10 Highlights of the EnvisionTEC 3D-Bioplotter's Long Career

10 Highlights of the EnvisionTEC 3D-Bioplotter's Long Career

Last week, we took a look at what has become one of the most commonly used 3D bioprinters in the industry. The 3D-Bioplotter from EnvisionTEC has now been used in more than 200 peer-reviewed research studies. That’s an impressive accomplishment, and it’s definitely worth taking a look at the important work that has been done using […]

University of Wollongong Researchers 3D Print Brain Tissue From Human Stem Cells

When it comes to treating disease and injury, the brain might be the most difficult organ in the entire body. Everything else in the body is controlled by the brain, so damage or malfunction within the brain can have a devastating effect on everything from motor skills to personality. But scientists at the University of […]

Researchers Introduce 3D Printed Soft Robotic Hand with Human Touch

Researchers Introduce 3D Printed Soft Robotic Hand with Human Touch

Cornell University researchers recently developed a realistic-looking prosthetic hand, for just $50, using 3D printing, soft robotics, and lithography. It can handle decidedly more delicate tasks, because it is the exact opposite of the stereotypical clunky metal robot most people imagine: it can grip, sort, and sense what it is touching, and not only resembles, […]

Australian Researchers Combine Robotics and 3D Printing to Design a Prosthetic That Could Restore the Sense of Touch

Prosthetic limbs have come a long way in a very short amount of time. Not long ago, prosthetic hands and arms were clunky, awkward and limited in function. Now, thanks to 3D printing, prosthetics can be quickly and easily custom-fit and even specially designed for functions like playing basketball or swimming. People who have lost limbs are […]

It’s hard to keep up with 3D bioprinting technology. What seemed, not that long ago, like a futuristic dream is now advancing at an incredible speed. Numerous organizations, from corporations to universities, are developing their own variations on the technology, each slightly different, but all aimed at the same goal – to 3D print viable human […]

New 3D App Helps People with Dementia Better Navigate Their Homes

New 3D App Helps People with Dementia Better Navigate Their Homes

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the condition known as dementia is a “general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life.” This condition is marked by memory loss, and Alzheimer’s disease, more frequently diagnosed in elderly people, is the most common form of dementia. Impeding people’s ability to live independently, […]

University of Wollongong is Offering a Free Online Course in 3D Bioprinting

Of all the things that 3D printing is capable of, bioprinting is possibly the most incredible. It’s one thing to be able to print perfectly accurate replicas of individual organs, but the idea of printing actual, working human organs seems unreal. Medical researchers are getting ever closer to being able to do so, however: a 3D […]

Wire-Feed Additive Manufacturing Holds Great Potential for 3D Printing

Self-examination is a component of practice in any area that has begun to coalesce into a field in its own right. The development of an academic interest in the history and progress of additive manufacturing is the hallmark of a budding field that moves beyond mere technique. Faculty from Engineering and Information Sciences part of […]

A 4D Printed Valve That Actuates According to Water Temperature

It may seem a touch misleading in name, but scientists at the University of Wollongong say they’re creating what they call 4D printing. The fourth dimension they refer to is time and shape shifting as the researchers have begun to develop 3D printed materials capable of morphing into new structures – post production – as […]

3D Printed Electronic 'Jell-O' Could Become a Useful Edible Diagnostic Tool

3D Printed Electronic 'Jell-O' Could Become a Useful Edible Diagnostic Tool

Remember when Jell-o® advertised its product as the food that’s “fun to eat”? Jell-o® or, more generically, gelatin, is taking a serious role in the field of medical diagnostics — in 3D printed form. 3D printed electronic gelatin may eventually be used to get inside of a patient’s body and detect biochemical imbalances. Not unlike diagnostic […]

Australian Scientist Improves 3D Printing to Fortify Hydrogels For Cartilage Printing

When I was a kid, at least two highly educational hours a week were devoted to prime-time, riveted viewing of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. These characters were part hero, part cyborg, put together with artificial parts, pure fiction and lots of magic—not to mention, outlandish fantasy. No longer fiction or […]

3D Bioprinting Master's Degree Offered For the First Time Ever

The 3D bioprinting space, also known as biofabrication has been really heating up. It seems that every week we hear another story in which the technology is able to either save a life or make a life so much better. The number of uses, as well as cases, that will eventually require bioprinting will only continue […]
