No Bones About It: Materialise Has Taken On a Mammoth 3D Printed Reconstruction Project

No Bones About It: Materialise Has Taken On a Mammoth 3D Printed Reconstruction Project

Materialise is in the middle of an SLA 3D printing project of epic proportions…one might even call it a mammoth job. The Belgium-based company is creating a life-size, 3D printed reconstruction of the first mammoth skeleton ever displayed in Western Europe. Fittingly, Materialise is using its extra-large Mammoth 3D printers – the only machines it […]

3D Printed Drone Saves Thousands of Crops per Year

3D Printed Drone Saves Thousands of Crops per Year

The corn borer is a pest that attacks maize stalks, causing the loss of thousands of crops every year. Rather than drenching said crops with chemicals, a company called Soleon is taking a natural approach – the SoleonAgro drone, which distributes trichogramma wasp eggs. The trichogramma wasp eats corn borers, offering an eco-friendly pest control […]

What Does BASF’s Investment in Materialise Mean for the 3D Printing Industry?

What Does BASF’s Investment in Materialise Mean for the 3D Printing Industry?

Earlier on today BASF invested $25 million into Materialise. We speculated that perhaps BASF wanted to conquer the eyewear market because the potential of this market is so vast. We won’t sure what this investment means for both firms for many years. What is sure is that this partnership will have far-reaching consequences for 3D […]

Materialise and BASF Future Leaders in Customized 3D Printed Eyewear

Materialise and BASF Future Leaders in Customized 3D Printed Eyewear

The global eyewear market is a $180 billion market dominated by one company Luxottica. If we look at today’s deal whereby BASF is investing $25 million in Materialise we could see this as a deal to industrialize 3D printing for many products. But, given Materialise’s lead in eyewear, is this perhaps the entire play for […]

Using Patient-Specific 3D Printed Surgical Guides for Total Knee Replacement

Using Patient-Specific 3D Printed Surgical Guides for Total Knee Replacement

While surgery has always, ultimately, been about the patient, it hasn’t always been patient-centered. Historically, patients have not had an easy time of understanding exactly what their surgery entails and have often been treated as if they were ancillary to the surgical problem presented. This can’t all be blamed on uncaring medical staff, as most […]

Materialise Introduces New Virtual Surgical Pre-Planning System and 3D Printed Guides for Shoulder Surgery

Any surgery has its challenges, but Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty (RSA) and Anatomic Total Shoulder Arthroplasty (TSA) present their own unique difficulties. The incisions are small, resulting in limited visibility; the Glenoid cavity is deep in the surgical window; the area doesn’t have landmarks the surgeons can rely on for alignment. That’s a problem because these […]
