I've been following their bioprinter for some time.  Theee are many bioprinters on the market now, but one thing I particularly appreciate about the bioassemblybot is that it not only prints 3D structures, but can actually print in 3 dimensions.  That is to say, it doesn't have to deposit in 2 dimensions only.  This may be a particular significant advantage in clinical applications.

Very interesting comment, Bill - could such a dynamic printer also mean that scaffolds aren't required to support the structure as it's being printed?

Well, I'm not an expert with it.  But it does mean that you can print new structures apon a preformed existing complex 3D structure  of most any density.  Like you can print a cone hat on a clown doll's head.  Can do that with many printers.

I meant to say that you can't do that with many printers
