Change Is Additive—Week of 8/25/2017

CHANGE IS ADDITIVE—A 3D Printing News Series by Fathom

Accidents in 3D Printing, Second Quarter Manufacturers Outlook Survey, Additive Manufacturing of Structures for Orbit in Space, GrabCAD Print for Stratasys Systems and More

With so many weekly developments in a fast-changing industry like additive manufacturing, the headlines can really stack up. To cut through the clutter of 3D printing news, check out these staff picks of the week. What do you think is the most impactful development?


3D Printing Accident Results in Bioactive Tissue Paper with Healing Properties

Scientists and engineers at Northwestern Medicine are reporting they have invented a variety of bioactive “tissue papers” made of materials derived from organs that are thin and flexible enough to even fold into an origami bird. The new biomaterials have the potential be used to develop natural hormone production in young cancer patients and aid wound healing / / Watch Video


3D Printed Garment That You Can Buy Online

Many of us thinking of 3D printed clothes as one-off items reserved only for runways—but this is the story of how Daniet Peleg decided to create a platform to sell additively fabricated fashion that can actually be worn / / Watch Video


New Method for 3D Printing Living Tissues

Scientists claim to have developed a new method to 3D print laboratory-grown cells to form living structures. The approach could revolutionize regenerative medicine, enabling the production of complex tissues and cartilage that would potentially support, repair or augment diseased and damaged areas of the body / / Read More
