New 3D Printing Process for Bioceramics Presented by Multistation

High-performance ceramics are seen as the next frontier for industrial rapid prototyping, some manufacturing and also, as we have begun to see recently, for biofabrication and 3D bioprinting. Biocerawax, a new AM process which is being presented by French 3D printer distributor Multistation, focuses on this latest aspect by introducing a new method for low-cost, bioceramic 3D printing based on Solidscape’s DoD (Drop on Demand) high-res, wax-based AM process.

Researchers Develop Dual Syringe 3D Printer Head for Bioprinting Polymers

LIFIA, a research centre of the National University of La Plata in Argentina, has created a 3D printer head that can control two syringes simultaneously, allowing doctors to print biopolymers with specific geometric forms and combine them in novel ways. Developed in conjunction with Dr. Guillermo R. Castro of CONICET and the Center for Research and Development in Industrial Fermentation (CINDEFI), the project is the first of its kind, and has won a contest organized by the Ministry of Science and Technology of Argentina (MinCyT), from which it received financial assistance to be developed.

Startup Pembient Uses 3D Bioprinting to Make Rhino Ivory Without Killing Rhinos

When talking about 3D bioprinting, images of laboratories where blood vessels, human bones and even organs are being grown in futuristic machines are almost immediately conjured up. But one San Francisco-based startup called Pembientis taking this groundbreaking technology into a different, but equally important, direction.
