ProJet MJP 3D Printers Micro 3D Print Middle Ear Prostheses to Bring Music to the Ears of Hearing Loss Sufferers

ProJet MJP 3D Printers Micro 3D Print Middle Ear Prostheses to Bring Music to the Ears of Hearing Loss Sufferers

Using a 3D Systems ProJet MJP high-resolution 3D printers, Potomac was able to get the very small, precise geometries needed with tight tolerances. 3D printing is frequently in the news as a process for manufacturing prostheses to replace lost limbs. It’s an obvious choice, especially when combined with 3D scanning, because it allows designers to

Kindness, Surgical Skills and 3D Technologies Help Bring Back a Smile for Blessing Makwera

Kindness, Surgical Skills and 3D Technologies Help Bring Back a Smile for Blessing Makwera

It’s easy to be cynical about claims that technologies are “life-changing” when often they simply automate a daily routine. In the case of 3D printing, however, it’s not just marketing hype. Ask Blessing Makwera. After a tragic accident when he was 9, the 23-year-old Zimbabwean man now has the facial structure through which he can

Marines Send 3D Printers to Combat Zone to Fix Gear Faster

Marines Send 3D Printers to Combat Zone to Fix Gear Faster

Three years into the coalition fight against Islamic State militants, the battlefield remains fairly austere, without the major forward bases or large unit presence common to previous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Into this environment, the Marine Corps has quietly deployed several 3D printers, hoping to highlight the value of the emerging technology to speed up supply
