3D Printing Review

A FEW MINUTES after the Carolina Panthers punched their ticket to Super Bowl 50 with a blowout win over the Arizona Cardinals, reporters asked stud linebacker Thomas Davis how his arm was feeling. Yeah, its broken, he replied. Hed run into Arizona tight end Daniel Fells, who jumped and kneed Davis in the right forearm. It hurt, he said, laughing, thats all I can tell you. That was two weeks ago. The Panthers need Davis in the Super Bowlthough hes in his 11th season, hes having perhaps his best year yet, and is an anchor in the teams stout defense.continue reading

It seems backwards, but engineers from Northwestern University have made 3D printing metal easier (and eventually cheaper) by adding extra production steps to the procedure. Laser sintering works by laying down a thin layer of metal powder and then hitting it with a strong enough laser to sinter the particles together. (Sintering sticks the grains together without getting the metal hot enough to melt it.) The rapid local heating and cooling required to build up 3D objects expands and cools the metal, and can result in stresses inside the resulting object. The Northwestern team still lays down layers of powder,continue reading

UNESCO turns to 3D printing to restore Lion of Al-lat monument destroyed by ISIS in Syria

Since ISIS campaign of terror and destruction throughout the middle east, a number of efforts have been made to digitally capture and even restore cultural landmarks and ancient monuments that have been damaged or desolated by the terrorist group.

Such efforts, initiated by groups like UNESCO, Project Mosul, and the Institute of Digital Archaeology (IDA), have often turned to 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies to help in the restoration of some of the worlds most ancient traces of civilization.

Famously, Syrias Arch of Palmyra, a Roman archway dating back to the 3rd century which was destroyed by ISIS in 2015, was replicated by the IDA and UNESCO using 3D scanning and printing technologies and was publicly displayed in London and New York to show that terror can not eradicate culture or history.

Another restoration project, however, led by UNESCO, has led to some controversy in Israel.

The project, launched in 2015, consisted of restoring the Lion of al-Lt, an ancient statue of a lion which stood at the temple of the pre-Islamic goddess al-Lt in Palmyra, Syria until June 2015, when it sustained serious damage at the hands of ISIS.

The massive statue, measuring 3.5 meters in height and weighing 15 tonnes, depicted a large lion standing over an antelope, which was meant to symbolize that the strong have a duty to protect the weak. Once the iconic sculpture was discovered by a UNESCO team, it was transported to the National Museum of Damascus for restoration.

In restoring the Lion of al-Lt, a team from Oxford-based IDA (supported by UNESCO funding) relied on laser projection equipment and large-scale 3D printing to reproduce parts of the statue that had been destroyed or damaged. In October, 2017, the restoration process was completed.

The restoration of the Lion of Al-lt is an important achievement with a symbolic dimension, said Hamed Al Hammami, Director of the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in the Arab States and UNESCO Representative to Lebanon and the Syrian Arab Republic. It is part of a broader project to protect the unique cultural heritage of Syria, which unfortunately remains at risk.

Largely, this project has been recognized as a positive initiative, aimed at preserving Syrias history from those who seek to eradicate it.

In Israel, however, at least one rabbi has spoken out against the UNESCO-led restoration on the grounds that it promotes idolatry.

Rabbi Daniel Assur, a member of Sanhedrin, has claimed that the 3D printing-based restoration of Syrias fallen monuments shows that the UN supports idol worship (you know, one of the ten commandments), and thus proves the UNs anti-Israel bias.

The entire mission of the organization is to blur the differences between the nations in order to bring them all under one roof and one authority in a New World Order, Rabbi Assur toldBreaking Israel News. The truth is, as the Bible says, there are 70 distinct nations. The UN believes they can create nations out of thin air. Once they do that, they can say that there are many gods, even ones you can create by 3D printing.

Because Israel stands as proof of what a nation is and the concept of one God, the UN has a vendetta against Israel and is irrationally biased against us, Rabbi Assur continued. They have a messianic vision of a unified government that will fix the world without God and without the Torah. This has always been the goal of idolatry, beginning with Egypt and continuing with the attempts of Rome and Greece to spread paganism across the world. Now we are seeing its modern manifestation.

While it is unclear whether others in Israel or elsewhere share Rabbi Assurs controversial opinion about UNESCOs restoration project (and other initiatives like it), it is certainly at odds with the general sentiment weve seen in response to the projects, which is enthusiastic about technology being used to capture, preserve, and restore historical artefacts from humanitys past, no matter the religion.

