Facial replacement via 3D printing

Amazing innovative technology was created to rebuild the human face with 3D printing in silicone. English chemist Frederick Kipping did his pioneering work on the study of the organic compounds of silicon which led to synthetic rubber and silicone-based lubricants used to enhance the decollete of dancers, seal fish tanks and now rebuild the human face. Industrial designer Tom Fripp was contacted by researchers at the University of Sheffield and asked if it would be possible to print struct...

A 3-D Printer that can Sculpt Using Anything From Silicone to Nutella

Edible materials can make experimenting with 3-D printing more fun for kids. The latest technology from Ontario-based Structur3D Printing lets printers work with a wide variety of gel materials to produce everything from silicone-based orthotic shoe inserts to custom cake toppers printed from icing sugar. The technology of 3D printing machinery that carves or sculpts 3D objects from a block of material using a computer generated design has been around for years. Although fast and accurate,...
