How 3D Printing Could End Hearing Loss

One of the challenges in covering the continually evolving field of 3D printing is that while the applications can seem endless, the final benefit is usually the same – saving time and cutting costs.

This time, however, the primary takeaway is not only unique but potentially life-changing.

First, yes, there is an academic journal entitled 3D Printing in Medicine, and...

3D Printer Could be 10X Faster

A team of MIT engineers recently announced that they'd developed a desktop 3-D printer which could be ten times faster than models currently available. This speed increase translates to part production potentially going from hours to minutes.

The team identified three factors limiting the speed of current printers:

  • How quickly it can move its printhead.
  • The...
