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 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.
One of the goals of low cost 3D printing is to be able to create medical and scientific devices from it. Diagnostically capable microfluidic models represent the first step into this exciting new world of 3D printing and biosensing capabilities.
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.
A team of scientists from the University of Oxford showed how it's possible to 3D print living mammalian cells into living tissue constructs.
Thanks to the growing proclivity for community driven research, it's now possible to 3D print your own copy of famous ancient fossil Lucy.
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.
Researchers from ETH Zurich have developed an entirely soft artificial heart made with a 3D printing and lost-wax casting technique.
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.
Swiss researchers at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne have developed a way to 3D print microscopic structures with an optical fiber as thin as a human hair.
Historians used 3D scanning to find out more about a statuette called Venus of Dolní Věstonice, found in 1925 by Czech archaeologists.
Researchers from Brigham Young University have created a custom SLA 3D printer and resin so they can print tiny microfluidics devices.
In her spare time, enterprising 16-year-old Kavya Kopparupu has made a cheap and effective 3D printed system to diagnose diabetic retinopathy.
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.
Irish company AquaRoot Technologies has developed a way to easily create irrigation pipes that are both biodegradable and customized.
Purdue researchers have developed a process which enables them to 3D print extremely viscous materials. Due to this, they should be able to 3D print everything from cookie dough to biomedical implants.
Researchers at ETH Zurich and Caltech developed a 3D printed submarine which doesn't need fuel, electricity, propellant or even an engine. Instead, it exploits temperature changes in the water to complete complex movements.
