3D Printed Bone Replica Helps Pilot with Ankle Cysts Keep Flying High

3D Printed Bone Replica Helps Pilot with Ankle Cysts Keep Flying High

The talus, part of the tarsus group of foot bones that transmits the entire weight of the body to the foot, is a large ankle bone that articulates with the tibia and heel bone. Obviously it’s a pretty important bone in terms of comfort while walking and performing other activities, like flying a plane, so when […]

Physicians and Engineers Use 3D Printing and Modeling to Determine Which Surgical Approach is Best in Aortic Valve Replacements

Physicians and Engineers Use 3D Printing and Modeling to Determine Which Surgical Approach is Best in Aortic Valve Replacements

We’ve seen 3D printed heart valve models used for training purposes before, as well as 3D printed patient-specific heart valve models and aortas used in pre-surgical planning. The latter is what physicians from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and biomedical engineers from the university’s College of Engineering are focusing on – using 3D printing and personalized modeling […]

NYU Surgeons Create Realistic 3D Printed Masks for Facial Transplant Donors and Their Families

NYU Surgeons Create Realistic 3D Printed Masks for Facial Transplant Donors and Their Families

In the case of some transplants, the organ donor is still alive and can lead a normal life post-surgery, such as someone who donates their kidney. But for many transplant surgeries, this is not possible, especially when it comes to a donated heart or face. A team of 3D printing experts at NYU are embarking on […]

Photographer Uses Drone to 3D Print Peruvian "Christ of the Pacific" Statue

When I hear the word “drone,” often my mind wanders to the technology’s military applications. I have to remind myself that a drone is a flying remote controlled machine or “unmanned aerial vehicle” (UAV). Not only is there nothing inherently militaristic about the technology, many creative makers and engineers have been using drones for very different […]
