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.
Archaeologists are embracing 3D printing and scanning as innovative ways to both preserve and display the past. Check out this guide on how these technologies are bringing the past to life.
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.
Brady Neiles is a resource biologist from South Dakota’s Game, Fish & Parks who used 3D printing to change the way wildlife populations are tracked.
A team at the University of Minnesota created 3D printed artificial organs that offer better learning opportunities for surgical training.
Researchers at the Technical University of Munich have developed a 3D printed facade that combines design and function.

In her spare time, enterprising 16-year-old Kavya Kopparupu has made a cheap and effective 3D printed system to diagnose diabetic retinopathy.
Thanks to the growing proclivity for community driven research, it's now possible to 3D print your own copy of famous ancient fossil Lucy.
India's first successful implantation of an artificial 3D printed vertebrae at a Gurgaon hospital allowed a 32-year-old woman to walk again.
Cambridge Scientists have created the WaterScope - 3D printed open source microscope to test for waterborne diseases in an affordable way.
Scientists from the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory used a modified 3D printer to create a magnetic device out of liquids.
Vets from the University of Queensland are using 3D printing to create models of dog skulls which help educate children on why popular short-nosed dog breeds are problematic pets.
T3DP, an R&D project with roots in blockchain and green tech, uses 3D printing to create solar panels which can have double the conversion efficiency of current ones.
Scientists from the University of Cambridge developed a 3D printed robotic hand which can produce a wide range of movement. It can even play the piano.
Scientists from the University of Sheffield and Imperial College London created a new family of meta-crystal materials, which are stronger and more durable.
Engineers from MIT developed a new technique called the direct-write colloidal assembly process. It can build centimeter-high crystals made from billions of individual colloids. They did this by uniting the principles of 3D printing and self-assembly.
