a.saji, good point: the plastics have to function and survive in the body but they must also not harm the body's functions and survival.

I agree, Chuck, it will be interesting to see what new developments there are in plastics for this extremely difficult environment.

@Murray: Yes indeed and you cannot make mistakes or do any trial runs inside the human body. No errors basically.

Ann, I'll be curious to see the Medtronic presentation on stronger polymers in cardiac rhythm products. The inside of the human body can be a pretty caustic environment.

Here are new recycled materials, new recycling machines, and other news about recycling 3D printed materials we've put together in one place.
A composite based on a high-performance PEEK-like resin we told you about two years ago when it was still in R&D has now been licensed by the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) for commercial manufacturing.
Hospital-acquired infections and more home use of medical devices are shaking up device design, bringing more plastics into increasingly complex designs.
Microsoft, HP, Dassault, and other industry heavyweights in 3D printing have launched a new 3DP file format, 3MF. The consortium says the spec will more fully describe a 3D model and will be interoperable with multiple applications, platforms, services, and printers.
NASA's been working on several different ongoing projects for 3D-printed rocket engine components in metals and now it's reached another first in aerospace 3D printing: a full-scale, 3D-printed rocket engine component made of copper.
