Gallery: MIT Scientists Create 3D-Printed Artificial Bone

 

Scientists at MIT have figured out a way to produce a 3D-printed artificial bone that is just as lightweight and durable as the real thing. By analyzing the structural patterns found in natural bone and mother of pearl, the team has produced a 3D-printed material that mimics the structure and performance actual bones. The new material is part of MIT’s quest to create a line of super durable and efficient metamaterials that can be used in anything from construction to medical uses.
