Imagine 3D printed full color artificial teeth for permanent use. Why not? This question we asked ourselves two years ago. And our scientific curiosity resulted in first multi material and -color 3D jetted tooth model.
Driving vision is to bring dentistry on a new level of multi-material and colourful 3D printing.
This presentation will provide some insights on the unique jetting possibilities of biocompatible dental resins in combination with 3D workflow software.

Partnership for bio-printing of hair, signed by Poietis and L’Oreal. L’Oreal has been committed to tissue engineering for almost 30 years and holds unique knowledge and expertise in the field of bio-printing of hair. With this exclusive research partnership, L’Oreal and Poietis are giving themselves the means to pursue a new scientific challenge: bio-printing a hair follicle, the small organ that produces hair, using a bio-printer.

US Researchers Develop Biomaterial that Could Be used to Print Load-Bearing Body Parts such as Knee Cartilage

Printing replacement body parts may sound like something out of a sci-fi novel, but since 3D printing was introduced in the 1980s, scientists have been aspiring to make this a reality. Now, a team from Texas in the US has developed a super tough biomaterial that could be used to print load-bearing body parts such as knee cartilage.

The Texas team 3D printed a meniscus out of an alginate-containing hydrogel Continue reading “US Researchers Develop Biomaterial that Could Be used to Print Load-Bearing Body Parts such as Knee Cartilage”
