Innovation in smart manufacturing can come in a flash from a lightbulb moment, but those instances are few. More often than not, breakthroughs in technology, such as bioprinting, blockchain, cloud-based manufacturing and real-time production control, happen after years of careful study accompanied by painstaking, methodical work done sometimes in academic settings.

Using 3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM), in health care is on the rise, with the market expected to be worth nearly $26 billion by 2022. This growth goes well beyond just prototyping, as AM is already used throughout the industry to solve problems and improve care.
The field of health care is often considered to be one of the most dynamic. The speed at which innovation is occurring—from the way surgeries are performed, to the development of new therapies—is moving evermore rapidly.
Formlabs was founded by MIT researchers in 2011, when high-quality 3D printing was inaccessible for most. We’ve now shipped over 50,000 machines while cementing our mission to “expand access to digital fabrication, so anyone can make anything.”
DanaMedInc.’s Pathfinder ACL Guide is a biocompatible surgical device enabling surgeons to better reconstruct partially or fully torn anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) and reduce the risk of re-tearing.
Materials engineered for use with specific printers and qualified for verifiable repeatability and accuracy help ensure long-term mechanical properties ranging from heat resistance to biocompatibility.
If everyone were to stand in a single-file line, patients on the U.S. organ transplant waiting list would form a line over 70 miles long.
Mastercam, CAD/CAM software developed by CNC Software Inc., has made free training available to those looking to sharpen their skills. From now until June 30, 2020, users can sign up to take a full set of Mastercam core classes on Mastercam University.
Imre Patterson has a smile that lights up any room he walks into. Imre was born with a femoral discrepancy, causing one leg to be shorter than the other.
Additive manufacturing has become increasingly sophisticated in recent years, capable of producing orthopedic implants with complex lattice structures that further enables osseointegration.
