This is how 3D Printing is changing the world.  The 3D printed prosthetics will not remove the need for technicians, but they are still much better than nothing. Also, patients only need to go to the hospital to get their prosthetic and learn how to use it. No long-term consultations and adjustments are needed before their artificial limb is ready for use.

▶ Is 3D Printing the next industrial revolution? | Herbert Hermens | TEDxBendigo - YouTube

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Reflecting the first Industrial Revolution and its impact, Herbert argues that 3D Printing will have a greater impact. It will also create a more equitable distribution of wealth than the previous revolution. 3D printing will affect all aspects of our lives from replacement organs to the construction of our homes.

Herbert Hermens is a widely experienced executive. This has included international operating responsibility extending from sales and marketing management and general management to managing director roles in the industrial, professional and consumer products industries. Career achievements include entering new distribution channels, positioning organisations for sustainable growth and launching new products as well as developing strong business links with key distributors, suppliers and end users.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Airbus is at the start of an innovation revolution using 3D printing technology. 3D plastic parts are already flying on a commercial A310 and an A350 XWB test aircraft. Metal parts for wing slats, a section of the tail wing and door hinges have also been made with  3Dprinting. IN the coming years of the technology will allow manufacturing costs to fall while lighter parts will mean less fuel burn for airlines.

▶ 3D Printed Tape Measure - YouTube

I thought these pieces were incredible. Not for the fact that they are 3d printed but for the fact that they were 3d printed all in one print, already together. Below is what a man going by the handle of AngryMonk has been working on. He is trying to 3D print an entire toolbox. So far he has come up with designs and printed out 2 different tools. Both amazing, if you ask me.

The first tool is a Tape Measure which can be printed out completely assembled. It is actually made up of 114 different parts which the printer prints out in 1 piece.


This means the tool comes out of the printer exactly how you see it, with tape inside and all. The tape measure has about 52 inches of tape in it, and is accurate down to about a quarter to a half an inch.

▶ Baby Heart Patient Saved by 3D Printing - YouTube

Video Transcrip: Hospital officials at the Kosair Children's Hospital have stated that 3D printing was used to support an infant pediatric heart patient for the first time recently. Doctors operating on baby Rolande, a 14-month-old with heart defects studied a three dimensional replica of the child's heart to aid successful surgery outcomes. The infant's heart was riddled with defects before the surgery at the Hospital and his surgeon, Dr. Erle Austin, said that he had anticipated that the surgery would be tricky and thus sought a model that offered more detail than traditional 2D scans.

Dr. Austin's team contacted the University of Louisville J.B. Speed School of Engineering, which used a 3D printer to create a polymer model of the heart to provide vital insight ahead of the planned surgery.

Once he had a model, it was clear what needed to be done and how he could do it. The Cardiothoracic surgeon was able to reduce exploratory incisions, reduce overall operating time and also even ensure that Roland would not require any sequential or consequential follow-up operations for this relatively high-risk surgery.

Roland, the son of Par Tha Sung and Sang Ceu Lian of Owensboro, Kentucky, U.S.A., was born with heart problems that included a hole in his heart, as well as misaligned aorta and pulmonary arteries, which, if left untreated, would have been fatal.

The engineering team behind this wonderful application of 3D printing created the model and end-use 3D print in just 20 hours on a MakerBot Replicator 2X desktop 3D printer.

Jake Cumner's curator insight, March 10, 2014 6:24 AM

Reminded me of a blog I wrote less than 12 months ago.  At the time I priced 3d printers at between $20-50k each.  Just checked out prices again and they are down to  a reasonalbe price of $1299.

Arthur Charles Smith's curator insight, March 11, 2014 6:43 PM

3D priniting can be used to give surgeons and 3D perspective. 3D priniting was able to save a 14 month old child. Because of the various applications, 3D priniting could possibly be one of the  most importanat technologies of the 21st century.

▶ Video: New cardiac device - YouTube

This video shows a rabbit heart that has been kept beating outside of the body in a nutrient and oxygen-rich solution. 


Using an inexpensive 3-D printer, Washington University biomedical engineers have developed a custom-fitted, implantable device with embedded sensors that could transform treatment and prediction of cardiac disorders.


Igor Efimov, PhD, at the School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University in St. Louis and an international team of biomedical engineers and materials scientists have created a 3-D elastic membrane made of a soft, flexible, silicon material that is precisely shaped to match the heart’s epicardium, or the outer layer of the wall of the heart.


Current technology is two-dimensional and cannot cover the full surface of the epicardium or maintain reliable contact for continual use without sutures or adhesives.

Precise 3D membrane to fit each patient


The team prints tiny sensors onto the membrane that can precisely measure temperature, mechanical strain and pH, among other markers, or deliver a pulse of electricity in cases of arrhythmia. Those sensors could assist physicians with determining the health of the heart, deliver treatment or predict an impending heart attack before a patient exhibits any physical signs.
