CG Bio Receives Approval for 3D Printed Cheekbones

Traditionally, there has always been some risk involved when implanting anything new into the human body, whether it’s an organ transplant, a bone graft or artificial implant. The body’s immune response is designed to reject anything foreign, and that includes organs or bone that come from other donors, as well as synthetic items. That’s why […]

Rice University Students Develop 3D Printed Training Models for Cervical Cancer Screenings

Rice University Students Develop 3D Printed Training Models for Cervical Cancer Screenings

Nearly 300,000 women die of cervical cancer every year. That’s a sobering global statistic, but even more sobering is that the large majority – about 85 percent – of those deaths occur in developing countries, where adequate detection and treatment methods are not readily available. These deaths would be preventable, if only these countries had […]

Wiivv Engineer Plans to Run Boston Marathon in 3D Printed Flip-Flops

Most people don’t even like to walk very long distances in flip-flops. They’re not exactly meant for it, with their flat beds, zero ankle support, and uncomfortable thong-thing. They’re meant for going to the beach, or kicking around the yard, not for hiking, or walking around cities, and certainly not for running marathons. The very […]
