3D printing is already involved in many facets of the medical community, but as the technology expands and grows, so does it's potential applications.

The technology is currently used in a variety of different ways including:

  • Medical training models
  • Dentures and orthodontic molds
  • Surgical Planning

How do you see this technology being used to expand of what modern medicine can accomplish?

Do you think we will reach a world in which we can simply 3D print new organs or body parts? Or do you think the technology will be limited to training models and surgical planning?

What engineering roadblocks need to be taken down before we can reach this future?
