Objet’s 3D printers seem to be taking hold in various medical applications, according to information passed our way. Here are four interesting approaches:

  • Biorep Technologies creates tools for diabetes researchers and has created a “Pinch Valve” for indexing fluids and avoiding contamination of equipment and fluids, as well as a silicone membrane petri dish
  • Arch Day Design creates tiny objects that interlock inside arthroscopic surgery patients to guide the microscopic tools.
  • Ivivi Technologies uses Objet tech to rapidly create prototypes for a variety of non-invasive medical applications
  • Orchid Orthopedic Solutions uses 3D tech to rapidly develop new implant applications for the orthopaedic, dental and cardiovascular markets.

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has written over 8,000 stories on 3D printing at Fabbaloo since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!
