Where do you think the future of medicine will be in the next decade? With diseases and illnesses advancing, technology has been improving and advanced innovative ways have been surfacing. Something that has modernized our way of life without even realizing it is a printer. Do you ever foresee that printers could other than put ink on a piece of paper? Three-dimensional printing is revolutionizing our modern day lives in our own selves as we speak. Although there are several types of 3D printing, one version that has caught the public’s attention is 3D medical printing, or also known as bio printing. This emerging technology will enable future 3D printers to produce synthetic human tissue, and eventually human organs and transform how doctors and patients view medicine.
The use of 3D Printing dates back to 1980’s when Charles Hull developed stereolithography (3D Printing). Hull received a BS in engineering and physics from the University of Colorado in 1961. He was successful in integrating the computer for developing parts based on digital information. 3D printing is a printing process that allows digital data to create 3D objects. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process, laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created creates an object. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object (“What Is 3D Printing?). NASA launched a
