Scientists are exploring how special 3D printers can be utilized for making 3D prosthetic body parts. But before programming a machine to build a body part, scientists need to figure out how to create it themselves.
In numerous labs, bladders, blood vessels, and many other anatomical parts have been successfully implanted into patients.
With this, you may ask 3D2GO experts. Is there anything that 3D printers can’t print?
You read that right. And by everything, we mean anything under the sun. Advancements in 3D printing have skyrocketed in recent years, namely the 3D technology for medical applications.
We don’t mean creating a mini you with a 3D printer. Although it’s similar to going from the top of your head down to your feet, it’s not a replica of you. Bioprinting is a whole different aspect as it produces functional human organs.
Bioprinting is poised to push the boundaries further with the ability to print the following:
There’s still so much more to be done and improved in 3D printing in medical field. Some body parts may already be 3D printed and fully functional. But there are also some others that still need further studies and improvement.
