3D Printed Anti-Pollution Mask Optimized With Help From Sinterit And Autodesk

3D designer Bartłomiej Gaczorek has produced a mask that filters out polluted air on a Sinterit Lisa SLS 3D printer. Gaczorek, who has previously 3D printed an exoskeleton for children suffering from SMA (Spinal  Muscular Atrophy), designed the “brifo” mask, also aimed at younger users, on Autodesk Netfabb, before SLS 3D printing it with multiple materials. The bare necessities of

How 3D printing could help treat hearing loss

University of Maryland researchers created 3D printed implants of a tiny bone in the middle ear. Early results show a potential for improvement over current techniques. Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore are looking at 3D printing to help treat hearing loss. A study that will be presented Friday at the Radiological Society of North
