Medical Device Component Teardown: Test Your Savvy & Ask Your Questions

Steven Pollack (Senior Staff Research Scientist, Carbon)

Location: 208B

Date: Wednesday, February 6

Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Track: 3D Printing Innovation Summit

Vault Recording: TBD

While Additive Manufacturing has great promise in liberating the design and production of medical devices, it's not a cure-all. In this interactive roundtable session, an expert materials scientist will lead us in the teardown of various medical device examples and to identify which components make sense for 3D printing, and which don’t.

This interactive session will also show designers and engineers how they can rethink their design process using the availability of engineering-grade resins and/or biocompatible resins to speed up the design-to-production timeline.
