Using 3D Printing to Sample the Ocean Floor

Using 3D Printing to Sample the Ocean Floor

When we think of biodiversity, we may think of forests with wildly differing species of birds, insects and other animals, or seas with wide varieties of fish. Sometimes biodiversity is easily visible in these larger species, but often it can only be measured on a very small scale. Dr. Matthew Cannon, a research associate in […]

3D Printing Can Help Astronauts Study Their Own Blood Samples In Space

Let’s say you go to your annual physical, and the doctor wants you to get a blood sample. No problem, right? It’s easy to take care of here on Earth, but if we end up living among the stars someday in deep space, this might end up being a pretty difficult task to complete. We […]

UCSF Uses 3D Cell Patterning Technology to Fold Living Tissue Into Complex Shapes

The concept behind the ancient, well-known paper folding art known as origami can also be applied to an organism’s development process – as an egg turns into an embryo, and later a mature, fully-formed being, the body wrinkles, stretches, and folds, just like a piece of origami art. We’ve seen 3D printing and origami combined […]

Read Before You Vape: 3D Printed Screening Device Shows That E-Cigarettes Are Just as Bad as Tobacco Cigarettes

In season three of Friends, my favorite sitcom in the world, Rachel Green tries to help her friend Chandler Bing quit smoking, first by physically removing cigarettes from his mouth, and then by giving him a hypnosis tape. Chandler, perpetually sarcastic, balances the tape on his arm like it’s a nicotine patch and watches in […]

UCLA & Swedish Researchers Create 3D Printed Microscope Attachment to Aid in Field Diagnostics for Cancer

Once again, 3D printing is allowing for impacts in the medical field that most of us could not have begun to comprehend just several years ago. While we report on many new medical devices helping patients around the world, the latest is a smartphone device created by researchers at California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA and […]

Making Visible the Invisible: Artist Uses DNA Phenotyping to Create 3D Printed Portraits of Incarcerated Chelsea Manning

Making Visible the Invisible: Artist Uses DNA Phenotyping to Create 3D Printed Portraits of Incarcerated Chelsea Manning

As of this year, Chelsea Manning has been in prison for six years. The US soldier has been incarcerated since 2010, when she was arrested for leaking confidential information, including diplomatic cables and war logs from the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, to WikiLeaks. There are some who consider the whistleblower to be a hero, while […]

3D Printed Genetic Models May Help Find Future Cancer Treatments

There is so much to know about the complexity of life that has already been discovered and yet there is an even greater amount that still remains to be explained. One particular topic that holds a great deal of fascination for researchers involves DNA. From the moment, in 1869, that such a thing as DNA was found to […]

This 3D Printed “DNA Lamp” is Incredibly Mesmerizing to Stare At

There has been so much made of 3D printing as a means for rapid prototyping, but one area many people certainly didn’t realize it would impact in such a huge way was the design space. 3D printing has been being utilized more and more in the creation of completely unique art pieces, furniture, fashion accessories, and […]

Researchers Use DNA as ‘Smart Glue’ to Provide Structure for 3D Bio-Printing

The abilities of 3D printing to create bio-materials is on the cutting edge of science, but has been somewhat limited to date by technicalities like massive expenses and the fact that 3D printing using microscale materials would lead to microscale products. These factors have so far severely limited the potential for applications including 3D printing […]

Synthetic DNA to Become “Ink” for 3D Printed Nanoscale Structures in Medical and Scientific Applications

We’ve heard about filament to produce our common and not so common 3D printed objects and devices.  We’ve also heard about the medical advances that 3D printing facilitates, such as the use of nylon polymer in customized surgical 3D printed implants.  Well, science and medical research has taken another large leap toward something virtually unimaginable, […]

Researchers Combine Ideas of 3D Printing With Molecular Self-assembly – Is Molecular Manufacturing Next?

What’s the ultimate extension of 3D printing technology? Where could 3D printing take us in the future? For me, I believe that eventually, whether it’s in my lifetime or not, we will have nano-factories, 3D printing at the molecular level. I envision a future where we are able to turn our garbage into just about anything […]

New DNA Technology May Soon Allow People to 3D Print Their Face from a Saliva Swap

New DNA Technology May Soon Allow People to 3D Print Their Face from a Saliva Swap

Every year thousands of major crimes go unsolved. Imagine if police could gather DNA evidence at a crime scene, and within minutes to hours, turn that sample into a 3D model of the persons face that the DNA belongs to. Police would then be able to know very accurately what that person looks like, from […]
