New 3D Printing Method Focuses on Biocompatible Devices

Posted Date 02/27/18

A new 3D printing method that utilizes hair-thin optic fibers has staked a claim in the area of biocompatible devices that could repair damaged tissue. Devised by researchers from Switzerland, the method has been used to create nanostructures that the researchers say they could use to see how cells interact with microstructures in animal models, paving the way for 3D printing microstructures for the human body, too.

What’s more, however, the method, which involves dipping the optic fiber into a photopolymer and then illuminating it with a certain color of light so it can solidify into the desired structure, can be used with commercial 3D printers, to produce finer, intricate details on larger items.
