This 3D Printing Machine Can Print Organs In Matter Of Seconds

The new 3D printing technique has a wide range of applications. The experts said that it could be used to create human organs, tissues, and mouthguards

The usual way of 3D printing an object is to squeezing material out layer by layer but now, some scientists claimed that they have found a new method to print out the whole object in a short time.

According to the EPFL News report, the method in question is based on tomography principles, a technique using ultrasound and x-rays to display a representation of a cross-section through a solid object.

What will happen with this new 3D printing method is to use a kind of resin that is sensitive to light. The resin will be illuminated from multiple angles and light will help to solidify the material. So the object will be formed in one go, rather than be created layer by layer.

According to Paul Delrot, Readily3D’s CTO, the company in charge of setting up and developing a system using this method, the key to this technique is light. After the process of polymerization, the liquid is hardened by lasers. Where the beams are aimed at, the dose and the angles are calculated based on the project.

The new 3D printing technique has a wide range of applications, including in the medical field. The experts behind this invention said that it could be used to create human organs, tissues, and mouthguards. The best part is, the whole process can happen inside an air-tight and sealed container to avoid contamination.

For now, the 3D printing system can create objects measuring two centimeters with an 80-micrometer precision

For now, the 3D printing system can create objects measuring two centimeters with an 80-micrometer precision. The team believes that they can increase that figure to 15 centimeters in the future.
