Wyss Institute applies “try before you buy” initiative to 3D printed heart valves

A team from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, Massachusetts, have created a 3D printing workflow to predict the performance of artificial heart valves. A kind of “try before your buy” approach, the researchers have created a software that simulates a valve’s reaction with a patient’s native tissue, and provides accurate […]

FDA awards $2.6M in grants for 3D bioprinting and biomedical research

The U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has awarded grants to five research institutes for the study and improvement of biomanufacturing, including 3D bioprinting. Scott Gottlieb, MD, FDA Commissioner, said, “Advanced manufacturing technologies, such as continuous manufacturing, hold great promise for improvements in the reliability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing for biological products.” “we awarded […]

Wyss Institute leverages 3D printing to study Earth’s “forgotten fauna”

A 3D printed claw developed at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University is giving biologists a tool for finally understanding soft creatures that live at the bottom of the sea. “The dream is to enclose delicate deep-sea animals, take 3D imagery that includes properties like hardness, 3D-print that animal at the surface, […]

Thanks to MIT and Harvard brains can now be 3D printed by the pixel

A collaboration between MIT’s Mediated Matter Lab and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University has yielded an image processing method that makes 3D printing patient-specific medical models a cinch. While accurate, and ready-sliced for 3D printing, manually processing MRI and CT scan data is a laborious process, typically done over the course […]

Harvard Forscher drucken Softroboter mit integrierten Sensoren

3d druck soft roboter 296x300 - Harvard Forscher drucken Softroboter mit integrierten Sensoren

Wissenschaftler der Harvard University in den USA haben Softroboter entwickelt, die Berührungen, Druck, Bewegung und Temperatur fühlen können. Forscher haben bislang bereits Softroboter, hergeleitet am Beispiel der Natur hergestellt, die krabbeln, schwimmen und heikle Objekte ergreifen können. Keine dieser Vorrichtungen war jedoch bis jetzt dazu in der Lage auf seine Umwelt zu reagieren. Integrierte Sensoren […]

Harvard 3D prints robots embedded with sensors that react to objects like humans

Researchers from Harvard University have developed a method for creating soft robots with embedded sensors capable of sensing movement, pressure, touch, and temperature.  Inspired by the human “somatosensory system”, that gives us our physical abilities, the joint project between the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering […]

3D printing news Sliced Xometry, OMNI3D, Harvard, Black Panther

How is 3D printing beating brain cancer? What happened to New Matter? A behind the scenes look at Black Panther and more of the latest 3D printing news from Harvard University, the Yas Marina Circuit, LUNAR, Carbon, Mimaki and Xometry. 3D printing applications from the awesome to the unusual GravityB 3D is a studio based in […]

oVert to scan over 20000 vertebrates for free download and 3D printing

The openVertebrate (oVert) project is scanning between 20,000 and 30,000 fluid-preserved vertebrate specimens from institutions across the US and making them freely available to 3D print on the MorphoSource platform, a platform hosted by Duke University. Funded by a US National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, oVert has brought together research institutions who will CT scan the specimens, […]

3D printed suckerfish grip could take explorers into The Great Unknown

Since August 5th 2012 the Mars Curiosity Rover has been live tweeting its movements from the surface of the red planet to almost 4 million followers all around the world. Back on Earth and 10,994 metres (36,070 ft) under the sea however, there is no such luxury of wireless communication. To date, only four planned missions […]

Harvard’s hybrid 3D printing method creates electronic second skin

The future of wearable technology envisions smart devices worn as close to the human skin as possible. Activated by “soft”, flexible electronics, this kind of second skin will enable seamless interaction between wearers and their technology, enhancing the human ability to make decisions and perform tasks. Using a hybrid 3D printing method, researchers at Harvard […]
