3D Printing News Unpeeled: Custom Mice and Bioprinted Plants


Share this Article

Formify is using MJF to 3D print custom mice made to order specifically for your hand alone. The company says that it only needs a picture of your hand and then will use the magic of machine learning to generate the relevant STL. If this works this could be a new path to mass customization that dispenses with 3D scanning.

A new paper looks at how we can use bioprinting to study plants, which would be a new application area and market for the technology. The team from NC Plant Sciences Initiative of the North Carolina State University in Raleigh North Carolina may have opened up a wholly new market.

A patent by Align showcases a customized 3D printed set of retractors to keep your mouth open. What’s more, this set of retractors will also hold your phone. Yes, its crazy but coming from a completely disruptive company such as Align that is one of the world´s. biggest 3D printing users means we need to take a gander.
