Aerospace and Bioscience Coalitions Enjoy 3D Printing Technology Overview at Stratasys Direct Manufacturing
On February 22, SCVEDC organized a visit for our aerospace and bioscience coalition members to Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, a leader in 3D printing and advanced manufacturing services. More than 30 attendees enjoyed an overview of nine technologies used in 3D printing for conceptualization, rapid prototyping, and even final parts production, as well as a tour of the facility to see a range of 3D printing technologies and materials in action.
Aerospace companies discovered a broad range of materials to produce lightweight, complex parts that eliminate the need for tooling, jigs, and assembly fixtures. Case studies and part samples demonstrated how 3D printing produces intricate parts and part consolidation, allowing multiple subassemblies to be combined into a single component.
Medical device and bioscience industry attendees learned about the latest advancements in 3D printing to create custom anatomical models from patient scans for pre-op surgery practice, medical training and patient education. In fact, the company’s breakthrough BIOMIMICSTM highly realistic 3D anatomical models allow physicians to access bone and heart models to simulate clinical procedures for improved patient outcomes, plus eliminating the need for animal and cadaver usage.
The event was a great learning experience for all attendees and provided a venue for industry peers to meet and discover new business connections.
