The technology continues to evolve, but 3D printing is still mostly used for creating prototypes or parts that won’t have to endure tremendous stresses or rigorous wear and tear. That might not always be the case, however, as researchers at Rice University found a way to 3D print complex patterns resulting in plastic objects that… Read More Researchers 3D-Printed Plastic Cubes With Complex Patterns That Make them Bulletproof
Antibacterial materials and filaments for 3D printing, something that many consider being a key development for biomedical 3D printing applications – are now widely available through a series of new materials introduced by Santhiago, Chile-based startup Copper3D. More than 40% of amputees suffer some type of skin complication due to the use of their prostheses.… Read More Chilean startup Copper3D launches antibacterial filament for medical 3D printing applications
Dr. Anthony Atala grew a new bladder in a lab from a small section of Luke Massella’s bladder. Luke received the bladder as a transplant when he was 10 years old. The bladder has worked for 14 years without further surgery.
Sunconomy and Apis-Cor team up to build the first 3D printed houses in the USA. These two homes will be given to a disabled veteran and to a prison ministry Source: 3D printed affordable house | Sunconomy
A few weeks ago, in a 3D Printing group on Linkedin, I asked if anyone was aware of an inhabited 3D printed house. A couple of the responses I received alluded to housing as a bad match for 3D printing. One person went so far as to challenge James Wolff, CEO of D-Shape Enterprises, LLC,… Read More Which 3D House Printer To Buy?
