Pass Type: Conference Pass (Paid)

3D Printing is transitioning from being a technology used primarily for prototyping to one that is increasingly relied upon in production applications. Many 3D printers require you use their materials, but is that entirely realistic in the medical device manufacturing world? By reverse engineering the process, it is possible to use high performance materials developed for all major 3D printing platforms. These materials will advance 3D printing from prototype to industrial, functional applications.

Topics covered include:
  • Understanding the technology to print with thermosets, a broad class of materials including polyurethanes, silicones and epoxies
  • Going beyond prototyping to durable and functional manufactured parts
  • Considerations for switching from 3DP to injection molding to straight up manufacturing
