MESO-BRAIN Initiative to Use 3D Printing to Emulate the Human Neural Network

We all know just how critical a healthy and functional human brain is to our well-being and livelihood. An essential organ packed with soft nervous tissues, its nature is both complex and fragile, and it’s extremely important that we constantly keep its well-being and safety in mind. 3D printing technology has been playing a key […]

3MF Consortium Aims to Set New Standards for 3D Printing Files; GE Global Research Joins

3MF Consortium Aims to Set New Standards for 3D Printing Files; GE Global Research Joins

The 3MF Consortium aims to make some changes to the very foundation of 3D printing–and that begins with files. Concerned with file formats and a lack of standards for what is still a fledgling industry in many ways, their goal is to rid the industry of ‘inadequate formats,’ which offer far too much opportunity for […]
