Antique 3D printed gun

We 3D printed a replica of an 18th-century gun using Bronzefill and Woodfill filaments. Results are just stunning, especially the level of detail on metal-like parts, so go ahead and have a look for yourself.

  1. Witam,
    In the medical blog, I missed / W blogu na tematy medyczne zabraklo mi
    1. A statement on the largest (40%) number of patents in 3DP concerning medical applications. / Stwierdzenia, ze najwiecej (40%) jest patentow dotyczacych zastosowan medycznych.
    2. Presentation of the most promising, although (except one example) still not applied, medical application of 3DP: cell printing (bioprinting) / Omowienia najbardziej obiecujacego, chociaz jeszcze (poza jednym przykladem) nie stosowanego, zastosowania medycznego: drukowania komorkami (bioprinting).
    3. Mentioning of totally overtaken by 3DP market of hearing aids. / Wspomnienia calkowicie opanowanego przez druk 3D rynku protez sluchowych.
    4. Mentioning of dentistry which is close to be overtaken by 3DP. / Wspomnienia stomatologii, ktora wkrotce tez bedzie calkowicie przejeta.
    5. Mentioning such programs as Enable or Not Impossible, collecting funding and 3D printing prostheses for for the victims of land mines in Asia and Africa or poor. / Wspomnienia programow takich jak Enable czy Not Impossible, ktore zbieraja fundusze i drukuja protezy dla ofiar min piechotnych lub dla biednych w Azji i Afryce, ktore sa b. tanie.
    I have recently wrote a review article on the medical applications of 3DP to be published soon in English in “Kardiochirurgia and Torakochirurgia”. / Napisalam ostatnio prace przegladowa na temat zastosowan medycznych druku 3D, ktora wkrotce ukaze sie w “Kardiochirurgii i Torakochirurgii”.
    Regards, / Pozdrawiam,

    1. Thank you for your comment.
      The wide range of medical 3D printing applications is just stunning and couldn’t be described properly in just one article. In this one, we have focused on some of the most amazing applications already in use, but in the future, we’d also like to get back to other medical topics and describe in more detail applications that you too mentioned. The use of 3D printing in dentistry is a great topic for us, for example, especially that ZMorph machines are a very good fit for it.
