Chinese Researchers Validate Effectiveness of Teenager's 3D Printed Custom Knee Joint Replacement Prosthesis

Chinese Researchers Validate Effectiveness of Teenager's 3D Printed Custom Knee Joint Replacement Prosthesis

When the cells in a person’s bone divide uncontrollably, a mass of invasive tissue, better known as a tumor, develops. While most bone tumors are benign, malignant forms occur most frequently in adolescent/young adult populations. Osteosarcoma is most often sited in the knee or upper arm, and tumors have a high potential to spread, potentially […]

Bespoke Bicycle Company in Australia Creates Prize-Winning Bike with 3D Printed Frame Components

We have three bicycles on the back porch of our home, all of which are used hand-me-downs. We don’t often ride bikes, so we don’t really mind that they’re not state-of-the-art models…but to some people, this matters a great deal. In Australia alone, there are about 35 bespoke bicycle companies, where even a basic model […]

Researchers Create Portable Bioprinter for Deep Skin Wound Repair

Researchers Create Portable Bioprinter for Deep Skin Wound Repair

While portable 3D printers do exist, the majority of them are not handheld, and generally use readily available materials, like PLA. But an innovative team of researchers from the University of Toronto have created a 3D printer that’s not only handheld, but it also prints skin tissue.

Moog and University at Buffalo Developing Artificial Intelligence for Image Recognition in Metal 3D Printing

3D printing is used increasingly in projects that require some type of recognition – for instance, CENIT’s 3D software tool can analyze a topologically optimized component and allocate it to the correct bionic component in a CAD catalog, and a cyber security firm fooled the iPhone X facial recognition system with a 3D printed mask. Now, motion […]
