3D Printing Helps to Make New Ears for Young Microtia Patients

3D Printing Helps to Make New Ears for Young Microtia Patients

We’ve seen cancer patients and car crash victims receive 3D printed ears after losing an existing ear, but what about children who were born with an ear that hadn’t completely developed yet? Microtia, which means ‘little ear’ in Greek, is a congenital condition where the external ear is either underdeveloped or not developed at all […]

Should Scientists Reconsider the Romer's Gap? Paleontologist Thinks So, After 3D Scanning Reveals Ancient Tetrapod Fossil Inside a Rock

Most humans enjoy something that is of great importance to our place in the natural history of the world, but that you likely don’t even think about much, unless you’re trying to pick something up, play the piano, or give someone a celebratory high five. I’m talking, of course, about five fingers on each hand. […]

Facial Reconstruction Experts Release Digital 3D Images of Robert the Bruce

Robert the Bruce, who defeated England’s Edward II in the early 1300s and brought about Scotland’s independence, is back in the 3D printing news headlines again, a little over a year after his almost 700-year-old destroyed tomb was reconstructed and 3D printed. Facial reconstruction experts with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) recently completed a two-year project in collaboration […]

Recreating Iron Age Jewelry with 3D Printing

The Orkney Islands are an archipelago off the northern coast of Scotland. Comprised of 70 islands, about 20 of which are inhabited, it has a rich and storied history and has provided insight into some of the oldest western European settlements. The islands have been inhabited for at least 8,500 years and their Neolithic remains are […]

3D Tech Eases Children's Fears, Streamlines the Process During Ear Implant Procedure

Undergoing even a routine medical procedure can be unnerving, no matter your age. But for children, whose understanding of rules and confidence in strangers is just developing, it can be even more terrifying. When a child is born with a condition that requires medical attention, they may become accustomed to the fear, but many medical […]

Downloads from LayerTrove: Make 3D Printing Disappointment a Thing of the Past—From the Space Shuttle to the Hulk

The world of design is vibrant and vast, and ever growing in this futuristic 3D age. It is, however, undeniably overshadowed in many cases by the intrinsic and powerful magic of 3D printing. As with many processes, the end product receives all the credit, and understandably so, as that is what we see before us. […]

3D Model of Centuries-Old Skull from Battle of Culloden Reveals New Information

3D Model of Centuries-Old Skull from Battle of Culloden Reveals New Information

Every now and then we have to freshen up on our military history. Why? Because 3D modeling and printing technology is being used to enhance artifact research and produce replicas of weapons used in historic battles. Occasionally it is also used to reproduce found bone fragments — like this skull found at the Battle of Culloden site. This battle was the last confrontation of the Jacobite rising against […]

3D Printing Reconstructs Destroyed 685-Year-Old Tomb of Scottish King Robert the Bruce

3D printing has been making its mark in museums and historical institutions over the past couple of years. We’ve seen it used to virtually ‘back up’ museum artifacts, hence allowing visitors of these exhibits to touch and feel precise replicas of valuable relics. The technology also has allowed schools and other organizations and individuals around […]
