The innovative possibilities for 3D Printing usage are seemingly endless. A key component that impacts usage, however, is the material used in the printing process. The most popular material is plastic, with Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS) being the long-standing material of choice. Several renewable sources, including Polylactic Acid (PLA), are gaining ground due to their many environmental and health-related benefits.

A researcher in Materials Science describes the importance of reading and researching outside standard fields of research – talking about his results of combining materials science, biology and medicine.
Anthony B. Brennan, Ph.D., D.Sc. is a professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Florida, where he leads the Brennan Research Group. But he also has a strong interest in biology and has a joint appointment to the University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering. Much of his research, therefore, lies at the intersection of materials science, biology and medicine.”
