We are familiar with 3D printing, commonly used in manufacturing and now used in the food industry to create unique shapes and designs.

Food 3D printing typically involves using edible materials, such as chocolate or dough, to create complicated designs or shapes that would be difficult to achieve by hand. While it is possible to 3D print desserts like cheesecake, the technology is still relatively new and not yet widely available for home use.
It is important to ensure that the materials used are food-grade, safe for consumption and that the 3D printer is kept clean and free from contamination.

In general, 3D printing is an exciting technology for the food industry.

Possibilities with 3D Printing for internal tissue repair

Posted on


3D printing technology has been used in surgery and repairing damaged tissue inside the body, which is impossible.

Repairing tissue damage from the inside of the body would require a printer capable of printing at a microscopic level, with a resolution much finer than what is currently possible with 3D printing. Additionally, the printer must work within the human body’s complex environment, navigating around organs and tissues without causing further damage.

3D Printing technology progressed to develop a new type of bioprinting, which involves printing living cells and tissues but is still experimental. While 3D printing for various medical applications, including tissue repair, using it to repair tissue damage from the inside of the body. It is not currently achievable with current technology other than 3D printing. It has not yet been used for widespread clinical applications.
