Growing organs in a lab is no longer science fiction. Universities have already proven that you can grow tissue or blood vessels with 3D printers . One company has now taken it a step further, however, by combining the two.
As 3D printing becomes more popular, accessible, and advanced, researchers and hobbyists alike are using the technology to produce more and more sophisticated items.
We’ve already seen all kinds of 3D-printed items, from jewelry, to guitars , and even football cleats . Now, we might soon have an almost entirely 3D-printed car in the Urbee 2 . The hybrid car, created by engineer Jim Kor, is designed to be light, cheap, easy to reproduce and very efficient
The bad news: just as much of the world is starting to get excited about the prospects of 3D printing , science is moving on to the world of 4D. The good news: in the future, you might not have to assemble that Ikea chair yourself.
Over the last year, 3D printers have inspired a lot of futuristic ideas. One of the more lofty ideas was the creation of medicine via 3D printing .
As we keep saying, for 3D printing to make its way into the mainstream, science needs to give us materials that can do more than just be hardened plastic. Researchers at the University of Warwick have just taken a huge step in the right direction with the introduction of a 3D-printable electrically conductive plastic
Get ready for a new 3D Printing Meetup ! This new one will happen at La Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in the North of Paris on Tuesday, December 4. We are very glad to organize this event in such a great place dedicated to science and experimentations.
