For all the weird uses of 3D printing, there are many that stand to make the world a better place. One of those is printing liquid scaffolds for use in artificial human tissue engineering, according to C&EN. With these new scaffolds, engineers are expected to have better control over tissue growth when attempting to grow artificial tissue.

The printer sprays these water droplets (which have been injected with... Read more...
