Penn State Researchers Use 3D Printing Technology to Improve Strength and Cell Adhesion of PDMS

Penn State Researchers Use 3D Printing Technology to Improve Strength and Cell Adhesion of PDMS

Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), also known as silicone rubber, has several useful properties, and there has been a lot of interest lately in 3D printing the material. However, it’s a difficult process, as you generally need to heat the material rapidly or use special chemistry to cure it. But according to a team of researchers from Penn State, […]

New 3D Bioprinting Method Could Lead to More Effective Treatment for Osteoarthritis

New 3D Bioprinting Method Could Lead to More Effective Treatment for Osteoarthritis

Everyone knows that arthritis is an all-too-common – and painful – condition, but the most common form is osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease. The condition is a result of the breakdown of cartilage and is, needless to say, extremely painful and debilitating. There are several methods of treating the condition, but […]

Researchers Look to Squid for Latest Eco-Friendly 3D Printing Material

Thermoplastics are fairly ubiquitous in the 3D printing space. As with any plastic material, though, they have always been subject to environmental concerns; how easy are they to produce, to use, to dispose of? What effects can this have on the environment? Will they maintain integrity if made with bio-based materials? Some materials that have […]
