Bio printing with bacteria on an Ultimaker Originial +

Posted (edited) · Bio printing with bacteria on an Ultimaker Originial +

Hello 3D hackers !

Since 2014 I'm experimenting with biomaterials, colourful bacteria and local microorganisms at Hackuarium Lausanne. Then tried a less successful but feasible mix with bacteria and bioplastic in 2015 that brought me to achieve a sort of what we could call a https://vlorenzolana.myportfolio.com/biofilia-urbana"]bioprinter in 2016. I was wondering if someone has tried yet and if we could share the knowledge. This is my result as a residency in Medialab Prado in Madrid https://vlorenzolana.myportfolio.com/biofilia-urbana and here is the GITHUB https://github.com/Vlorenzolana/BiofiliaUrbana

Of course, everything work in progress !

Please let me know your thoughts, advices and curiosities.

For intance, I have a question: where to get a nice cheap consistent bio noozle?

Love,

Vanessa

Just seen this post - it's something quite different to normal printing.

I guess the hardest part is to get viable bacteria through the print head without them being killed off by the heat. Search for the lowest temperature plastic available and print really quickly to minimise the time in the heated nozzle.

A cold print bed would help.

You may find that bacteria in their dormant state are more robust

I followed your link, but because the language is not in english I am unclear about what the potential applications are of this process.

What are the applications?

Are you extruding live bacteria within the plastic or is it getting killed by the heat?
