While FDM, SLA, two-photon laser, drop on demand are some of the most popular biofabrication methods, this “From Academia” issue includes three less well know but trending methods that could be...
3D printing for perioperative planning has been around since the birth of STL. However, the medical community has gone through many milestones, and this “From Academia” blog highlights three...
I had a lot of fun speaking to Matteo Zanfabro (Instagram account: 3dvet.printing and playvet3d) because of many good reasons. Not only we both love what 3D printing can do for...
Ti-6Al-4V trabecular implants including lattice structures to enhance mechanical and biological properties can be made to show similar mechanical response to human bone and have been used with success for more than 10 years. However, there are some limitations and challenges in designing, product development, and production stages of these high-tech medical goods. Given my work at Btech, a manufacturer and reseller in the medical 3D printing space, I want to share our experiences and strategies to overcome in-house medical device production challenges.
In this episode of Instagram Live recording, I had the pleasure to interview two young startup co-founders, Adam Hecht and Alex Tholl from @divedesignco (website: DiveDesign Studio) who created a niche for themselves in the space of 3D printed prosthesis for animals and athletes. Important topics covered in this interview (in both video and podcast formats) include: How can a young product design company effectively differentiate itself from thousands of others? What was the inflection point of Adam and Alex's success story? What were their growth strategies? What new technologies are they looking at? What projects they have taken on that could potentially transform an entire industry? And more.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus has forced our global community to practice social distancing and work remotely. This has increased the adoption of cloud-based productivity and collaboration tools and promoted the development of creative new solutions. Scientists have had to find new ways to continue their critical research to study the novel coronavirus and develop drugs. Among these new tools is Nanome, a virtual reality software for molecular modeling and structure-based drug design.
In this episode of Instagram Live recording, I invited Dr. Daniel Vegh, a young faculty member and prosthodontist from Semmelweis University (Budapest, Hungary) to share with us his early journey of learning about dental 3D printing, his recent accomplishments in the space, and his vision for its future. Dr. Vegh is the author behind @3d_printing_dentistry on Instagram. During the interview, Daniel also shared how he leveraged social media to build a community for dental 3D printing both locally and internationally. He also brought us a few examples of his past works on camera.
It has been almost nine months since we interviewed Mike Graffeo, CEO, and co-founder of Fluidform, a 3D printing startup out of Carnegie Mellon University focusing on key applications using Freeform Reversible Embedding of Suspended Hydrogels (FRESH) technology. If the average lifetime of a typical startup is five years, the one-year time of a startup is equivalent to 20 human years. Check out this episode of Instagram Live on how a bioprinting startup was founded, lessons learned, ambitions, and more.
3D Printing (3DP), also known as Additive Manufacturing (AM) enables the low-cost and customization of anthropomorphic radiotherapy phantoms. Phantoms are utilized, in-vitro, for the treatment planning of cancer patients and the quality assurance of new radiotherapy techniques, to validate target doses and minimize the effects of ionizing radiation on surrounding healthy tissues.
