According to UC Berkeley professor of mechanical engineering and leader of the team Boris Rubinsky,” the 3D printing of biomaterials like organs and food a lot more viable. The problem with 3D bioprinting is that it is a very slow process, so you can’t print anything big because the biological materials will deteriorate by the time you finish. They designed the device. One of our innovations is that we freeze the material as it is being printed so that the biological material is preserved, and we can control the freezing rate”.

The 3D printer uses rays of light to make reusable

According to assistant professor of mechanical engineering at UC Berkeley Hayden Taylor, “I think this is a route to being able to mass-customize objects even more, whether they are prosthetics or running shoes,
The fact that you could take a metallic component or something from another manufacturing process and add on customizable geometry, I think that may change the way products are designed”.

According to a graduate student Hossein Heidari,“Our technique generates almost no material waste and the uncured material is 100 percent reusable”.
