Your 2nd heart, lungs... will be made by Autodesk?



...and will you design them?

http://www.wired.com/design/2012/12...ovo-background/


Quote: Autodesk is developing CAD tools that can design new blood vessels, liver tissue and other replacement parts for the human body in collaboration with 3-D bioprinter company Organovo. After their recent announcement about the project, the principals from each side have gone into detail about their excitement for the partnership. The pairing will be a dramatic development for Organovo. Their bioprinters allow scientists to deposit cells and grow functional human tissues for use in medical research. They’re amazingly powerful 21st-century tools, but run on software left over from the Apollo era. Every time a scientist wants to print something, they have to write a script from scratch and run it from the command line. Instead of dreaming up new experiments, biologists have been kept busy debugging code. “We already work at the intersection of enough disciplines that developing software was not something we thought was a good idea,” says Keith Murphy, CEO of Organovo. “Having 3-D design software will help scientists get to experiments faster, as well as make it easier for external academic experts to approach the our systems.”

Uhm, is your new heart going to require a subscription? I guess, that's if your lucky enough to have it designed with, the least bugs, service pack version. Otherwise?
The big question is how are they going to somehow utilize the cloud?

Hm, no i would rather die than getting new organs designed and built by Autodesk which would certainly kill me anyways.

I am downloading a pirated Autodesk liver off the web. not because I need one but just so I can complain about My Autodesk "product".




Cheers

Volunteers for the Beta program?

If it lets scientists escape a cumbersome scripting/command line workflow, then this is indeed good news.

Who knows when you may need a new heart, liver, or other vital organ? Maybe not now, but 20 years from now?

So in that sense, this collaboration is good news. It might wind up saving a lot of lives in the long run...

My 2 Cents.

Beta testers? It is too costly. Lets release it and test it on the fly.

Lol. What was the name of that movie that came out last year where they would reposses your organ if you missed a payment.

It's not necessarily the manufacture you need to worry about, it's the repossession.

Next time read the EULA carefully.

Spot on!

Hopefully Pixologic will pick up on the tech and we will be able to design and print our own cybernetic limbs and biomech augmentations....
