3D-printing equipment maker Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) and UK-based 3D-printing materials company 4D Biomaterials announce that they have achieved the capability of printing micro-scale geometries using 4Degra bioresorbable materials. Reportedly the first time a bioresorbable material has been printed using this process, the technology has the potential to revolutionize the way implantable medical devices are manufactured. Miniature rigid orthopedic devices and micro-scale soft-tissue applications are cited by the companies as early opportunities.
