Simulation of Additive Manufacturing for medical applications – Current capabilities, benefits and open challenges

Patrick Mehmert

by Patrick Mehmert, Product Manager Additive Manufacturing, Simufact Engineering GmbH

Simulation of additive manufacturing processes gets more and more powerful and widespread in industrial applications. Also for medical applications the simulation of the production before the real print offers valuable benefits. Manufacturing problems can be identified in advance and countermeasures developed before a print fails. For geometrical critical applications the distortion prediction and compensation is very helpful.

3D Bioprinting: use of Polycaprolactone in clinical and research biomedical applications

Andrea Del Fattore

duo presentation by

Andrea Del Fattore, Head of the Bone Physiopathology Group, Bambino Gesù Children’s Hospital, Rome, Italy

& Luca Borro, 3D Specialist, 3D Biomedica Advanced Modeling and Printing Technician, Bambino Gesù Children’s Hospital, Rome, Italy

Bioprinting is a technology that could revolutionize the biomedical field. It has already been used to engineer constructs that mimic aspects of the anatomical and structural complexity, allowing the production of perfectly functional and “biologically active” patient-specific parts.

One of the most important challenges of bioprinting is the identification of biomaterials that have adequate biocompatibility and biodegradability features to be used in clinical use in humans.

In this session we will describe some applications of 3D Bioprinting of Polycaprolactone in clinical applications and in research contexts.

A novel 3D printing platform and materials for bone scaffolds

Alessandro Patelli

by Alessandro Patelli, University of Padova

The presentation will cover the developments of the H2020 FAST project focused on the development of a novel 3D printer able to perform gradients while printing and at the same time to functionalize the surface by atmospheric pressure plasma. Coatings and novel nano composites materials based on PEOT/PBT will be presented.

Bioactive Polymer Compound and Cold Atmospheric Plasma in Advanced Manufacturing of hybrid materials. The experience of H2020 Project FAST

Marco Scatto

by Marco Scatto, Polymer Scientist- Technology Transfer Expert, Nadir srl, Italy

The project activities aims to integrate mechanical, bio-active, chemical surface properties in the single AM process.

This integration will be obtained by the hybridisation of the 3D polymer printing with melt compounding of nanocomposites with bio-functionalised fillers directly in the printing head and atmospheric plasma technologies during the printing process itself.

Dental Multi Material 3D Jetting

multi material

by Kateryna Filippovych, Process lead, Océ, a Canon company

Imagine 3D printed full color artificial teeth for permanent use. Why not? This question we asked ourselves two years ago. And our scientific curiosity resulted in first multi material and -color 3D jetted tooth model.
Driving vision is to bring dentistry on a new level of multi-material and colourful 3D printing.
This presentation will provide some insights on the unique jetting possibilities of biocompatible dental resins in combination with 3D workflow software.
