3D printing expanded by another dimension.

In the last couple of years we extensively reported about 3D printed in the field of medicine.

Now the innovative methods of medical technology were supplemented by a further dimension (time) and 4D printing was used treating the first patient.

The doctors used a printed implant which dissolves after a certain time. It thus fulfils the purpose of a temporary spacefiller and offers the body the chance of new tissue to settle through the implant.

Unfortunately, the report does not show which material or which printing method was used exactly.

Nevertheless, we are very curious about other fields of application for the 4D printing method.
