Application of 3D Printing Technology for Medical Device Engineering

There are many desktop 3D printer offerings on the market, at reasonable price points, that can produce high quality, quick-turn parts perfect for many medical device engineer applications including component prototyping, fixturing and jigs, anatomical modeling, and more. Join John Foody, manufacturing engineer, Corvia Medical, as he provides examples of how their company has incorporated fused filament fabrication (FFF) and stereolithography (SLA) printers into their everyday workflow. Differences in these technologies are examined to highlight the strengths each technology offers for various projects of a medical device engineer.
