The Advances In 3D Printing

The world of 3D printing has been making a number of advances in a lot of areas one of the biggest of these is in the medical community.  With each day that passes a new advancement is made that helps to further the need and usefulness of the 3D printer. The medical community has been the biggest benefactor that has enjoyed all that can come from the world of 3D printing. But the question is what are the true benefits that can come from this advancement in the medical community, the following are a few of the things that 3D printing and Research chemicals are doing to make the world a better place.

Organs have been seeing the first few signs of success with some very basic items having been successfully printed. Things like liver cells and small pieces of a heart have been able to be created and have proven to be functional. While it is still a ways to go before the actual full sized organs will be created, with this step the process gets a little closer and a little more realistic on a daily basis. Stem cells are the next thing that should be talked about in terms of creating with a 3D printer.

The creation of stem cells has been a hot topic for a number of years and people on both sides of the debate have weighed in on it. The fact that these cells have the power to regenerate can be created using a 3D printer, is in itself an amazing task. This went from being a long distance dream to being something that was actually doable within a few years of trying to perfect it. After skin cells, the next big innovation in 3D printing is that of skin.

The ability to take and create skin grafts has been around for the last several years and just recently has been perfected a lot better than in years past. Victims of skin cancer or severe burns now have hope that new technology will allow them the chance to have skin that had been damaged to be repaired and they will have the chance to live a somewhat normal life.

Bones have been the biggest advancement that has been made in the world of 3D printing. What used to lead to extensive surgeries and complicated procedures can now be solved in a lot easier of a manner and help victims of injuries heal and get back on with their life sooner than they might have otherwise been able to do.

As you can see the world of 3D printing has been making a lot of advancements and in the world of technology, it is one of the leading things that are being researched on a regular basis. As time goes on, the advancements will get more advanced and the technology will allow for more medical procedures to be performed and people to actually be able to live a full and productive life. All of this thanks to 3D printing.
