In recent years, 3D printing technology is a leading high-tech. Not only is 3D printing used widely in manufacturing and protection of cultural relics but it’s also being continuously developed in the medical sector. The market potential for this technology is endless. Here are some details.
For customized surgical models or guides, 3D printing can be used.

To create a model of the medical procedure, you will need to perform three-dimensional modeling based off the CT/MRI data. The 3D printed medical model serves two main purposes. It allows doctors to visualize the three-dimensional structures of the surgical site prior to the procedure. This is particularly important for complex surgeries as it can help reduce risk and increase the likelihood of successful surgery.

Dentistry: 3D printing

Dentists and dental laboratories must consider the costs of restoration and treatment. To improve their efficiency and lower costs, many prescient laboratories and dental clinics have adopted digital dentistry technology. Recent years have seen dental restorations using software design become more popular. 3D printing and digital dentistry technology has combined to bring high precision, low costs, and high-quality dental data. This is in line with the established production chain for dental industries.

Medical device manufacturing using 3D printing

The manufacturing of medical devices is the same process as for other products. For design verification purposes, prototypes must be made during product development. In the medical field, metal 3D printing technology has expanded beyond prototypes. It can be used to produce complex surgical devices. The doctor will need to first extract the anterior cruciate ligament from the knee and then repair the damaged ligament. A sophisticated, special surgical instrument is required to assure accuracy and minimal invasiveness. Because the nickel-chromium–iron alloy that was used in manufacturing this surgical tool is difficult-to-process, it can be difficult to produce it using conventional machining techniques. This also means it is expensive and takes time. The use of metal 3D printer technology to manufacture is more appropriate in this instance.

Manufacturing medicine: 3D printing

3D printing technology has four main benefits for pharmaceuticals. The first is the possibility of personalizing active ingredients to create personalized medication plans. Layer-by-layer printing allows for different coatings to be tightly mixed with each other. This means that the highest dose of any substance can be put in one tablet. Patients can also swallow smaller or more tablets. Third, the shape can be personalized. 3D printing technology allows children with aversion to taking medicine to be printed out in interesting shapes. Fourth, 3D printing can make medicine more microstructured, increase the medication’s release, reduce side effects, and provide a better curative effect.
