So today is Fat Tuesday that is followed by Ash Wednesday tomorrow, so I figured we’d talk religion and 3D printing…yes, there does appear to be some connections and not just a 3D printed Jesus! Jahovah’s Witnesses do not believe in receiving blood transfusions and this often limits their ability to undergo lifesaving surgery. Here’s a great example of a blood recycling device made with 3D printed parts where new technology can save lives while still respecting religious beliefs.
It isn’t limited to Christianity, people are even 3D printing Hindu idols. Of course if you want to blend your faith and your technology the best way to attract questions on both fronts could be to buy yourself a 3D printed crucifix!
