The potential of 3D printing in the medical industry is still immeasurable. Even though, today, 3D printing for medical devices, personalized implants, and rapid medical prototyping is still in the early stages, there is growing interest from the medical community to create tailor-made products for a patient’s specific physiology, making it more effective than a mass-produced device.

 .

Today, patient-specific, 3D printed implants are already being successfully employed, such as for maxillofacial and neurosurgical 3D printed medical implants or 3D printed titanium implants to repair bone . With the emergence of this versatile technology, many academic researchers-turned-entrepreneurs have begun developing their own specialized systems to meet the demands of the healthcare system.

n 2015, at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), in Germany, five graduate students met during the course of their university project. While working on 3D printing for medical applications with high-performance polymers, they had trouble finding a […]
