The images are vastly more intricate than the hot air sintering system I read about years earlier.

The hackerspace Hive-76 in Philly did this a couple of years ago with a medical researcher to print blood vessels in sugar as prototypes to work on 3D printing kidneys.

The same can be used to create blood systems for replacemen hearts. There is a current technique to take a heart, disolve away the heart tissue, leaving the blood vessels, and regrow the heart tissue with the patient's stem cells. Still requires a doner heart. This method can create the blood vessels from scratch.

Sugar could make a very cheap, and safe water soluable support material.
