Scientists have printed the world’s first 3D heart.

The 3D heart was unveiled on Monday by researches at the Tel Aviv University. Scientists created the heart by performing a biopsy on a patient to obtain cells and human heart tissue.

It took three hours to print. They hope the heart will help in future research, repairing deceased hearts and other vital organs.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 610,000 people in the U.S. die from heart disease each year.
