Additive manufacturing presents many exciting opportunities for the Medtech and wearables space, from rapid prototyping to final certified production. However, this… [read more]
3D printing of medical devices is currently not explicitly addressed by medical devices regulation and will not be addressed specifically in impending new medical devices regulation either. This presentation will discuss the legal and regulatory requirements for 3D printing of medical devices under current and future law.

“The regulatory perspective: benefits and limits of 3D printed drugs” – Presented by Dr. William Shang, Johnson & Johnson. 3DP technology is already up and running in many areas. The future definitely looks promising when considering the idea of 3DPs, but are the regulatory agencies ready for such technology? The presentation will reflect the regulators… [read more]
In 2006 a 3D Lab was setup at the Radboud University Medical Centre in order to facilitate the implementation of technical innovations in 3D imaging and 3D Printing into daily clinical practice. The general goal is to improve patient care and provide patient specific solutions.Especially the close cooperation between surgeons and engineers within the 3D… [read more]
“Legal Issues around 3D Printed Drugs” – Presented by Ann Vijverman, Dewallens & Partners Law Firm.In this presentation it will be analyzed whether and how 3D printed Drugs could fit within the actual legal framework concerning medicinal products: can the 3D printed drug qualify as an industrially prepared medicinal product; or as a magistral or… [read more]

Martin van Wezel, Designer, 3D Printer and Maker for e-Nable will speak about “The Powerful Impact of Open-Source Networks” at the 3D Medtech Printing Conference. Martin van Wezel will be co-presenting with Erik de Bruijn,Co-founder, Ultimaker.
Loss of permanent teeth is a particular challenge in children considering that alveolar bone growth is not yet complete and treatment approaches should adapt to the developmental changes in the oral region to have the potential for long-term survival. This could be realized via autotransplantation, which is a biological approach for tooth replacement in young… [read more]
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.
