Five Children Receive Ear Implants Made From Their Own Cells, Thanks to 3D Printed Molds and Scaffolds

Five Children Receive Ear Implants Made From Their Own Cells, Thanks to 3D Printed Molds and Scaffolds

Unilateral microtia is a congenital deformity that impacts the function and shape of the ear, and according to the Stanford Ear Institute, it’s estimated to occur in roughly one out of every 5,000 live births, depending on ethnicity. The condition causes an undersized and malformed outer ear due to structural abnormalities, and can even result in hearing […]

Research Team in India Uses 3D Software and 3D Printing to Make Prosthetic Ear

Research Team in India Uses 3D Software and 3D Printing to Make Prosthetic Ear

As part of a college program, a team from the College of Engineering, Pune (CoEP) in India has developed unique software, which helped them make a 3D printed ear in just one week for 32-year-old Rucha (not her real name) from Kondhwa. Typically, it takes about a month to make an artificial ear, but thanks […]

Researchers 3D Print Microfluidic Blood Vessel Model to Study Disease-Causing Blood Clots

Researchers 3D Print Microfluidic Blood Vessel Model to Study Disease-Causing Blood Clots

We’ve seen 3D printed blood vessels before – even an entire functioning network of them that was surviving in mice – but researchers in the Netherlands who are working with blood vessels and 3D printing technology are focused on something a little different. The team, consisting of scientists from the University of Twente and Utrecht […]

Soft Robotics and 3D Printing Used to Make Flexible Gloves that Allow Users to Experience Tactile Feedback in a VR Environment

Soft Robotics and 3D Printing Used to Make Flexible Gloves that Allow Users to Experience Tactile Feedback in a VR Environment

Earlier this month, researchers at the University of California San Diego presented its soft robot, capable of walking over rough terrain with four 3D printed legs. Now, a different team with UC San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering is working on another soft robotics project, coupled with virtual reality, that might just be music to […]

Collider Pitches Its Orchid 3D Printer and Hybrid Technology at TechCrunch Startup Battlefield

Tennessee 3D printing startup Collider first crossed our radar screen in early 2016, when venture capital firm Asimov Ventures invested in the hardware manufacturer, which promised high 3D printing speed and new materials. The company calls the Business Development Center on the North Shore of Chattanooga home, and at Inside 3D Printing San Diego, Collider finally […]

Empa Researchers Use 3D Printed Fruit-Shaped Molds to Develop Artificial Fruit Sensor

You know what they say, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! I’m one of those people who has to have fruit every single day – whether it’s bananas for breakfast, or a big helping of berries at lunch, if I miss out on my daily dose of fruity goodness, I am not a […]

Anatomiz3D Creates 3D Printed Cranioplasty Implant Mold to Save Costs on Patient-Specific Healthcare

Anatomiz3D Creates 3D Printed Cranioplasty Implant Mold to Save Costs on Patient-Specific Healthcare

In terms of medical 3D printing, one area that always gets a lot of attention is the creation of patient-specific models. It can be very helpful for both patients and surgeons to see a 3D printed patient-specific model, in order to get a good visual of what’s to come in surgical procedures. Obviously, it’s also helpful […]

Recreating The Last Great Irish Elk Through 3D Printing

Recreating The Last Great Irish Elk Through 3D Printing

The Great Irish Elk was a majestic creature of heroic proportions that became extinct some 11,000 years ago. In a short movie by Brown Bag Films, created in 1998 and set in 9000 BCE, the last of the beasts’ days were imagined in all of their tragic beauty. The film follows the final interactions of […]

3D Printed Models Give Lessons about the Danger of Volcanoes

As we drove down the road toward La Laguna la María in Colima, I noticed that all of the cars were headed in the opposite direction. I made a light-hearted joke about the fact that all those other drivers knew something that we clearly didn’t. It wasn’t until I saw the armed civil guard standing in […]

3Dealise Brings to Life Rinus Roelofs’ Giant Cylindrical Knot Sculpture

There is an increasing realization that the divide between art and mathematics is an artificial one. One person who has known this all along is digital sculptor and mathematician Rinus Roelofs. The complex mathematical structures that are his playground are not always easy to create using traditional methods and so, for a recent creation, he […]
