3D Printing Combines with Medical Implant Design Software

Finger implants can be made out of cobalt chrome or titanium using DMLS. These can be designed to allow varying levels of porosity to encourage bone in-growth into the implant structure.
Targeting medical, surgical, and orthopedic designers and manufacturers, C&A Tool and WITHIN have launched a patient-specific, metal-implant design and manufacturing program using EOS Direct Metal Laser-Sintering software to facilitate the creation of highly customized products that improve osseointegration or bone growth.

Industrial 3D Printing Takes a Spin

The father-son team of Kappius Components created a trailblazing rear hub/drive assembly unlike any other. Now they use additive manufacturing from EOS GmbH to build three of its components more cost-effectively, with shorter delivery times and inexpensive re-designs.

The Shape of Things to Come

Take a few moments to think about a future of new digital marketplaces where, instead of people simply shopping for products online, they instead design and build the exact products they want. Talk about mass customization.
