UK start-up Mitt is asking us to reconceptualize the idea of what limb replacement really means. By putting function alongside form and leveraging the freedom of design that 3D printing offers, they’ve created a prosthetic arm that is functional, customizable, comfortable and, most importantly, accessible. And it’s this approach that saw them crowned Disrupter of the Year at this year’s London Business Awards.
Point-of-Care 3D Printing has many benefits, from quick turnaround time during pandemics to clinical quality to research and innovation. Discover what experts who have set up these in-house medical services have to say on how to start or scale up 3D planning and printing in hospitals.
Nesting parts to be 3D printed in an optimal way provides many advantages, most of which enable a major industry goal —waste minimization. Find out our top 4 ways that nesting with the Magics Sinter Module reduces waste.
Machine monitoring will bring more data into AM users’ hands than ever before. Thanks to our initiative with other industry leaders, we’re bringing this technology to the masses to help advance production in 3D print factories. In this blog, we touch on the top five advantages of machine monitoring in AM facilities.
We’re celebrating Materialise’s 30th anniversary this October by looking into Metal 3D Printing technology and how it’s evolved at Materialise over the years. Learn more about our alloys, Metal Competence Center, and initiatives to make Metal AM the technology of choice for tomorrow.
As multi-use spaces grow in popularity, the architecture department at TU Delft decided to work towards a solution to the bothersome noise frequencies that often accompany these areas. Discover how they teamed up with Materialise to build 3D-printed acoustics panels.
Baobab Express, an enterprise launched in 2014 to create a safe, low-cost, and dependable method of transportation for the inhabitants of Benin, has become the first company in West Africa to receive the prestigious B Corporation certification!
We introduced polypropylene (PP), a commonly used plastic in manufacturing, to our 3D printing material lineup in 2018. Find out how incorporating this flexible-yet-tough material into your production leads to major benefits.
In February 2019, Materialise was recognized as a Factory of the Future, but we didn’t get here alone. Collaboration is at the core of everything we do, and we even take it a step further with co-creation: truly pushing the limits to overcome challenges together. Our devotion to working closely with others is clear with the launch of our advisory service, Mindware.
When it comes to printing SLS and MJF parts, creating an optimized build platform is crucial, and AM software can have a big hand in helping operators do so. Discover why nesting parts as quickly and effectively as possible is essential and how you can achieve it in your production.
