Carlos Garcia Pando's curator insight, November 24, 2013 7:13 AM

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

Which of these would you call a "3dprinter"?

Which of these would you call a "3dprinter"? | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Australian company Fastbrick Robotics is developing a brick-laying 3D printer robot capable of laying up to 1,000 bricks in an hour. The robot, the Hadrian X, is expected to hit the Australian market within the next year.
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:
Which of these would you call a “3D printer”?

*  Nr. 1: It is able to read both digital and paper plans, even hand-sketched incomplete drawings and annotations, out of scale or with bad perspectives, thanks to its multiplatform “analog” and “bio-integrated” intelligence. It has self-correction and auto-adaptive and flexible programming features. It is able to carry its own bricks to the working place or buying more if necessary.
*  Nr. 2: It is able to read purpose-made machine code and lay bricks very accurately.
*  Nr. 3: Pumps concrete to the exact point guided by a program which resides in a co-worker (a human) with most of the abilities described in Nr. 1. With the right kind of concrete and time it can create complex 3d structures if needed, or just lay concrete on flat surfaces, on layer at a time.
*  Nr. 4: Using a plasma beam and a metal wire feed it is able to create pure 3-Dimensional structures around an object, following true three-dimensional trajectories onto complex surfaces and curvatures, angles, cavities, etc., with about ten to twenty simultaneously interpolated axes, with the same extra features of Nr.1.

The answer: Nr. 2 is called a “3dprinter”. Why?

It’s just a specialized robot to replace humans in hard tasks, but if you call it a “3dprinter” you get attention from the news, public, investors, etc. It’s a big and accurate one, mounted on a truck. And it is able of laying -I would say layering, as in the additive manufacturing- a huge amount of bricks per hour. This is good. Next version will have tools to cut and grind bricks to different sizes according to a CAD file. It may also pump mortar in the required places, although the article says nothing.

The robotic achievement here is amazing enough to be front page in itself, but Robotics is not the buzz word any more. Now you have to call it a 3D-printer.

Stratasys and 3DSystems: HP is not close to market yet. | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it

An industry analyst at Canalys confirms that HP will now have a cost and speed lead over the competition, but the big hiccup is that the HP printers offer a speed and cost supportive of production runs for the products that require monochrome thermoplastic only.  So all the hoopla on cost and performance was for printers that only solve limited problems and is far from fully functional.

FDA Clearance for joimax EndoLIF On-Cage: 3D-Printed Fusion Implant

FDA Clearance for joimax EndoLIF On-Cage: 3D-Printed Fusion Implant | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Irvine, California – July 13, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) – The German company joimax®, developer of technologies and training methods for minimally invasive endoscopic spinal surgery, today announced it received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its Endoscopic Lumbar Interbody Fusion, or EndoLIF® On-Cage.

The EndoLIF On-Cage consists of titanium alloy, produced with Electron Beam Melt (EBM) technology. The cage displays a porous surface with diamond cell structure, providing an optimal base for cell proliferation and bone growth. Two large openings, which may be filled with autogenous bone, support the creation of a straight column for fusion.

Two German spine specialists, have already performed more than 200 out of 600 EndoLIF procedures in Europe.

Will the hype ever end? "This 3D Printer Can Detect Infectious Diseases"

Will the hype ever end? "This 3D Printer Can Detect Infectious Diseases" | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
COLLEGE STATION, Texas, July 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This 3D Printer Can Detect Infectious Diseases.
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:
Just put a an adaptor and a bit of software.
Of course is the already proved process which does the trick, the chemical and biological science underneath.
Don't they have engineers at the College Station?
But apparently someone realized there are cheap, programmable cartesian robots with heaters to do this task. But it's not thanks to this, no; now we have a "3dprinter that detects infectious diseases and amplifies DNA".
Isn't it amazing how just saying "3dprint" everything becomes a miracle?

They could have hacked a 3D coordinate measuring machine, a CMM, which is basically the same thing, only more expensive. But the headline would not be as attractive as this one.

3D printed cast mends bones and plays music | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:
A bit of too expensive development to increase hype.

If this is an exercise of just putting as many things together as you can, I believe there is a bottle opener missing. It should have an integrated counter (possible with the integrated arduino) so your doctor also knows about your drinking habits and doses. Furthermore, open a twitter account for it so it gets social and speaks with other casts too, reporting how boring or how active is its owner, what brand of bear he/she prefers, etc.

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

We usually avoid all types of vibration in our manufacturing systems, either traditional subtractive (CNC turning, milling, EDM, etc.) or Additive, to improve the surface quality and dimensional accuracy of the parts.

As opposite to this, spatial sound designer Ricky van Broekhoven and designer Olivier van Herpt have teamed up to use sound waves, a common form of vibration, to create textures in objects during the manufacturing process.
