This case of the artificial heart shows the potential of 3D printing in creating the necessary medical equipment that helps to advance the study on life-saving devices. It is amazing how incorporating 3D printers can push forward the work on an artificial heart by allowing not only to create the model but the complete computerised test stand.
An artificial heart could be used as a bridge during the period between of waiting for an available heart and the transplant surgery. Although there are 3D printers that can print with cells that are biocompatible with the human tissue, creating a model of a working artificial heart is still in the the distant future.
The commonly applied method for curing cancer that appears on or just below skin often involves regular radiation. Unfortunately, during this procedure, the tissue that surrounds the affected area is exposed to X-rays. To avoid this, special boluses, usually made of wax, are applied to patients but producing them is time- and labour-intensive and there is no guarantee that the end result will be precise enough to provide efficient protection from X-rays.
Application of the 3D printing technology in the area of healthcare is not a fancy daydream. Instead we can forecast that this technology will be playing a bigger role in the future development of medicine.

The resulting material can withstand ultrahigh temperatures in excess of 1700°C and exhibits strength ten times higher than similar materials.
Previously, The extremely high melting point of many ceramics adds challenges to additive manufacturing as compared with metals and polymers. But now, the invented preceramic monomers are cured with ultraviolet light in a stereolithography 3D printer forming 3D polymer structures that can have complex shape and cellular architecture. These polymer structures can be pyrolyzed to a ceramic with uniform shrinkage and virtually no porosity by heating.
The vast industry that has sprung up around this latter type of “non-chairside restoration” is a complex and exacting business. After all, no two people’s teeth are the same and every type and extent of tooth damage is unique to the individual. Many such restorations performed today still use lost-wax technology that has barely changed in 100 years.
The strengths of Additive Manufacturing lie in those areas where conventional manufacturing reaches its limitations. It enables a design-driven manufacturing process – where design determines production and not the other way around.
