(3DPrintingMediaNetwork) Kai von Petersdorff-Campen, a doctoral researcher at ETH Zurich, is developing a process for 3D printing objects that contain embedded magnets, recently demonstrated the technology’s viability by 3D printing an artificial heart pump.
The process, called “embedded magnet printing” has already garnered a significant amount of attention from around the globe and notably from the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs (ASAIO), which invited Petersdorff-Campen to its conference in Washington this past June to give a podium speech. The researcher was also awarded the top prize for ASAIO’s prototype competition for the 3D printed artificial heart pump.
