Two companies have collaborated to bring a new 3D printing technology and a new material to the commercial marketplace. ExOne Company (www.exone.com), which manufactures and sells 3D printing equipment, and 3D printing service bureau, ‘rapid prototype + manufacturing (rp+m)’, announced the result of their partnership to bring 3D printed tungsten to the medical imaging market via the M-Flex 3D Printing System.
“3D printed bonded tungsten is a great solution for radiation shielding because the M-Flex can create complex shapes for these applications that would be difficult to create with conventional methods of manufacturing,” said Rick Lucas, ExOne’s CTO in a release. “Our collaboration with rp+m demonstrates the power of ExOne’s strategy in engaging customers in the early stages of the materials development process, yielding direct applications in new markets.
The part of his windpipe that carries air to his left lung would suddenly collapse. Children die from tracheobronchomalacia, but I hoped that help could be found for these children.
Is not a recent case (may 2013) but anyway it is interesting. Again, I personally would not call "3D printer" this kind of professional machine using a laser. in 1:58 they show the process ant it seems an EOS P-100 machine. definitely not a 3d printer.

Solid Concepts manufactured three beautiful headpieces using 3D Printing for AVEDA Congress 2013
3D Printing gave us the opportunity to look at a whole different way of approaching the design. The [3D Printed] outcome is really what I was looking for: Refined, beautiful, elegant and very detailed. I can’t imagine how we would’ve gotten that amount of detail by hand, it just couldn’t exist.” – Ray Civello, CEO & President of AVEDA Canada

Rapid prototyping is a powerful tool, but only if it is used correctly. As with many technological processes, the possibility of things going awry is large.
Here are some of the more common mistakes people have encountered while using rapid prototyping to develop new parts.
Straight to the point paper. As you will see I participated. Like to see it printed.
Researchers have discovered that a naturally-occurring compound can be incorporated into three-dimensional (3-D) printing processes to create medical implants out of non-toxic polymers. The compound is riboflavin, which is better known as vitamin B2.
In this study, the suitability of a mixture containing riboflavin (vitamin B2) and triethanolamine (TEOHA) as a novel biocompatible photoinitiator for two-photon polymerization (2PP) processing was investigated.
Materials & methods: Polyethylene glycol diacrylate was crosslinked using Irgacure® 369, Irgacure 2959 or a riboflavin–TEOHA mixture; biocompatibility of the photopolymer extract solutions was subsequently assessed via endothelial cell proliferation assay, endothelial cell viability assay and single-cell gel electrophoresis (comet) assay. Use of a riboflavin–TEOHA mixture as a photoinitiator for 2PP processing of a tissue engineering scaffold and subsequent seeding of this scaffold with GM-7373 bovine aortic endothelial cells was also demonstrated.
Results: The riboflavin–TEOHA mixture was found to produce much more biocompatible scaffolds than those produced with Irgacure 369 or Irgacure 2959.
Conclusion: The results suggest that riboflavin is a promising component of photoinitiators for 2PP fabrication of tissue engineering scaffolds and other medically relevant structures (e.g., biomicroelectromechanical systems).

Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company Demonstrates Digital Production Innovations During Manufacturing Day Activities
3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is one of the integral technologies for Digital Tapestry. Already used to manufacture parts for the F-35 fighter plane, the company is moving it more generally into its product manufacturing and especially at the Space Systems Company, where it’s currently used for printing titanium parts
Additive manufacturing promises to revolutionize the way we build things. Using new technologies like 3D printing and laser melting, traditional manufacturing processes, like forging, casting and machining, are being turned upside down.
With additive manufacturing complexity is free. We can now make lighter-weight, geometrically-optimized, metal parts that offer the same functionality as their traditionally machined counterparts, with little to no material waste
Beginners class on Additive Manufacturing
OPM’s polymer-based cranial implants, made with additive manufacturing technology from EOS, offer improved patient outcomes with reduced surgical costs.
“EOS is clearly the leader for high-temperature industrial 3D printers,” says DeFelice. “We found their technology to be the only laser-sintering system in the world that can run high-temperature materials such as PEKK.” Since that selection, OPM has developed a long-term relationship with EOS. “They were with us when we explored this business opportunity, which ultimately led to the implementation of a P 800 system in our South Windsor, Connecticut facility around two years ago. We were a fairly early adopter of high-temperature laser fabrication, and in the context of the OsteoFab™ technology’s entire development cycle, we moved very quickly. EOS supported us throughout the process.”
Since 2000, DeFelice has built OPM’s business solely on the shoulders of PEKK. Aside from developing a variety of biomedical and industrial materials under the brand name OXPEKK®, OPM has produced a number of what he calls “bony void” replacements using their patented OsteoFabTM process, including cranial implants, mandibular and orbital augments, as well as spinal cages
A team of cardiovascular scientists has announced it will be able to 3D print a whole heart from the recipients' own cells within a decade
The Cardiovascular Innovation Institute is now developing bespoke 3D printers for the job with a team of engineers and vascular biologists -- "if you do not understand the biology, you solve only half the problem" explains Williams. Though for now those printers are focusing on replicating the parts, the plan is to print the whole in one go in just three hours, with a further week needed for it to mature outside of the body. Certain parts will need to be printed and assembled beforehand, including the valves and the biggest blood vessels. "Final construction will then be achieved by bioprinting and strategic placement of the valves and big vessels," says Williams
An introduction to the new technology that could revolutionize how science is done.
He says "With it, they can cut the cost by a factor of 10, or even 100 for research-grade equipment. Even in the classroom, we can do a $15,000 educational lab for $500.”

3D print in wood! Available for purchase at: https://www.inventables.com/technologies/wood-composite-filament-laywoo-d3
Nice idea. Using PLA and wood looks like highly recyclable and biodegradable.
Laywoo-D3 is a 3D printer filament that is a mixture of 40% wood with a polymer binder. This material can be printed on most 3D printers that use ABS or PLA filament. The filament behaves similar to PLA and can be printed at temperature from 175C to 250C. The material color is affected by the temperature, so tree ring like affects can be simulated by adjusting the temperature during printing.
The material smells and behaves just like wood. Finished prints can be cut, sanded and painted like standard wood products.
Faster, cheaper, kit on the way for service providers
The growth of 3-D printers is projected to be 75 percent in the coming year, and 200 percent in 2015. Gartner suggests that “the consumer market hype has made organizations aware of the fact 3-D printing is a real, viable and cost-effective means to reduce costs through improved designs, streamlined prototyping and short-run manufacturing.”
I must admit, my cloud data is a flucking mess... I've photos and docs all over the place, upon thinking about this i stopped and spent 45 minutes cleaning it all up. Google, Apple, Microsoft, Fakebook, Dropbox, and others are all competiting to take over everything. Ive my email with Gmail but my hardware is Apple, they no longer want to play nice. What to do, what to do... Let's hope 2014 has a plan ;-)
Long and comprehensive article. Full of accurate remarks and data. Among all of them I personally pick this one:“it’s just choosing the proper process for every project”
Students to test one-of-a-kind, 3D-printed rocket engine
To build the engine, students used a proprietary design that they developed. The engine was primarily financed by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. and was printed on Co-Cr allow on an EOS Laser sintering Machine by Illinois-based GPI Prototype and Manufacturing Services on a EOS M Machine.
This is the first time a university has produced a 3D-printed liquid fueled metal rocket engine, according to the students, who are members of the UC San Diego chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space.
Have a look at the first fire test http://youtu.be/k15hnT65IfM
Researchers at NC State have developed a way to print liquid metals into 3D structures at room temperature. The structures are stabilized by a thin oxide 'skin.
Well, its a bit limited, but the video is very funny. worth seeing and inspiring.
The article explaining it is http://www.nanowerk.com/spotlight/spotid=32574.php
It's affordable, small, lightweight, and unique. It's a 3D printer in a class all its own!
Very interesting ultra-low cost.
