3D printers can make replacement jawbones, musical instruments, chess sets, wallets, cups, and other 3-dimensional objects. Scientists use 3D printers to create bio-print fibers, capillaries, and human tissue in an attempt to print organs. A new 3D printer uses sweat glands and hair follicles to create tissue and help burn victims. Tissue Structure Information Modeling is also a revolutionary technology that uses a six-axis robot to print tissues and organs. Organ printing is probably years and decades away, but this is a major breakthrough. It means better outcomes for patients with serious and life threatening conditions. The good news is that a liver tissue model is expected to be released soon and will be used for research purposes.
