    3D printed Bottle System for Premature Babies

    Ravid Koriat, a recent graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, designed a new style of feeding system for newborns and premature babies, the FEEDER using Stratasys 3D printing technology and materials. The FEEDER system was specifically designed for newborns in neonatal intensive care units, and it was meant to streamline and improve breast milk collection, storage and delivery to the child. Koriat developed 3D printed prototypes for the FEEDER which was her final project in her Industrial Design studies. You can read the whole story here:

    Would like to know where u are at in production of this feeder and if the materials u are using are natural?

    It doesn't say which parts are printed but I'll cover the usual issues... printed items are not food safe. And especially not for premature babies.

    Actually the Danish Ministry of Food ordered a study and found that most 3D printed items (except for SLA prints) have no measurable migration in risk scenarios for infants. Also, the FDA does not care about product geometry (i.e. the amount of crevices) - in order words how clean the product stays is the consumer's responsibility. So it is realistic to launch 3D printed products for food consumption, even for infants.
