Castor Oil Delivers Eco-Friendly 3D Printed Orthosis

Does anybody out there remember taking castor oil as a health remedy? My mom used to give us a tablespoon of the oily liquid when we had an upset stomach. Tasted nasty. It taught me not to tell Mom about stomach troubles. Apparently, there are plenty of other uses for the castor bean. Turns out this vegetable oil that comes from pressed castor beans is a 100% bio-sourced, renewable polymer that can be used as a material in additive manufacturing.
