Additive Manufacturing is creating a process to actually ‘engineer’ and ‘design’ an Ankle-Foot Orthotic for a specific patient. Different amounts or types of material can be printed to provide a specified stiffness and allow areas of flexibility, based on the patient presentation. This exciting technology opens up an entirely new tool box that the clinician can use to enhance patient outcomes.
Researchers at McGill have been given a federal grant in order to research improvements in technologies used during surgery. More than $1.6 million will be used to train students who are developing those technologies, which include Stratasys 3D Printers.
This winter, we had the opportunity to provide continued support for QuiETS, a team out of ETS competing in the SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge. The team approached our team of Applications Specialists with an all-new air intake design, looking to 3D Printing to create an end-use part rather than manufacturing it with traditional methods.
The surface quality of a 3D printed part is strongly influenced by the resolution of the STL file which it is processed from; therefore, it is essential to ensure that the procedure of exporting an STL file from the native CAD file is performed correctly. This week, we will be walking you through various settings for exporting optimized STL files for use with your Stratasys 3D Printer.
To hasten and sharpen that crucial decision-making, Synergy brought a Stratasys J750 3D Printer in-house to produce whole-product prototypes in full color, even with multiple materials, textures and gradients, in as little as a few hours. Read on to learn how the unmatched realism afforded by the J750 has elevated Synergy's design services.
Stratasys reinvents 3D Printing. Again. Introducing the Stratasys J75 3D Printer - a Polyjet-based printing platform that delivers unprecedented product realism, combining multi-material printing with true full-color capability for the most versatile 3D Printing platform on the market today.
