Medicine. Medical science and research is another sector that is benefiting from 3D printing technology. Layers of living cells can now be deposited onto a gel medium and slowly built up to form 3D structures. This bio-printing technology can potentially have significant applications in the area of tissue engineering to potentially replicate human tissues, organs, blood vessels, and can help many patients who are waiting for organ donation or eliminate such needs altogether. Bio printing can also be used to print artificial limbs and can customize it to individual patients. It is projected that by 2020 bio-printing can be used to produce functional human limbs and tissues. … [Read more...] about Could Star Trek’s Replicator Become a Reality with 3D Printing Technology?

The potential for customized medical devices are obvious – they can be made to exacting tolerances to match the exact need in the person who requires the device. But perhaps just as intriguing is the fact that plans for these items may rapidly become widely available, and outside the control of the traditional “rights” owner. Similarly, the potential for open source medical device manufacturing becomes real, as doctors and researchers can collaborate on the creation of devices across borders, and with regulators unable to track it all through “normal” means. What happens when a human organ can be assembled on a 3D printer? Moreover, advances in printed electronics are making similar advances right now, and the potential to combine them will likely be real far sooner than people realize. How does this all fit into a regulatory scheme where companies and academia are presumed to be the only sources of biomedical … [Read more...] about The Perils and Promise of 3D Printing: Are DIY Life Sciences in Your Future?

Texas based company ‘Defence Distributed’ had made available designs for a 3D printed handgun called the Liberator in 2013. The Obama administration had ordered the company to take down the blue prints that year which led the Cody Wilson, founder of the Company to sue the government. However, the company has now reached a settlement with the present Trump administration for public release of the blueprints. … [Read more...] about US Court Prevents Release Of 3D Gun Printing Blueprints Which Enable Production Of Undetectable Firearms[Read Order]
People can use the blueprints to manufacture a plastic gun using a 3D printer. But gun industry experts have expressed doubt that criminals would go to the trouble, since the printers needed to make the guns are very expensive, the guns themselves tend to disintegrate quickly and traditional firearms are easy to come by. … [Read more...] about American judge blocks release of how-to guide to 3D-printed guns
