Recently, the Raise3D team received an urgent request for "mask-wearing connectors" from 36 hospitals, including Huashan and Ruijin hospitals in Shanghai. Even though there were only a handful of Raise3D employees on hand at the time, any available 3D printers were quickly put to work. By using the E2 printer, the average daily production of connectors can reach 1500 units, and these can be delivered on the very same day.
3D printing, also referred to as additive manufacturing, has ignited a revolution in several industries thanks to the quick and cost-effective production of 3D objects from digital models. With the rapid advancement of flexible manufacturing and innovations in Biomedical fields, 3D printing is now widely implemented for medical purposes, such as: implant designs, surgical planning and training, and prosthetics.
With Raise3D printers, filaments and iDeamaker slicing software Laboratoire 34 produces 3D printed dental models, resulting in increased accuracy and quick turnaround times.
The large build volume and reliability of Raise3D printers allows Persona to 3D print large full-scale bones & templates such as hipbones, spines, and skulls. Without any variation in scale, the 1:1 model provides the surgeon with an accurate model to work with and reference pre-surgery.
3D printed visuals and guides are increasing success rates with this life-saving procedure. "The Raise 3D printer is the most stable one among all I have tried. The print quality is really good. The surface features of the bone are all recovered in the printed model.”- Dr.Niu, Director of Orthopedics.
