Last week, there was only one place to be for the 3D printing industry: the Materialise World Summit. A two-day event hosted in Brussels by Materialise, it invited attendees to think beyond together about the future of 3D Printing. So what did we learn and what were the key takeaways?
Researchers at the University of Kragujevac have proposed a new, non-invasive 3D methodology to assess scoliosis, in which spine measurements can be performed by limiting radiation exposure and human intervention.
After the excitement of Day One of the Materialise World Summit, it was going to be difficult to top the experience on Day Two. But expectations were definitely met with some really informative, as well as moving presentations in the Healthcare Session, and a stellar panel discussion entitled "Are We Prepared for an Additive Future?" in the AM Session.
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for – today is the day when the Materialise World Summit 2017 kicked off, and what a start! In case you missed out, here is an overview of the highlights from Day One.
Patient satisfaction is the ultimate goal of any orthopaedic surgeon performing a lower limb joint replacement. When the patient is shown to be satisfied with the results of their hip or knee arthroplasty; increased mobility, reduction in pain and consequent improvements in their quality of life, the surgeon can be satisfied that they have improved the life of their patient.
3D printing service bureaus receive orders from customers daily. But before these orders get printed, the design files need to be converted to STL, be repaired, get their printability checked and the customer needs to be provided with a quote. This takes a lot of time.
Even though healthcare has come a long way over the past century, there are still patients with unique and complex conditions that doctors find themselves challenged by Dr. Jonathan Morris at the Mayo Clinic has been using 3D Printing to push the boundaries of modern healthcare, from visualizing patient anatomies in 3D to surgery guided by precise anatomical models. Hear him speak at the Materialise World Summit to discover what the future of healthcare could look like – and how Mayo Clinic is already making that future a reality.

The Henry van de Velde Awards are given by Design Flanders every year in Belgium to honor the best design of the year. And it’s only logical that an awards ceremony celebrating good design should have a uniquely designed trophy! Design Flanders turned to us to create twelve trophies for the winners of 2016.
