3D Printing Conference & Expo( Innovation, Modelling, Application & Implementation)

———————————————————————————————————————

3D Printing Conference is based on Medical related 3D printing, Engineering,  3D Imaging and future prospects.

The main theme of this conference is, “Novelties in Additive Manufacturing and Bioprinting”.

3D Printing Conference is based on Medical related 3D printing, Engineering, 3D Imaging and future prospects.

3D bio printing utilizes the layer-by-layer method to create tissue-like structures which get utilized in medical and tissue engineering fields. By the use of 3D printing, we can produce exoskeletons, windpipes, jawbone, bones, ears, blood vessels, vascular networks, tissues, eye-glasses, cell cultures, stem cells, and organs. Currently, bio printing can be used to print tissues and organs to help research of Drug discovery. In addition, it has begun the printing of scaffolds. These scaffolds can be used to regenerate joints and ligaments.

They have some FREE passes. If you are in area, or planing to visit.:)

Riboflavin is Better for 3D Printed Medical Implants

——————————————–

 

We know that material we are using for 3D printing is different what we use for eating or using for humans. Specially for making any uses for health reason we always think so much before using anything.Scientist form North Carolina State University have been doing research about those 3D printing materials  for decades. Search for non-toxic, light-sensitive 3D printing materials, biomedical researchers recently discovered that riboflavin does the job quite nicely.

Mushtari: A 3D Printed Wearable Skin from MIT Mediated Matter in collaboration with Stratasys

—————————————————————–

Professor Neri Oxman of MIT Media Lab revealed a 3D printed wearable at TED2015 in May 2015 in Vancouver.  The wearable is designed to host living matter and was called Mushtari, meaning giant.  Mushtari was 3D printed using a color multi-material 3D Printer developed by Stratasys. This is the world’s first wearable that combines multi-material additive manufacturing and synthetic biology.

photosynthesis to convert sunlight to sugar.  The compatible microbes consume the sugar to

Mushtari is based on synthetic biology.  It uses a symbiotic relationship between a photosynthetic microbe and compatible microbes.  The photosynthetic microbes use generate substances useful for the wearer such as pigments, food, fuel and scents. In future, the wearer could trigger the production of these substances.

 

According to Neri Oxman, “This is the first time that 3D printing technology has been used to produce a photosynthetic wearable piece with hollow internal channels designed to house microorganisms. Inspired by the human gastrointestinal tract, Mushtari hosts synthetic microorganisms, a co-culture of photosynthetic cyanobacteria and E. coli bacteria that can fluoresce bright colors in darkness and produce sugar or biofuels when exposed to the sun. Such functions will in the near future augment the wearer by scanning our skins, repairing damaged tissue and sustaining our bodies, an experiment that has never been attempted before.”

Organovo: 3d Printing Living Tissue

Organovo 3d Printing Living Tissue

According to the Organovo,” This is a medical research company headquartered in San Diego which designs and develops three-dimensional human tissue. The living 3D printed tissue can be used for testing drugs before giving the drugs to a real person.  Organovo uses a proprietary bioprinting platform called NovoGen for 3D printing tissue.

Pharmaceutical companies conventionally perform testing on animals or on cells in Petri-dishes.  Both methods of testing are very different from testing on a living person.  Therefore several clinical trials fail when tried on living person even if they were considered successful on animals or cells in petri-dish.  Organovo technology bridges this gap by providing 3D tissue models that are much closer to a living person.  Pharmaceutical companies can use the 3D tissues developed using this technology for testing.

In 2014 Organovo announced the commercial release of exVive3DTM Human Liver Tissue for preclinical drug discovery testing.  In April 2015, Organovo presented results of 3D printing in vitro 3D kidney tissue at the 2015 Experimental Biology conference in Boston.  In 2015 L’Oreal signed an agreement with Organovo to produce 3D printed skin for use in testing of cosmetics.  The long-term goal of Organovo’s 3D bioprinting technology is to be able to create organs for transplantation”.:)

3 D Printing and Face Implant

Biomedical devices.  According to the, “company Oxford Performance Materials (OPM) announced an addition to 3D printed body parts a 3D printed face.  This starts a new era in the standard of care for facial reconstruction.  Until now, a technology did not exist that could treat the highly complex anatomy of these kind of  cases”.

FDA-Approved 3D Printed Face Implant is a First
