Expert Advice for the Medical & Prosthetics Industry
3D printing solutions to provide supplies to the medical
community increases drastically. Many creative and determined
heroes are turning to 3D printing to support the medical
community at this time to help combat the shortage of
THE HERO ARM
affordable, assistive devices that enhance the human
body. They have started by introducing the Hero Arm,
a stylish multi-grip bionic hand. Current upper limb
prostheses exist as hooks, grippers, or expensive
bionic hands, but Open Bionics are on a mission to
make beautiful bionic limbs more accessible.
the 3D face scan , allows you to create and customise a

3D PRINTED FACEMASKS
of the MakerBot Method family of printers. Normally printing bespoke or low volume or custom parts for customised

the first generations of busts created by Dr. Leoncini with
a Delta WASP 3D Printer, a previously unexpected 3D printing

recent years the idea of creating solutions for scoliosis with
3D printing has become increasingly concrete and credible.
We are now printing fully up and running with the WASP 2040 Pro and are very happy with it. It seems perfectly suited to printing covers for our bionic arms. Mainly the taller build volume is giving us more design freedom to fit user's with longer arms, but we're also very pleased with the print quality and speed of prints. It's quickly becoming our preferred way to produce covers over our traditional ‘cartesian’ machines.
