at the federal technology institute ETH Zurich have developed a way of producing body parts containing cartilage, with the help of a 3D printer. One of the first practical applications of this method is reconstructive surgery. Damaged body parts, like a nose or an ear, can be rebuilt in a computer 3D model. Cartilage […]
First Bio-printing Event in Singapore at Biopolis, Singapore. Biopolis is an international research and development centre located in Singapore for biomedical sciences. Biomanufacturing is getting bigger and more famous in Asia. This conference marks a historical beginning in Singapore
The 3d printing revolution came to medicine and is making people happy while scaring them at the same time! 3-D printing—the process of making a solid object of any shape from a digital model—has grown increasingly common in recent years, allowing doctors to craft customized devices like hearing aids, dental implants, and surgical instruments. For […]
But while 3D printing holds promise for patients, it poses immense challenges for regulators, who must assess how to—or whether to—regulate the burgeoning sector. In a recent FDA Voice blog posting, FDA regulators noted that 3D-printed medical devices have already been used in FDA-cleared clinical interventions, and that it expects more devices to emerge in […]
So we all know that it takes incredible engineering and medical prowess to bioprint an organ or any human part – but why is it hard, even for the folks who do it? There are four levels of complexity in bioprinting. The director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in North Carolina identified […]
Organovo sells the Novogen MMX 3D printer that can print “structurally and functionally accurate bioprinted human tissue models,” in case you’re missing an organ. If you’re looking to learn more about bioprinting, help the bioprinting industry with research and development, or compete and know what you’re up against… A place to learn more would be […]
Duck Gets 3D-Printed Foot | This duck is missing a foot, but his rescuers got a 3D printer so they can keep printing him new feet. 3D Printed prosthetics have been around for a while, and here is another chance for people who care.
Rising Media’s Inside 3D Printing San Diego Reveals Agenda and Partners with Uformia to Announce The Nature Game; December 14-15, 2016 Rising Media announced the full program for Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, taking place in San Diego, California on December 14-15, 2016. Rising Media also announced details of The Nature Game, also taking […]
Shane Fox of Autodesk talks to TCT about the company’s new software solution for the medical industry. It seems Bioprinting is growing more and more.
On July 2014, 120 people gathered in Nazareth for 72 hours to design and develop together solutions for people with special needs. It was the first ever TOM: Tikkun Olam Makeathon. Tikkun Olam means “Fixing the World”, and we wanted to show that people brought together with the right surroundings can do a lot to […]
At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tibbits and researchers from the firms Stratasys and Autodesk Inc were trying to come up with a way of describing objects they were creating on 3D printers… objects that not only could be printed, but thanks to geometric code, could also later change shape and transform on their own. […]
The Micro is hitting Kickstarter today with the sole intention of becoming the first consumer 3D printer that’s at once accessible, affordable and easy on the eyes. ‘The dream here is definitely that you take something and install it as fast as the fastest plug-and-play device that you’ve ever seen and you’re focused on the […]
Retinal degeneration is a leading cause of blindness. With recent developments in 3d-printing technology it is possible to actually print eye cells. The added precision with a 3d-printer can arrange the cells in the complex arrangements necessary to function. Retinal damage is a three dimensional problem requiring layers of cells intricately placed. Researchers at Cambridge […]
3D Printing prints membranes the size of a specific heart. Sensors are added. The electrical connection stays intact. We can see how the heart is performing! For more bioprinting miracles check out http://bioprintingworld.com
http://youtu.be/3CkMuw9YOpY What will happen to the future of Medicine? We can bet that forward thinking doctors and hospitals are already looking hard at 3D Printing helping with transplants, organs, prosthetic devices and research. Bioprinting is becoming even more and more important and relevant as 3D Printing gets more efficient.
3D Printed Bike Parts. 3D Printed Body Parts. 3D Printed Car Parts. This quick video discusses several ideas. The 3D printing technology is used for both prototyping and distributed manufacturing with applications in architecture, construction (AEC), industrial design, automotive, aerospace, military, engineering, civil engineering, dental and medical industries, biotech (human tissue replacement), fashion, footwear, jewelry, […]
3D printing is revolutionizing manufacturing, enabling new products, and impacting business processes. Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, has gained a reputation for producing high quality seminars and wide-ranging exhibitions worldwide. And now another dimension has been added – Maker Summit & Pavilion. Under one roof all levels of 3D Printing interest are covered whether […]
can Vitamins same the day with 3D Printing in Medical uses? Bioprinting experts agree that using vitamins can be helpful in the process
Bioprinting. Is it ethical? The Dutch do it. But does it scare the Chinese? The Chinese released their first bioprinterand it is causing a stir!
Dying patients could someday receive a 3D-printed organ made from their own cells rather than wait on long lists for the short supply of organ transplants. Such a futuristic dream remains far from reality, but university labs and private companies have already taken the first careful steps by using 3D-printing technology to build tiny chunks […]
Ivan Owen and Richard Van As have been steadily producing more and more Robohands, now at over 170 people helped, since they created its design in 2011. At first, the hand was a conglomeration of cables, screws, and metal. Now, much of its production has been replaced with more efficient and more contemporary 3D printing […]
How Bioprinting Can Help Wounded Veterans Returning Home Researchers at the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) have been working to implement bioprinting to aid soldiers returning home with significant injuries. They helped form the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM), an $85 million dollar project focusing primarily on those wounded defending our […]
