This week we have seen some very interesting 3D printing articles about the advances the technology is making in the medical arena. Social media has really been buzzing about this recent development: 3D-printed membrane mimics movements of living tissue. As always, this technology is ever-evolving and keeping us all on our toes!
For our friends and colleagues in Hawaii, don’t forget to register for the upcoming Hawaii STEM Conference that takes place April 19th & 20th on Maui.
As always, if there is a news article that you would like to share with the community, please leave it as a comment on this blog post. Thank you!
