Medical AM3DP Workgroup Header

The SME Medical Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing Workgroup collaborates to identify challenges, develop resources, and to facilitate changes to support anyone using the technologies for medical/biomedical applications. The workgroup members represent medical device manufacturers, clinicians, technology providers and more to provide a multiperspective approach to all projects and discussions.

Upcoming Meetings

May 11, 2017 | David L. Lawrence Convention Center | Pittsburgh

Annual Strategy Meeting
June 19-20, 2017 | 3D Systems Healthcare Technology Center | Littleton, Colorado

Current Projects

Content Development
Primarily at the annual Medical Manufacturing Innovations program at the RAPID conference, the workgroup through review and recruitment develops in-depth sessions to address the latest developments.

File Format:
With an evolving file format, identifying the needs specific to clinical needs consistent with patient privacy concerns and best practices, the work group is identifying needs, existing standards and opportunities to integrate into printer files.

Standards & Quality Assurance:
From the collection of imaging data to use of parts, devices and models, the workgroup is identifying the current state and identifying gaps as the foundation for further development.


  • Students: To share the excitement and possibilities of additive manufacturing with students at every level, this effort will identify opportunities, develop tools and templates, and provide advice to connect with both K-12 and college students.
  • Professional (formerly Awareness Project): With many additive manufacturing/3D printing users (i.e., clinicians) new to manufacturing, the workgroup is gathering existing information into a publishable document that helps navigate the use cases and connects to existing standard and regulatory information.

Building Evidence for 3D Printing Applications in Medicine: Connect all key stakeholders (e.g., clinical, scientific, medical device) to share best practices and identify effective methodologies and reliable protocols to increase impact of all studies being conducted. More
