Nova Scotia Surgeons Use 3D Printed Brain Model in Surgical Planning For the First Time

Nova Scotia Surgeons Use 3D Printed Brain Model in Surgical Planning For the First Time

Last spring, Nick Rahr of Canada began experiencing some puzzling dizziness. His doctor conducted a brain scan, and told him that everything was clear, but a few months later Rahr contracted both bacterial and viral infections, compounded with severe head pain, and decided enough was enough. His wife was away, so he took a taxi […]

Canadian Government Invests in Adaptiiv and Its 3D Printed, Patient-Specific Boluses

To make sure that cancer patients are getting the full strength of their radiation treatment directed exactly where it is most needed, a device called a bolus can be used to “shape” the treatment to the specifics of the person’s body. These devices are traditionally made out of a rubbery material, but can now be […]

Fabricating Better Magnets with Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing

Fabricating Better Magnets with Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing

The high-performance magnets used in electric motors are typically made through processes like powder compaction, for sintered magnets, or injection molding for bonded magnets. These processes require multiple steps – the magnets need to first be fabricated and then shaped and assembled into a final product. But a pair of Canadian researchers have come up […]

3D Printed Lights and Artificial Intelligence Used in Interactive 'Living Architecture' Structure

A design that takes its cues from natural processes for creation is referred to as biophilic – rather than green design, which is used to keep harm from coming to the environment, biophilic design imitates the processes that allow the natural world to survive. Biophilic design has been used in a 3D printing construction project with living […]
