CREAT3D showcase the use of desktop 3D printing for medical device applications at Med Tech Innovation Expo 2015.
CREAT3D (www.desktop3dprinter.com), the independent specialist in desktop 3D printers will be showcasing the desktop 3D printing technology at Med Tech Innovation Expo 2015, from 29th to 30th April at Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
3D printing is being used in both the design and manufacture of products, in fields such as engineering, product design and architecture. The process allows the development of unconventional shapes and geometries that are not available through traditional fabrication methods. The use of desktop 3D printers is not about replacing existing manufacturing processes but about enhancing the product design process and creating an environment to foster product innovation.
The technology is widely used within the medical technology sector to create individual components, prototypes and models for product development, proof of concept and product form, fit and function testing. In particular, desktop 3D printing is particularly apt for prototype and design development, as design iterations can be quickly and easily produced, at a very low cost.
CREAT3D is an independent specialist in desktop 3D printers and handheld 3D scanners, with 3D printers at this desktop level, ranging from approximately £800 to £5,000 in price.
