“Challenges of 3D printed drill guides in dental implantology”, Presented by Daan Brons, 3D InnovationLab

3D printed drill guides are commonly used in dental implantology in a surgical environment. The process of fabricating those drill guides consists of the following general steps: 1) imaging, 2) processing, 3) printing. These processes are a source of problems. I propose an alternative to the heavily automated current methods. Continue reading ““Challenges of 3D printed drill guides in dental implantology”, Presented by Daan Brons, 3D InnovationLab”

“The challenges of medical 3D printing”, Presented by Maureen van Eijnatten, VU University Medical Center Amsterdam

Rapidly evolving 3D imaging, robotics, and material technologies are currently causing a paradigm shift in medicine towards personalized medicine. This lecture will give illustrate some of the current applications of 3D printing in the 3D InnovationLab of the VUmc. Furthermore, an overview will be provided of the research topics and the challenges that we face in the field of medical 3D printing.
