Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Institute of Engineering in Medicine have developed a spinal cord implant that could potentially revolutionise the way we repair nerve tissue. The implant is a 2mm replica spinal cord with a scaffolding that contains neural stem cells. Researchers recently tested it, showing improvements in regeneration in rats. […]
With CES 2019 drawn to a close, we can look back at all the best stories from the event. The 3D printing industry always has a few tricks up its sleeves and this year was no exception. From printed batteries to new scanning techniques, there were many valuable takeaways, showcasing a fresh and vibrant industry. So […]
Medical innovations due to 3D printing are booming these days, with all sorts of new devices improving patient-care. While most of these new applications are based in bioprinting, a lot are simpler medical devices like implants. Today’s story fits more with the latter category and, while simple, it is a brilliant device. Steven Hetts, interventional radiologist […]
With the rise of large format 3D printing over the past few years, commercial uses are diversifying every day. Larger prints are making their way into manufacturing, construction and so many more industries. However, Tractus3D is highlighting another use for large format additive manufacturing: signage, retail and displays for everyday stores, businesses and exhibitions. Their machines […]

Outsourcing your prototypes can sometimes seem like an unwelcome expense. If your company’s resources are already stretched by the costs of staffing, development and marketing, the prospect of paying another company to create your prototype is not always appealing. But ordering a professionally made prototype doesn’t have to break the bank. Moreover, by selecting an […]
Vermont-based Massive Dimension specialise in all things under the large-format 3D printing banner. The technology and pellet provider just launched a game-changing extruder for these mammoth machines. This comes at a crucial time, with massive shifts in architectural and large-scale 3D printing so the company is surely looking to capitalise on these bigger projects. The […]
