3D printing has demonstrated huge potential for the future of medicine in the previous years, and its development is unstoppable. Just look at the impressive list of 3D printed healthcare materials and medical equipment below!

How does 3D printing in medicine work?

3D printing in medicine is part of the innovative process called additive manufacturing, which means producing three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. How the technology works, we explained the technology in our article on bioprinting here.

As technology evolves, researchers work on various solutions. For example, engineers from the University of Buffalo have created a novel technology speeding up the printing process itself. What’s remarkable about this particular hydrogen-based technology is that it’s way faster than previous 3D printing methods. Like,...
