Additive manufacturing

Type:
Basic educational workshop
Room:

Additive manufacturing technologies (also callled e.g. "3D-Printing") have been available since more than 30 years and first applications in medicine and especially orthopaedics and craniofacial surgery have been reported in the late 1980th. Recently, technological progress and the broad availability of different techniques for processing not only autoclavable and biocompatible polymers but also ceramics and different metal alloys such titanium, cobalt chrome or magnesium - or even 3D-bioprinting of e.g. living cartilage tissue – led to an exponential growth of interest and applications also in orthopaedics. Together with modern 3D-imaging, computer based reconstruction, planning and simulation techniques, additive manufacturing opened the door towards an efficient manufacturing of patient specific instruments and implants as well as novel therapy concepts. The goal of this workshop is to introduce into basics of additive manufacturing, techniques, materials and potentials. The workshop is conducted by specialists with many years of personal experience, providing examples from different perspectives. The workshop is ideal for clinicians and engineers who want to acquire or refresh knowledge about additive manufacturing technologies in clinical application and research.
