In this quick round up here are a few articles to sum up the world of 3D Printing at the moment, we’ve scanned the pages of 3ders.org, a useful website that provides interesting news about 3D printing technology and products.
Made In Space successfully 3D prints first-ever extended structures in space-like environment
The Technology Demonstration Mission (TDM) project Archinaut, which is intended to 3D print complex hardware and supersized structures in space, was successfully tested in a simulated outer space environment.
‘Droplet-based 3D printing’ lets Oxford researchers create high-res living tissue structures
Researchers at the University of Oxford have found a new way to 3D print living structures from lab-grown cells. The structures could be used as human tissue models, removing the need for animal testing.
New Zealand researchers bioprinting 3D breast cancer tumours to explore different treatments
New Zealand scientists are using an additive manufacturing system to essentially construct a tumour-like structure made from cancer cells. While the research is still in its early stages, one of the main goals of the project is to enable patient-specific cancer treatments.
