Researchers Develop Flow-Casting Method for Bioactive Coating of 3D Printed Porous Titanium Implants

We often see titanium used in 3D printed implants for humans, and even for animals. When compared to implants that are more dense, porous titanium (PT) implants, with custom porosity…

Custom 3D Printed CT-Bone Graft Implants Coming to Japan and Europe

We first heard of innovative CT-Bone technology three years ago, when Dutch company Xilloc reached an agreement with Tokyo-based Next21 K.K., the creator of CT-Bone, to bring 3D printable bone into…

UK Researchers Continue Work on Nanokick Bioreactor, Progressing Toward 3D Printing Living Bone

The University of Glasgow received a £2.8 million grant in late 2016 in order to develop 3D printed bone for survivors of landmine blasts, which kill roughly 4,300 people each…

Researchers Improve Upon Trabecular Bone-Inspired 3D Printing Infill with New Algorithm

Whenever someone picks up one of the various 3D prints I have on my desk, they usually exclaim over how light it is. While a lot of that has to…

New Study Results Show That 3D Printed Surgical Models Can Equal Major Cost and Time Savings

Having personal experience with the typically agonizing time spent in a waiting room while a loved one undergoes surgery, I am a big fan of anything that safely reduces the…

EBM vs DMLS 3D Printing: Which Method and Surface Texture is Best for Titanium 3D Printed Implants?

3D printing is often used to manufacture implants and other prosthetic devices for amputees, but have you ever stopped to consider which 3D printing method, and surface texture, is the…

McGill University Researchers Use 3D Printing to Develop Bio-Inspired Interlocking Sutures

Researchers and professors at McGill University in Canada have worked with 3D printing a number of times, using the technology to 3D print better hip replacements, and even more absurd-sounding items,…

UNM Researchers Developing Bone-Ligament Adherence Systems, Using Student-Built 3D Bioprinter

A couple of years ago, 3D printing entered the curriculum at the University of New Mexico’s (UNM) Valencia campus, and researchers at the main campus in Albuquerque are now attempting…

Researchers Optimize Robust, Lightweight, Bone-Inspired 3D Printing Infill

There’s so much more that goes into a 3D print than many people realize. To those unfamiliar with how the process works, it looks like simple magic – but there…
