Engineering Minute – 3D printing directly on skin

3D printing directly on skin

Engineers at University of Minnesota have successfully 3D printed directly onto skin. Using a modified 3D printer, that cost less than $400, the team both printed electronics and biological cells on skin. A key feature of the printer is that it can adjust to small movements a person makes while printing through the use of temporary makers placed on the skin. The team envisions both military and health care applications for their technique. Read more about 3D printing directly on skin at University of Minnesota.
