3D Printing RX – Ease of Accessibility and Substance Abuse One of the greatest contributing factors to the rise of prescription drug abuse is the ease of accessibility. Prescription drugs have become readily available in most households, and as a result prescription drug addiction has exploded in recent years. The increased availability of 3D printers […]
OT4 creates orthotics with HP Multi Jet Fusion technology and HP 3D PA 11 material, resulting in lighter, softer orthoses. Learn more about the 3D Printing Industry!
A team at Carnegie Mellon University, came up with design and its concept actually seems very familiar to crafters everywhere. Inspired by the techniques in handling a glue gun, they used a conventional fused deposition modeling (FDM), which is a form of 3D Printing, to fabricate these types of plastic hairs. You know when you […]
Here is a package arriving with 3D Printed custom made orthotics. It arrived and fit into my shoes perfectly. Watch the mystery unravel….”there is no business like shoe business.”
The dental market alone is worth an estimated 119 billion dollars. There are more specialty dental products than ever. Perhaps you have already seen the 3d-printed toothbrush that perfectly cleans your teeth in 6 seconds. Fixing cavities, getting crowns and replacing teeth has always been viewed as a painful, long and expensive process. Don’t get […]
This video clip demonstrates just some of the applications where 3d printing is being employed by dental labs and maxillo-facial labs to aid surgery planning. The Objet 3D printing dental system allows small and medium sized labs to take full advantage of the revolution in digital scanning with a fully automated and acccurate process that […]
The Objet 3D printing system allows small and medium sized labs to take full advantage of the revolution in digital scanning with a fully automated and acccurate process that reduces their cost-per-case, allows them to achieve higher output with less manpower and ultimately, compete with larger labs. This is another example of a market that […]
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
The market for dentistry in general has been constantly expanding. Especially here in the United States, people have come to value their teeth and their appearance more and more. It is estimated that by 2018, the orthodontic supply market alone will be worth 1.1 Billion. That is just for supplies (braces, retainers, molds). With the […]

There is nothing like sharp metal pieces constantly in your mouth to lacerate your lips and tongue then cause discomfort while trying to eat. Eventually that faithful day came where you finally got to have your braces removed! And […]
Kentucky bio-engineers claim that they’ll be able to produce a fully-functional artificial human heart using 3D printing one decade from now. So if you’re struck with a bout of heart disease, consider the option of a bioficial heart transplant by 2023! Scientists at the University of Louisville plan to create the heart, made out of […]
What turned out the be an experimental procedure has great possibilities for humans. The Duck gets a replacement foot. And People can too. People have to pay for this, but the duck said “bill me.”
Fox News Says forget electric toothbrushes. Using 3D printing, engineers have developed a new kind of toothbrush tailor-made to fit a person’s mouth. All a person must do to brush is bite down. At first glance, the “Blizzident” looks a bit like a hairy pair of dentures. The brush’s makers say it cleans teeth completely […]
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 […]
