Download The March/April edition of 3D ADEPT Mag
To date, about a dozen end-use applications have already been identified in the healthcare industry. This is a big step for humanity considering where we come from, but a small step for users when we see the work that still needs to be done in terms of process standardization, education for more thoughtful use, and manufacturing for more reliable processes. There is definitely reason to be proud of, but the growing list of processes that need to be clarified, to be explained and to be enhanced somehow overshadows these milestones. Fortunately for us, we can play a modest role at this level: that of confronting, of making explicit, to better enlighten the stakeholders.
This healthcare edition of 3D ADEPT Mag provides an interesting look at the production of 3D-printed medicines, the digital manufacturing of 3D-printed medical devices, the development of implants or crowns with the appropriate materials, as well as the post-processing processes that evolve over time.
