TOP 5 VIDEOS: 3D printing medical models to prepare for surgery…
This week we found the top 5 videos about 3D printing and the way additive manufacturing is shaping our society. The technology has infiltrated many sectors, from medical to space! Check out our selection of the week to keep up with the innovations! This week we touch on 3DEXPERIENCE’s business experience platform, 3D printing for medical devices and much more! If you enjoy these, you can view even more 3D printing videos on our Youtube channel. Hope you’ll enjoy and have a great Sunday!
TOP 1: 3DEXPERIENCE, the business experience platform
3DEXPERIENCE, launched by Dassault Systèmes is a marketplace dedicated to providing a business platform for design & manufacturing, manufacturing & production, simulation, governance & lifecycle, 3D design experience for professionals as well as a broad catalog of services. In the following video, they present one of their partners, Sculpteo. The company is a web-based 3D printing factory as well a software developer. Traditionally, 3D printing has been thought of as a rapid prototyping technology. Companies like Sculpteo provide the technology and expertise to respond to your prototyping needs or even production needs.
TOP 2: Raytheon builds prosthetic hand
Raytheon is a technology and innovation company – they used the Immersive Design Centre to enable the creation of a prosthetic hand prototype for a young boy. Raytheon volunteer engineers and high-school students teamed up to design a new terminal device for a young boy’s prosthetic. Their partners in Texas Scottish Rite hospital oversaw the final design and fitting. This is one of the initiatives taken by Raytheon to promote STEM learning.
TOP 3: Rady’s Children Hospital uses HP’s 3D solution
Earlier this year HP launched a series of new 3D printers – at Rady’s Children Hospital they use HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 580 color 3D printer to make medical models. They are able to create medical models that replicate a patients organ. Thanks to this technology, surgeons are able to reduce surgery time as they can study and prepare using the 3D printed model. The color capabilities of HP’s 3D printers allow to create very detailed and precise models. Find out how this hospital is benefiting from this technology below!
TOP 4: Additive Manufacturing for space
Additive manufacturing technologies show great potential, even for space! In the following video, Ralf Usinger explains how RUAG Space has been designing and manufacturing lightweight satellite structures for space for more than 50 years. In the Innovative Centre for Additive Manufacture at Inspire, research is conducted to study and create lightweight structures, with a focus in the last few years on spacecraft construction structures. They are partnering with RUAG Space and ETH Zurich in order to further explore additive manufacturing technologies to improve the mechanical performance of insert structures for space!
TOP 5: HP’s Process Control Software
HP’s 3D Process Control Software seeks to achieve final-part level dimensional accuracy and repeatability, reduce part waste, and accelerate process control time like never before by creating calibrated printing profiles for specific devices and across a fleet of devices. Find out more about this software!
