In our latest podcast Dr Kate Black, a lecturer in Additive Manufacturing in the University’s Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering, discusses 3D printing and how it could be used in the future.
There is a tremendous amount of hype about the potential of 3D printing. The technology is already able to produce customized, one-of-a-kind prosthetic limbs, or artificial hips for patients. These devices are designed specifically to fit each individual’s unique anatomy.
In this podcast Dr Black takes us on a journey to the not-so-distant future of 3D printing. A place where limbs are not so much printed as grown, and the components are not plastic and metal but flesh and blood.
