I remember reading up on 3D printers some time ago and it is all very interesting. I look forward to the day I can print myself a meat feast pizza.

I believe they are experimenting with 3D printing human organs using cultured tissue.

Yes and teeth. Dentists will be able to print crowns and implants while you wait.

Re: 3D Printing

Noel Fitzpatrick's supplier uses 3D printing for surgical implants. He prints 3D plastic models from scans to show the pet's "parents" what has happened/what he intends to do.
