Surgeons will soon have a powerful new tool for planning and practice with the creation of the first full-sized 3D bioprinted model of the human heart.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota are the first to 3D print microfluidic channels on a curved surface, providing the initial step for someday printing them directly on the skin for real-time sensing of bodily fluids. Credit: McAlpine Group, University of Minnesota.
An international team of scientists have discovered a new material that can be 3D printed to create tissue-like vascular structures.
A bionic hand can be made to measure in 10 hours and can grip using a moveable thumb. Designers and engineers from WMG, University of Warwick and UK industry, have been able to entirely 3D Print the device with embedded electrical circuitry to seamlessly connect sensors and actuators.
Sacrificial ink-writing technique allows 3D printing of large, vascularized human organ building blocks
