Weber University's Miller Advanced Research and Solutions Center (MARS Center) is using an Impossible Objects CBAM-2 3D printer for Air Force parts that are improvements over the originals. The paper “Defining Soft Tissue: Bitmap Printing of Soft Tissue for Surgical Planning” by Robert MacCurdy of CU Boulder tells us of software to make a six material bitmap based on a DICOM file. This could mean better voxel level definition and 3D printing of soft tissue models. What if we applied this kind of individual control and definition at the voxel level to other things? Think of the Aerorise backpack by Jack Wolfskin made by Oechsler on Carbon systems. What if we had voxel level control and mass customized the backpack pads at the voxel level?
