3D Printed Heart Marks a Breakthrough in Bioprinting

In a landmark achievement, Tel Aviv University have 3D printed a small heart using human tissue. While the organ itself is smaller than one would need in a transplant, it is a massive step forward for bioprinting. The 3D printed heart is the most complex of its kind, containing vessels, collagen and intricate tissue layers. The […]

Infrared Cooking Allows Multi-Material Food Printing

While existing methods of food printing are good for certain foods, they have massive limitations. One of the reasons so many food printers rely on purees, simple/easily prepared sweets and single material processes is the lack of ability to prepare different materials under the same device while distributing temperature properly. Now, Columbia University researchers may […]

Open Press Project: Print Your Own Printing Press

3D printing has been present in the art world in many forms, from renovating sculptures to pottery. It also allows for the reproducing art in various forms, recreating pre-existing designs and paintings. However, the Open Press Project is taking a different approach by bringing democratising vintage art reproduction devices themselves. The project wants users to […]

Aguahoja: MIT Lab Prints Water-based Biopolymer Construct

Sustainable materials development is a major line of research within the additive manufacturing industry. While 3D printing uses many materials, the most prominent ones (i.e. thermoplastics) are quite environmentally damaging. To curb this problem, MIT’s Mediated Matter lab may have found a possible solution. Their Aguahoja project allows for the printing sustainable, water-based biopolymer composites and structures. […]