3D Bioprinting of Tissues and Organs:  Where Are We?

byWilliam J Cass, EsqMay 10, 20163D Printing3D Printing MaterialsMedical 3D Printing

Industrial 3D printing has been around since the 1980s and was initially known as rapid prototyping because of its most popular application making prototypes for manufacturing.  The term additive manufacturing includes such technologies as stereolithography, fused deposition modeling (FDM), laser sintering, and electron beam sintering.  Recent advances in additive manufacturing reveal that bioprinting, i.e., the additive manufacturing of tissues and organs, is about to open up a whole new realm of possibilities.  Though this technology has much in common with traditional additive manufacturing, and indeed adopts certain elements, there are a number of unique technical and legal challenges to implementing the use of bioprinted materials.

First, let us talk some basics.  As shown in Figure 1, in order for additive manufacturing of biomaterials to work, the supply, applicator, and support structure must be constructed so that the biomaterial remains viable before, during, and after the construction of the tissue and/or organ.  The biomaterial must also be able to thrive and grow in the environment it is intended for (after application).  The high temperatures associated with traditional FDM, for example, could never work because the biomaterial would be destroyed.  Further, something must hold the biomaterial together to shape it for its application, much like a support structure in traditional additive manufacturing.

For many applications, a suitable support structure, known as a scaffold, must be carefully constructed.  As shown in Figure 2, the scaffold holds the biomaterial in place and allows the living tissue to live and regenerate.  In addition, scaffold materials must have suitable strength, biocompatibility, and shaping characteristics.  Currently, the materials being used for scaffolds are selected either because of their compatibility with cell growth and function or because of their crosslinking or extrusion characteristics.  Polymers, such as alginate and fibrin hydrogel materials, have been used in cell-based direct biofabrication techniques in which cell-laden hydrogels are printed.  Common materials include synthetic or natural polymers and decellularized extracellular matrix (ECM).  Examples of naturally derived polymers include alginate, gelatin, collagen, chitosan, fibrin, and hyaluronic acid, often isolated from animal or human tissues (2).

Synthetic materials are also employed and include polyethylene glycol (PEG)(4), polycaprolactone (PCL)(5), polylactic acid (PLA)(6), polyglycolic acid (PGA), and poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA)(7).  The use of whole-organ decellularization to create a three-dimensional (3D) extracellular matrix (ECM) helps to preserve the native tissue architecture, including the vasculature(8).

The other challenge is creating equipment that can deliver the biomaterial onto or into the scaffold.  Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center has been a leader in the research in this field.  Wake Forest has received funding from theArmed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine, a federally funded effort to apply regenerative medicine to battlefield injuries.  The researchers have developed a custom-designed 3D printer and have printed ear, bone, and muscle structures.(9,10)These structures have been implanted in animals, matured into functional tissue and even developed a system of blood vessels.  The printer can fabricate stable, human-scale tissue of any shape.  The correct shape is achieved by converting clinical imaging data of an anatomical defect into a computer model to program control of the motions of the printer nozzles, which dispense the cells to discrete locations.  With further development, this technology could potentially be used to print living tissue and organ structures for surgical implantation.(11)

The system, known as the Integrated Tissue and Organ Printing System, was developed over a 10-year period.  The system deposits both biodegradable, plastic-like materials to form the tissue shape and water based gels that contain cells.  A major challenge of tissue structures is to ensure that the implemented structures live long enough to integrate with the body.  This was addressed by creating a hydrogel that holds the cells and a lattice structure of micro channels that allows nutrients and oxygen from the body to provide nutrients until the tissue regenerates its own system of blood vessels.(12)

The United States is not the only country pursuing this research.  For example, researchers at Pohang University of Science and Technology in South Korea have reported a computer-aided design and manufacturing system for multiple head 3D printing and have printed heterogeneous tissue models using two kinds of cell-laden hydrogel.(14)Researchers at the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Shanghai Tissue Engineering Key Laboratory, Shanghai 9thPeoples Hospital, have pursued cell printing of cartilage structures.  Recognizing that one of the most critical challenges was the damage to the cell structures during the printing process, this research focused on modifying the printing parameters to maintain cell viability.  First, chondrocytes (cartilage cell matrix) were obtained from donated excised microtia cartilage and fetal tissues, and cultured.  Next, the cultured chondrocytes were placed in a modified ink jet printer which had been sterilized.  The printing parameters were modified to reduce the stress on the chondrocytes.  The cells were then printed, and then assayed to measure their viability, morphology, and characteristic protein expression.  The cells were measured against a control group (which was not 3-D printed).  The results established that printing cartilage structures saw no distinctly negative effect on the chondrocytes.(15)

