Have you ever thought of frying a steak in your own kitchen while printing it with 3D printing services?
The invention of 3D printing services to print steaks was an accident
Dr. Rubinsky, a professor at the university of California, Berkeley, who began teaching in 1980, has patents and interests in biomedical engineering and the transfer of heat and mass in biotechnology.
Dr Rubinsky’s interest in 3D printing services began early, but mainly in medicine.As early as January 14, 2019, the university of California, San Diego, used the rapid 3D printing services technology to create a spinal cord scaffold that mimics the structure of the central nervous system, successfully helping rats to restore motor function.
Dr Rubinski wants to go one step further and print out human organs to meet medical needs, such as kidneys.If you could print a living kidney, you would no longer have to be frustrated by the need to find a suitable replacement for kidney failure.
Dr. Rubinsky has spent years working on this idea.He tried to print out a kidney frame, fill it with active biological cells and give the right chemical conditions to encourage the cells to grow.
But here’s the problem. The whole printing process takes about five hours. During this process, the biological cells that are gradually filled up cannot survive due to oxidation.Another problem is that 3D printing services are not yet available to print blood vessels or nerves (too small in diameter).
By accident, however, Dr Lu used liquid nitrogen freezing to create slices of meat that would stick together layer by layer.Although these cells don’t survive, the resulting pieces add up to look just like our edible meat.
Then came the climax.It may be the meat printed by liquid nitrogen freezing technology that makes Dr Lu feel familiar with the meat sold in the market.War!Food market!
You must be very strange, eat a meat, why do it?Isn’t it enough to kill pigs and sheep?Detective is here to find out why this 3D printed meat slice is a great discovery.
1. Meet the needs of special patients
For example, more than 40 million hospital surgeries are performed each year, so in many cases patients recovering from surgery have difficulty chewing or swallowing and can benefit from nutritious meals.
Lu’s 3D printing services can produce meat that tastes just as good as the meat we normally eat, but melts on its own when it gets down our throats, allowing even the most unpalatable foods to be enjoyed by all.
In addition, the 3D printing services process allows for the combination of multiple components.Although various meats such as beef and lamb can be mixed and printed, RS3Dprint also successfully prints beef/vegetable and beef/fruit combinations.This combination of mass production of meat and fruits/vegetables into snacks will open up new food markets for the world.
2. Solve the social problem of food waste
According to the RS3Dprint research report, a third of all vegetables, fruits and meats are eliminated before they even reach the market.The raw materials used for 3D printing are also meant to be prepared in powder form, so whatever meat product is produced, it will be ground to powder the same way.
3. It can provide a better food source for soldiers or astronauts
The United States spends about 54 percent of its budget on military spending.That’s $598.5 billion a year.While the budget covers everything from ham to grenades, which are expensive, military spending is a real economic engine in the us.From food to gas, medicine, schools to nuclear weapons, as the largest discretionary consumer in the U.S. economy, this is clearly a market opportunity for 3d-printed foods.
