Biomaterials: 'Bones' made with 3D printer

Synthetic bones promote natural bone regeneration after being implanted into animals.Ramille Shah at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and her colleagues used a 3D printer to generate 'hyperelastic bone'. The main component of the material was hydroxyapatite — a calcium mineral similar to one
