mrdon, yes, I was talking specifically about regulations for the materials, 3D printed or not.

What Objet/Stratasys is doing in the dental industry so far is mostly models for dental devices, not so much the actual devices themselves, as we covered here

Another 3D printing company, EOS, is more focused on the actual appliances, especially those done with metal such as the ones made by BEGO

taimoortariq, your comment about bone is interesting. See what MIT has come up with here, although this is only a very small start:

Pharmaceutical companies initially used to test  the drugs on 2D printed tissues but 2D cell cultures donot reflect human tissues as accurately as 3D printed tissues . There 3 d printed tissues can be used by these pharmaceuticl companies as well to test the drugs on initial stages and prevent further investment if the drug is not giving necessary results .

Other than just developing the models engineers are also trying to develop organs for replacement like kidneys and so on . For this they are trying to develop bio printers that have bio ink made of living cell mixtures  to form human tissue and with this printed tissue engineers are planning to develop the organs .

 

The other day i came ocross that one of the university in North Carolina is trying to develop a 3D skin printer that deposits cells on the wound which helps to heel in quicly, Engieers are cornell university have printed heart valves and bone implants . All these advancement was just the dream /fantasy of people once but now it is becomming reality similarly in future many more advancements will be done which we cant even imagine as well.

Thats really very great that 3D printing is being used in medical industry at such high scale .If this technology becomes common then it will overcome the hassel of waiting for a long time to get the models . Few days back i read somewhere that 3D printing is not only being used in making the models but also in manufacturing the organs for replacement as well like kidneys and so on .Bio printers are used which has bio ink which manufactures 3D structure of the cell. But this technology will definitely take a long time to become common and to boom .

taimoortariq,

The project sounds pretty awesome. I suspect 3D Printing via the Cloud will become a mainstream industry pretty soon. Again, anyone can now create products without the overhead of purchasing 3D printers and maintaining them using Cloud services. It's quite amazing to see how a product that was for hobbyists has now opened new opportunities in Additive Manufacturing. I'll definitely be keeping a close eye on this exciting Manufacturing trend.

A new 3D printer that prints fully functional electronics -- like quadcopters -- will be available later this year from Voxel8, brainchild of Harvard prof Jennifer A. Lewis.
Many of the new adhesives we're featuring in this slideshow are for use in automotive and other transportation applications. The rest of these new products are for a wide variety of applications including aviation, aerospace, electrical motors, electronics, industrial, and semiconductors.
A Columbia University team working on molecular-scale nano-robots with moving parts has run into wear-and-tear issues. They've become the first team to observe in detail and quantify this process, and are devising coping strategies by observing how living cells prevent aging.
Many of the new materials on display at MD&M West were developed to be strong, tough replacements for metal parts in different kinds of medical equipment: IV poles, connectors for medical devices, medical device trays, and torque-applying instruments for orthopedic surgery. Others are made for close contact with patients.
New sensor technology integrates sensors, traces, and electronics into a smart fabric for wearables that measures more dimensions -- force, location, size, twist, bend, stretch, and motion -- and displays data in 3D maps.
