3D printed bones are yet another revolutionary application of 3D printing technology. Though it's still an emerging field of research, it has the potential to change the face of medicine. Here are some of the most promising projects for 3D printed bones.
People use 3D models in many more application areas than 3D printing, including medicine, education, and animation. Make your project perfect using this list of the best 3D skeleton model sources.
3D bioprinting organs, most of all hearts, is becoming useful for researchers and medical professionals all over the world. Although not quite yet a reality, the field is very promising. In this article, we'll cover some of the most promising 3D printed heart projects of 2018.
Thanks to the growing proclivity for community driven research, it's now possible to 3D print your own copy of famous ancient fossil Lucy.
A team of scientists from the University of Oxford showed how it's possible to 3D print living mammalian cells into living tissue constructs.
Researchers from ETH Zurich have developed an entirely soft artificial heart made with a 3D printing and lost-wax casting technique.
3D printing may provide a sustainable solution to the current crisis of coral reef death globally. Population growth and the environmental burden that accompanies it has taken a serious toll on the Australian Great Barrier Reef and many other coral reefs over the last few years.
Using 3D facial reconstruction and 3D printing technologies, a team of researchers has revealed what Jonathan Swift, the Irish writer best known for “Gulliver’s Travels” looked like at the time of his death.
A team of behavioral ecologists out of the University of Windsor, Canada, studies the mating habits of color-changing toads in Costa Rica using RoboToads -- 3D printed, motorized replicas.
Scientists from Temple University in Philadelphia created a prototype for an "electrospun healing" device which uses soy protein and water to print personalized bandages directly onto a patient's skin.
CaloriSMART is a advanced model system that uses magnetocaloric materials to achieve refrigeration cooling. The system was designed by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory.
Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology developed tensegrity structures using 3D printers. The 3D printed objects dramatically expand when exposed to heat in a process which is also known as 4D printing.
Surgery on a newborn child, unable to breathe, was made possible thanks to a 3D printed skull created by a team at Royal Perth Hospital.
Researchers from Brigham Young University have created a custom SLA 3D printer and resin so they can print tiny microfluidics devices.
Using digital scanning and the Form 2, Digital Smile Design allows dental patients to view the results of their procedure before it happens.
We could soon see custom-shaped 3D printed explosives on the battlefield. A Tennessee-based consultancy, called E&G Associates, is aiding the US Navy in the creation of such devices.
