EnvisionTEC, often known for its high resolution digital light processing (DLP) 3D printers, is also in the business of manufacturing machines for 3D bioprinting. And the company has just announced that it is releasing an upgrade to its previous 3D-Bioplotter machine in addition to a new Developer Series model.

The EnvisionTEC 3D-Bioplotter® 3D printing technique may be described as the deposition of multiple materials in three dimensions using pressure. Materials range from a viscous paste to a liquid, and are inserted using syringes moving in three dimensions. Air or mechanical pressure is applied to the syringe, which then deposits a strand of material for the length of movement and time the pressure is applied. Parallel strands are plotted in one layer. For the following layer, the direction of the strands is turned over the center of the object, creating a fine mesh with good mechanical properties and mathematically well-defined porosity.