The actual use of such 3D printed biomaterials on human beings is not that far away, though the regulatory framework of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) presents additional challenges for tissues and organs as opposed to surgical implants which are made of existing approved and clinically accepted materials (such a titanium, steel, certain plastics, etc.).  A party seeking to obtain regulatory approval for a device constructed from existing approved materials can typically streamline the approval process through the Premarket Notification Procedures under 510K.  Biomaterials and/or organs, however, will need to proceed through the full approval process, meaning that there will have to be animal studies, clinical trials, an IRB (Independent Review Board), and proven results, prior to market approval, all of which is very expensive.

Currently, the FDA is working with the AM industry to develop new tools, standards, and approaches for the FDA to assess the safety, quality, efficacy, and performance of FDA-regulated 3D printed products.  In its Department of Health and Human Services Justification of Estimates for Appropriations Committees for the 2015 Fiscal Year, the FDA stated that it is currently identifying medical device 3D printing standardized terminology, regulatory concerns, and developing quality control tests.  The FDA further announced that it has identified how 3D printing techniques and processes affect the strength and durability of materials used in medical devices.

Europe has also approved the use of 3D printed materials as an implant.CEIT Biomedical Engineering, a Slovakia-based company, obtained EU approval for an implant constructed from a titanium alloy fabricated on an EOS laser metal sintered machine (see below, Figure 3).  The use of known materials, such as the titanium alloy, presents less of a challenge for FDA approval.

Hopefully, the FDA will be addressing bioprinted tissues and organs in a meaningful way to stream line the regulatory approval process.  As of today, we await the future!

What Are the Types of 3D Printing? Quick 3D Printing Slide Show

This entry was posted by Bill Decker on January 13, 2015 at 5:36 pm

There are multiple techniques that are used to produce 3D printed medical models for trial purposes. For example, there are multiple types of 3D printing:

This technique uses a UV laser light which focus on phot- reactive resin working in an additive manner to create a solid object.

This method uses a filament or plastic which is deposited one layer on top of the other to form 3D object.

Is similar to stereolithography but it allows for the use of powdered material. Some of the materials that could be used here are nylon, glass, ceramics, steel, silver, and aluminum.

Selective laser melting is similar to selective laser sintering, but the difference is that the powder is melted together, instead just combining the powder granules.

Here electronic beams are used instead of UV rays.

In this type of printing plastic, paper, or metal is glued together. After gluing, the material is cut by a laser or knife to create a shape.

3D Blockbusters: HP Ups 3D Printing Ante With New Low-Cost Color Model And Metals Functionality

HP CEO Dion Weisler Thursday told Wall Street analysts that the company is accelerating its 3D printing march with an industry first a new low-cost,  full-color model and a breakthrough metals manufacturing capability.

Weisler boasted that the new Multi JetFusion would be the one and only 3D printing technology in the industry that can produce manufacturing quality full-color parts.

The lower price point, meanwhile, will open new market segments essentially expanding the 3D printing market to a new class of products designers and creators, said Weisler.

The full cost color model is based on HPs highly regarded Multi Jet Fusion technology delivering to customers breakthrough speed, quality, and cost, said Weisler.

Speaking at HPs Palo Alto, Calif. headquarters, Weisler held up several full-color manufacturing parts including a multi-colored bracket that highlighted high-stress areas with different colors.

The designer can zoom in on high-stress areas and see where they might modify the design, Weisler said. Interesting shapes like this in full color are only able to be produced with 3D printing.

The metal printing capability is another blockbuster, and this pushes HP beyond the polymer plastics market. Now we are going to disrupt metals, said Weisler. Our 3D printing metals technology is unique and includes extensive HP intellectual property.

Both the full color, lower cost model and the metal capability will be brought to market in 2018, said Weisler.

HP is already producing metal parts in its labs, said Weisler, showing off a box full of small metal manufacturing parts. These are parts that are produced in the millions because of course where we are taking our technology is not just for small prototyping, he said. This is for mass manufacturing to disrupt a very large traditional industry.

The combination of plastics and metals is, in fact, aimed squarely at disrupting the $12 trillion production manufacturing market with lower cost and more efficient 3D mass production.

Calling the 3D printing offensive a massive opportunity, Weisler said the HP 3D drive is not a one or two year play, but a multi-year journey that should be a growth engine for this company for decades to come.
