The first part of the 21st Century has been one of many technological advances in the field of medicine. From mapping the genetic code that makes us what we are, to “clot-busters” that reduce the number of deaths from heart attacks, newly developed and innovative procedures and medicines have made life better for all humanity.
The broad-based field of information technology (IT) has made patient care and the routine office visit a thing of the past. The IT field has streamlined patient record keeping, from the physicians office to the most advanced hospital. Where Read the rest of this entry »
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a cost-effective and simpler process to build objects of various shapes and sizes from 3D model software. A 3D materials printer machine reads the transferred data of dimensions and colors from a computer-generated model and lays down thin successive layers of sheet material, powder or liquid in a series of thin, horizontal cross sections corresponding to the virtual model’s cross sections until the formation of the object is complete.

Space is a vast, wondrous and complicated frontier that harbors many discoveries for humanity to uncover. Throughout recent years the human race, through curiosity and human ingenuity, has only just begun to understand this mysterious and compelling place. By advancing technology and increasing our knowledge of space, people very well may be living on other planets sooner than expected.
3D printing, although in its infancy, has proven to be a promising technology. It has uses in toy making, medical science, model creation and more. In the near future scientists are Read the rest of this entry »
3D printing has many amazing applications that have already proved very useful, despite having only been around for a short amount of time. This form of manufacturing and design is a new frontier filled with exciting possibilities and applications – many of which are futuristic, such as building a full-sized house in less than a day.
By enlarging the 3D printer and making use of technologies that have yet to be invented, engineers estimate that 3D printing technology would be able to construct a 2,500 square foot home in less Read the rest of this entry »
Three dimensional printing in the medical field could revolutionize transplant possibilities. Not only will bone replacements be able to print using various polymers but also more complicated parts, such as the various vital organs. The process of making a replacement part can take from minutes to hours, depending on the complexity of the part. This is a great advancement, considering the time it has taken to make these parts traditionally.
This cutting-edge technology is spreading to University institutions and Health institutions all over the world, including countries like Japan and Italy. Aside from the speed Read the rest of this entry »
