3D Printing in  Medical Applications

Three-dimensional (3D) printing is a rapid prototyping technology that has gained increasing recognition in many different fields. This technology has been around since the early 1980’s invented by Charles Hull who called it “stereolithogaphy” (1). 3D printing is an additive manufacturing process which fuses or deposits materials—such as plastic, metal, ceramics, powders, liquids, or even living cells—in layers to pro-duce a 3D object. This process is also referred to as rapid prototyping (RP), or solid …
