The Lattice is 3DHEALS weekly recap of the latest developments, expert insights, academic publications, upcoming events in the world of healthcare 3D printing, and 3D Bioprinting.  Have a cool 3D printed Lattice photo to share with us? Tag us @3dheals on Instagram or Twitter

About the Lattice this week:  We found this 3D printed anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) spinal cage photo on Instagram by @ntopology. This spinal implant that is used to help merge two adjacent vertebral bodies. “3D printed Gyroid infill lattice can be used to make metal 3D printed implants much lighter, but still strong enough to withstand spinal compression while porous enough to accept osteoplasts.”
