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.:)

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.”
