Program Overview

Collaboration for the Future of Medicine Starts Here

As one of earliest adopters of additive manufacturing and 3D printing, the medical community has seen transformational use cases by leveraging medical imaging for precision medicine and patient-specific applications, exploiting the design freedoms to design innovative devices, and optimizing production efficiencies to create complex structures. From medical devices to point-of-care manufacturing, biofabrication, and dental, the conference program is content-rich with data-driven case studies, interactive panels, and technical sessions, empowering you with 3D innovations and manufacturing solutions for your specific needs.

Curated by our expert Event Advisory Committee, discussions include:

  • Material selection considerations: What type of skin contact is needed? What will be the biocompatibility needed? Will it need to be sterilized? How do colorants and post processing impact final biocompatibility?
  • Regulatory and compliance: What’s the difference between custom and patient-specific devices? Do both need clearance? Are there are their differences between countries? Do the same requirements apply at a manufacturer, dental lab, and hospital?
  • Supply chain and distributed manufacturing: What do future approaches look like? How can you manage qualification and the potential variation within your supply chain? Where is the benefit ratio, when do you do it, when do you not?
  • A speed round of short case studies AND select the best application by voting live at the event.
