Free Automated Software to Design 3D Printable Cranial Implants

Repairing skull defects with custom cranial implants, otherwise known as a cranioplasty, is expensive and takes a great deal of time, as the the existing process often results in bottlenecks…

Bioresorbable Ceramics Allow Admatec to Make 3D-Printed Bone Implants

Before I started writing about additive manufacturing a number of years ago, I thought ceramics were only used to make fancy pottery. While it is used for this purpose as…

Finland: Studying the Impact of Medical Imaging Inaccuracies on End-Use Implants

Finnish researchers report on inaccuracies in the AM process chain, releasing their findings in ‘Cumulative Inaccuracies in Implementation of Additive Manufacturing Through Medical Imaging, 3D Thresholding, and 3D Modeling: A…

Characterization of Conventionally Manufactured & 3D Printed Acetabular Cup Implants

The use of 3D printed porous titanium implants in the orthopaedics field is growing, as they feature a similar design to components manufactured with traditional methods, but have a better…

Evonik Launches FDM PEEK Filament for Implants

PEEK polyether ether ketone is a high-performance thermoplastic with high continuous service temperatures, strength, and low flame smoke and toxicity. Due to this, it is an oft sought material by…

Researchers Develop Workflow for Repeatable Fabrication of PMMA Craniofacial Implants

While 3D printed patient-specific implants (PSIs) are helpful in craniofacial surgeries, it’s not always a practical option due to high costs and, as a research team from Switzerland’s University Hospital…
