The concept of three-dimensional became amusing because of its visual value. but the use of three dimensions is much more than sheer entertainment purposes. Medicine is making the most of this technology by using it to produce medical equipment. The three-dimensional printing method is a way of manufacture where the objects are created by depositing or fusing materials. The materials like metal, plastic, powders, ceramics, liquids, as well as living cells are put together in layers in order to produce a 3D object. The process of manufacture is also known as rapid prototyping (RP), solid free-form technology (SFF), or additive manufacturing (AM). Certain 3D printers are quite close to the usual inkjet printers, only the end result differs.
3D printing includes around two dozen different processes. These processes vary on the basis of speeds, resolutions, materials, and printer technologies. The advanced technology is able to print in almost any shape imagined by a human through a computer-aided design (CAD) file.
This process of printing is considered to be useful in producing surgical or dental fixtures. but it has the ability to do much more. A company called Organovo uses the technique of 3D printing to fabricate human living tissue. Experts believe that the significance of 3D printing in medicine will only rise in the future. The major benefits of this process are that a person attains a customized product in terms of his bodily requirements, which is not accurately possible in regular manufacturing. it is also extremely cost effective in comparison to other medical methods.
in 2011, Kaiba Gionfriddo was born prematurely and within 8 months of his birth, the lung developments were a matter of concern. After six weeks of the diagnosis of this problem, Kaiba was unable to breathe and turned blue. This was a result of tracheobronchomalacia, which meant that the windpipe collapsed due to its weakness. He was given a bioresorable device produced through 3D printing which immediately helped him breathe.
