3D printing method turns goo into a hand in minutes

Published March 12, 2021


Futurity, Yahoo! Japan, Gizmodo's Japanese website and Popular Mechanics' website for South Africa were among news outlets worldwide that continued reporting on advances in 3D printing that center on a method called stereolithography and jelly-like materials known as hydrogels. 

“The technology we’ve developed is 10-50 times faster than the industry standard, and it works with large sample sizes that have been very difficult to achieve previously,” says Ruogang Zhao, associate professor of biomedical engineering, and co-lead author of the paper with Chi Zhou, associate professor of industrial and systems engineering. This line of research could lead to advances in 3D printed human organs and tissue.
