"Bioplotting" 3D printing used to help treat type 1 diabetes

Among other revolutionary breakthroughs we’ve been seeing with additive manufacturing technologies as of late, the push for 3D bioprinting has been moving forward at an alarming pace.

Among other applications, researchers have been able to leverage the technology to create what is soon to be the first implanted thyroid gland that was made via 3D printing, and consumer product companies such as L'Oréal and Procter & Gamble have been showing an increased interest in the near-future of 3D printed skin tissues for testing out their products. Now, a new application for 3D bioprinting has been discovered that could bring hope for those suffering diabetes and have to receive treatments to manage their disease.
