3D printing may sound like something from a galaxy far, far away, but the technology has been around for quite some time. Throughout the years, scientists from all over the world have printed everything; from small food items to large scale houses, and in the medical industry, 3D printing is playing a key role in bettering both treatment, outcome, and overall patient satisfaction. 3D printing is providing a range of new possibilities for cost efficient production where less resources actually give you better results.
”One of the many advantages of 3D printing is that you can test your ideas quickly – and if they don’t work, you can easily change them”, explains Philip Firouzian. As 3D Printing Production Assistant at Ossiform, he is on a mission to develop and optimize their line of unique bone implants and scientific models. But in fact, it doesn’t really matter what you are printing. The technology is basically the same whether you are printing minor parts or major projects. You design the model, choose the material, and print.
