3D Printing Core

About

The 3D Printing Core, part of Medical Device Solutions, uses the Eden 260 and Connex 350 rapid prototyping systems (3D Printers) from Objet to manufacture prototype devices quickly, regardless of the complexity of the geometry. These machines have several key features that make them an ideal tool in the prototyping process:

  • High accuracy: 0.017” (40µm) horizontal resolution; 0.0006” (16µm) vertical resolution
  • Wide material selection: Objet supplies nearly a dozen resins; these can be blended to achieve 51 additional unique material combinations
  • Fast build times: Most parts are built within a few hours; same or next day turn-around is possible
  • Easy-to-clean parts: provides for short turn-around times, even when builds have numerous parts
  • Low maintenance: allows our engineers to focus their efforts on prototype design

Applications of rapid prototyped parts include:

  • Demonstration models
  • Functional prototypes
  • Surgical Planning models
  • Molds for elastomer molding
  • Building parts based on CT and MRI data, microscopy images and protein data bank files
