Stratasys New System, BioMimics, Creates Life-Like Human Organs

There is a new system that the 3D printing giant Stratasys has released. It is the BioMimics and it will help the medical field.

The BioMimics is a system where users can 3D print highly precise medical models that are printed from different materials. It will positively affect medical students, especially surgeons, who are still studying and new to people’s organs. It will also apply to training and device testing.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Produces World’s Smallest Fidget Spinner

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is not a toy factory but they have made a fidget spinner. However, it is not your typical fidget spinner. It is the smallest in the world.

They usually print microfluidic, micromechanical, and other micro-scale scientific devices, but they decided to go with fidget spinner this time just to engage young people. They printed a micro fidget spinner that cannot be seen without microscope so it also cannot be used as the usual.

Spanish Researchers Use 3D Printing To Create Protective Layer That Improves Radiotherapy

Some researchers in Spain have developed a protective skin layer that will improve the radiotherapy treatment of skin cancer patients.

The team of researchers in Rovira I Virgili University, the IISPV Institute and the Sant Joan de Reus Hospital said the 3D printed material will protect the healthy skin cells from the therapy. Usually, with radiotherapy almost all cells are affected, whether they are cancerous or not. With this, cancer patients need not worry about it.
