3D Printed Jaw for Sea Turtle

A new 3D printed titanium jaw.

After this sea turtle was wounded by a boat propeller it was brought to the Dalyan Iztuzu Pamukkale University (PAU), Sea Turtle Research, Rescue and Rehabilitation Center. It was then that the PAU volunteers reached out to BTech to explore the possibility of 3D printing a custom titanium beak for the poor creature. Together with veterinarians and surgeons, the team designed a replica of the turtle’s beak. Recreating the powerful upper and lower jaws of the 45-kg turtle in Materialise’s 3-matic software was no easy process, with BTech relying on finite element and movement analysis to ensure a proper design.

3D Printed Food in Project EDIBLE GROWTH

Would you 3D-print your own personalized food?

We live in an era where food is not only grown or bred anymore, but manufactured in a laboratory setting or build with a 3D printer. These technologies influence supply chains, eating habits, preparation methods and introduce entirely new food products to the market. Edible growth is an example of a future food product that forms a bridge between new technologies and authentic practises of growing and breeding food. Multiple layers containing seeds, spores and yeast are printed according to a personalized 3D file.

Razor: UVA’s 3D printed drone with android autopilot

At the University of Virginia, engineers are printing airplanes.

Three-dimensional printing is the production, or “printing,” of actual objects, such as toys or parts for devices, by using a machine that traces out layers of melted plastic in specific shapes until it builds a piece to the exact specifications of a computer-aided drawing produced by a designer.

With the increased availability of user-friendly computer programs and 3D printers, that designer can be anybody. Eventually, almost any object, or parts for objects, may become 3D printable – even including body implants – in a range of materials, including metals.

U.Va. engineers and engineering students are using sophisticated 3-D printing technology to make an array of objects, including a plastic airplane for a Department of the Army project.
