In this paper, learn how 3D printing technologies are transforming biomimicry research, design and materials – leading to important developments for medical science.
Take a look inside McGill University’s Laboratory for Advanced Materials and Bioinspiration in Montreal, Canada, where an affordable desktop printer from EnvisionTEC helped the team replicate nature’s own textiles and patterns to better understand designs that are resistant to puncture and more.
Their work was published in the March 2017 Acta Biomaterialia, and is just one piece of research that uses 3D printing to mimic nature’s own designs.
EnvisionTEC maintains a database of medical research performed with its 3D-Bioplotter at this link, with many of the cases relying on biomimicry.
