Using an Inkjet Robot On Curved FDM Surfaces to Get the Best of Both Worlds

Using an Inkjet Robot On Curved FDM Surfaces to Get the Best of Both Worlds

So far, 3D creators have experimented with hydrographics, ultrasonic misting, and water marbling as ways to make Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)-created objects more visually interesting. Now, an Austrian-based group is experimenting with using inkjet printing robots to beautify designers’ creations. The combination of FFF for dimensional accuracy as well as toughness and inkjet for aesthetics […]

3D Printed Esophagus Successfully Transplanted Into Rats

3D Printed Esophagus Successfully Transplanted Into Rats

In the race to 3D print and transplant seemingly every part of the human body, the esophagus has been a particular challenge for scientists and doctors. But a team of Japanese researchers has now successfully transplanted a 3D bioprinted esophagus into rats. The esophagus, which was printed using Cyfuse’s bio 3D printing software Regenova, maintained its […]

How 3D Printing Could Impact Technology Doping In Sport

How 3D Printing Could Impact Technology Doping In Sport

Elite-level athletes are notorious for trying to stay one-step ahead. In the past, this has meant using nutrition science, advanced statistics, and even doping using performance-enhancing drugs. But in the future it may mean doping with technology instead. 3D printing could play a big role in this, further complicating the job of sports’ anti-doping policing […]
