3Qs: A 3-​​D printout for your health

The field of 3-​​D printing tech­nology is rev­o­lu­tion­izing indus­tries across the spec­trum, from the arts to elec­tronics. We asked Con­stan­tinos Mavroidis, Dis­tin­guished Pro­fessor of Engi­neering, to explain how the approach, which is capable of rapidly pro­ducing low-​​cost three-​​dimensional struc­tures the same way an ink-​​jet printer cre­ates a two-​​dimensional image, is begin­ning to do the same […]
