Magnet Plastic Heart Through 3D Printed Artificial Heart Pumps Like Real Heart

Kai von Petersdorff-Campen, a doctoral student in the mechanical and process engineering department at ETH Zurich, revealed his prototype of Magnet-Plastic Heart made through 3D Printing which took him 15 hears. The method, so called embedded magnet printing, involved 3D printing the magnets directly in the plasti and making processing them into filament strands, before they are 3D printed using FDM technology. The prototype of 3D printed heart pump was able to successfully pump 2.5 liters per minute with 1,000 rotations, but still needs to meet the required standards.
