Algorithms and 3D Printing Can Be Used to Create Realistic Nasal Prostheses

While it’s a shock to lose any body part, psychological impact runs especially deep when a part of the face, like the nose, is impacted, as it’s so visible and so ingrained as a part of personal identity. In 2015, researchers at Morriston Hospital in Wales were hard at work developing a way to grow new tissues from human cells. […]

3D Printed Fabric Could Help Keep Wearers Cooler

3D Printed Fabric Could Help Keep Wearers Cooler

If you live in a hot climate, or even one that just experiences hot periods, there are few really good arguments for putting clothes on. Trying to maintain your metaphorical cool as sweat is pouring down your back and your core temperature reaches critical overload can be nigh on impossible. In addition, poor temperature controls […]

Realistic 3D Printed Small Intestine Model and Bioreactor Helps Understand the Gut

We’ve seen 3D printed stomach models, as well as tongues and livers, and even a 3D printed pancreas, but as far as I can tell, the technology has not been used often to study one of the most important parts of the digestive system – the small intestine, which, as many know, is actually twice […]

$90,000 Awarded to Developers of 3D Printed Retinal Model

$90,000 Awarded to Developers of 3D Printed Retinal Model

The retina is a light-sensitive layer of tissue in the eye that plays a vital role in vision – without a healthy, functioning retina, an eye cannot see properly. It’s important for medical professionals to gain a better understanding of diseases and conditions of the retina so that they can be better treated, but the […]

Researchers Combine Carbon Nanotubes and Nanocellulose to 3D Print Conductive Microfibers

3D printing technology can only go as far as the different materials that are able to be printed…but from metal and plastic to sand and even food, I don’t think we have to worry about running out of possible 3D printing materials. Nanofibrillated cellulose (nanocellulose or NFC), a novel biomaterial with multiple industrial and scientific […]

3D Bioprinted Placenta Model May Lead to Treatment for Leading Cause of Maternal Death

Despite preeclampsia being the leading cause of death from pregnancy there is a surprisingly little amount of information known about it, what causes it and how to prevent it. The condition occurs in about 5% of pregnancies worldwide, and while thankfully it isn’t always lethal, it does lead to approximately 30,000 deaths each year. Part of […]

University of Maryland Researchers Use Graphene to 3D Print Micro-Scale Heating Elements

In a laboratory setting, tiny high-temperature heating elements are typically used to initiate controlled chemical reactions in order to produce materials synthesis. This process is used when developing new compound materials or to produce a specifically desired byproduct of the chemical reaction. The typical heating elements used have several limitations, especially when working with materials […]
