3D printing

With increased medical precision, speed of service and reduced cost, 3D printing presents a unique opportunity to transform traditional healthcare and its delivery. We give key insights on an array of topics that includes 3D printing of implants and prosthetics, anatomical modeling for surgical planning and the advances of bioprinting of tissue, vessels and organs.

Engineers use Frontera supercomputer to develop physics-informed neural networks for additive manufacturing.

Turning up the heat on 3D printing inks

Turning up the heat on 3D printing inks

A process that uses heat to change the arrangement of molecular rings on a chemical chain creates 3D-printable gels that can fold, roll, or just hold their shape.

Controlling the performance of 3D printed implants

Controlling the performance of 3D printed implants

In order to quickly customize implants with complex structures, scientists use 3D printing technology to prepare Ti-Mo alloy implants, and then adjust the microstructure and performance through subsequent heat treatment.
