First 510(k) Clearance for Customized 3D-Printed Polymeric Cranial Implants

First 510(k) Clearance for Customized 3D-Printed Polymeric Cranial Implants | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
OPM’s polymer-based cranial implants, made with additive manufacturing technology from EOS, offer improved patient outcomes with reduced surgical costs.
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

 “EOS is clearly the leader for high-temperature industrial 3D printers,” says DeFelice. “We found their technology to be the only laser-sintering system in the world that can run high-temperature materials such as PEKK.” Since that selection, OPM has developed a long-term relationship with EOS. “They were with us when we explored this business opportunity, which ultimately led to the implementation of a P 800 system in our South Windsor, Connecticut facility around two years ago. We were a fairly early adopter of high-temperature laser fabrication, and in the context of the OsteoFab™ technology’s entire development cycle, we moved very quickly. EOS supported us throughout the process.”

 

Since 2000, DeFelice has built OPM’s business solely on the shoulders of PEKK. Aside from developing a variety of biomedical and industrial materials under the brand name OXPEKK®, OPM has produced a number of what he calls “bony void” replacements using their patented OsteoFabTM process, including cranial implants, mandibular and orbital augments, as well as spinal cages

Carlos Garcia Pando's curator insight, November 24, 2013 7:13 AM

The Cardiovascular Innovation Institute is now developing bespoke 3D printers for the job with a team of engineers and vascular biologists -- "if you do not understand the biology, you solve only half the problem" explains Williams. Though for now those printers are focusing on replicating the parts, the plan is to print the whole in one go in just three hours, with a further week needed for it to mature outside of the body. Certain parts will need to be printed and assembled beforehand, including the valves and the biggest blood vessels. "Final construction will then be achieved by bioprinting and strategic placement of the valves and big vessels," says Williams

New material for extrusion 3d printers: Wood Composite Filament Laywoo-D3

3D print in wood! Available for purchase at: https://www.inventables.com/technologies/wood-composite-filament-laywoo-d3
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Nice idea. Using PLA and wood looks like highly recyclable and biodegradable.

 

Laywoo-D3 is a 3D printer filament that is a mixture of 40% wood with a polymer binder. This material can be printed on most 3D printers that use ABS or PLA filament. The filament behaves similar to PLA and can be printed at temperature from 175C to 250C. The material color is affected by the temperature, so tree ring like affects can be simulated by adjusting the temperature during printing.

The material smells and behaves just like wood. Finished prints can be cut, sanded and painted like standard wood products.

Google, Apple, Microsoft, Fakebook, Dropbox, and others are all competiting to take over everything. Ive my email with Gmail but my hardware is Apple, they no longer want to play nice.

UCSD Students test a DMLS manufactured rocket engine, their own design

UCSD Students test a DMLS manufactured  rocket engine, their own design | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Students to test one-of-a-kind, 3D-printed rocket engine
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

To build the engine, students used a proprietary design that they developed. The engine was primarily financed by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. and was printed on Co-Cr allow on an EOS Laser sintering Machine by Illinois-based GPI Prototype and Manufacturing Services on a EOS M Machine.

This is the first time a university has produced a 3D-printed liquid fueled metal rocket engine, according to the students, who are members of the UC San Diego chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space.

A new 3D printing technology employs tungsten material

Two companies have collaborated to bring a new 3D printing technology and a new material to the commercial marketplace. ExOne Company (www.exone.com), which manufactures and sells 3D printing equipment, and 3D printing service bureau, ‘rapid prototype + manufacturing (rp+m)’, announced the result of their partnership to bring 3D printed tungsten to the medical imaging market via the M-Flex 3D Printing System.

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

“3D printed bonded tungsten is a great solution for radiation shielding because the M-Flex can create complex shapes for these applications that would be difficult to create with conventional methods of manufacturing,” said Rick Lucas, ExOne’s CTO in a release. “Our collaboration with rp+m demonstrates the power of ExOne’s strategy in engaging customers in the early stages of the materials development process, yielding direct applications in new markets.

Here are some of the more common mistakes people have encountered while using rapid prototyping to develop new parts.

Misleading headline again: they claim 3D-Printing of Medical Implants while it is about SCAFFOLDS | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Researchers have discovered that a naturally-occurring compound can be incorporated into three-dimensional (3-D) printing processes to create medical implants out of non-toxic polymers. The compound is riboflavin, which is better known as vitamin B2.
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

In this study, the suitability of a mixture containing riboflavin (vitamin B2) and triethanolamine (TEOHA) as a novel biocompatible photoinitiator for two-photon polymerization (2PP) processing was investigated. 

Materials & methods: Polyethylene glycol diacrylate was crosslinked using Irgacure® 369, Irgacure 2959 or a riboflavin–TEOHA mixture; biocompatibility of the photopolymer extract solutions was subsequently assessed via endothelial cell proliferation assay, endothelial cell viability assay and single-cell gel electrophoresis (comet) assay. Use of a riboflavin–TEOHA mixture as a photoinitiator for 2PP processing of a tissue engineering scaffold and subsequent seeding of this scaffold with GM-7373 bovine aortic endothelial cells was also demonstrated. 

Results: The riboflavin–TEOHA mixture was found to produce much more biocompatible scaffolds than those produced with Irgacure 369 or Irgacure 2959. 

Conclusion: The results suggest that riboflavin is a promising component of photoinitiators for 2PP fabrication of tissue engineering scaffolds and other medically relevant structures (e.g., biomicroelectromechanical systems).

The Future of Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing promises to revolutionize the way we build things. Using new technologies like 3D printing and laser melting, traditional manufacturing processes, like forging, casting and machining, are being turned upside down.

 

With additive manufacturing complexity is free. We can now make lighter-weight, geometrically-optimized, metal parts that offer the same functionality as their traditionally machined counterparts, with little to no material waste
