EOS Formiga P110
Maximum product dimensions: 200 x 250 x 330 mm (7.9 x 9.8 x 13 in)
Technology: Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
Materials: Various polymers such as nylon, TPE, polyamide, alumide, and more
- High dimensional and geometric precision
- No support structures required, allowing maximal surface finish
- Capable of producing large quantities of parts in a single print
Once the printing process is finished, the manufacturing bin containing the parts is removed and installed here. A pneumatic system is activated and the parts exit through the tank’s removable bottom. The parts will then be cleaned in order to obtain a smooth finish.
This anatomical model of a human foot was made of PA12 nylon and manufactured using SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) technology.
With no support structure required, devices like this wrist immobilization splint can be easily manufactured with our high-precision machine.
This experimental plantar orthosis was 3D printed using flexible polymeric powder. Its lattice structure makes it light to wear and efficient in absorbing impact.
Using Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology, the AON3D M2 3D is impressive both in terms of materials it can print and its maximum print volume. With its dual independent printheads and a high-temperature build chamber and bed, the M2 can manufacture parts using the most efficient polymers available.
Maximum product dimensions: 454 x 454 x 640 mm (18 x 18 x 25 in)
Tool heads: Dual independent tool heads allow you to design parts using multiple materials, such as soluble supports, or quickly switch between two different nozzle sizes.
Materials: Designed to print aerospace-grade thermoplastics, including PEEK, PEKK, Ultem™, carbon fiber filled variants, etc.
Combining Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology and Markforged’s unique Continuous Carbon Fiber reinforcement (CFF) technology, this machine introduces innovation into additive manufacturing. In addition to printing nylon parts with interesting mechanical properties, the Markforged MarkTwo can be used to reinforce printed parts with continuous carbon fiber, kevlar, fiberglass, or HSHT fiberglass (High-Strength High-Temperature fiberglass).
CAD software – Fusion 360
Fusion 360 strikes a balance between engineering and 3D design. This user-friendly, versatile software integrates design, testing, and fabrication into a single process. A new and simplified approach to parametric modeling, Fusion 360 is used at Topmed to generate complex surface structures.
CAD software – Inventor
Inventor is Autodesk’s 3D modeling software. This technical drawing software provides mechanical design and product simulation tools, including parametric modeling. We use it as complementary to the Solidworks suite
Rectification software – Adobe Illustrator
Adobe Illustrator is a vector graphics editor. Part of the Adobe software family, the Illustrator complements Photoshop, but can also be used independently of it. The Illustrator offers powerful vector drawing tools, and its vector graphics images consist of curves generated by mathematical formulas.
Rectification software – Adobe Photoshop
Photoshop has become the standard in bitmap or raster graphics image editing. Raster editors revolve around editing pixels, whereas vector editors, such as Adobe Illustrator, revolve around editing lines and shapes.
Rectification software – MSoft (TechMed 3D)
MSoft is the missing link in 3D scanning. It is the bridge between technology and your needs. MSoft offers an easy and quick way to obtain 3D files that you can optimize, modify, carve, or 3D print.
Rectification software – Rodin4D Neo
The Rodin4D Neo CAD/CAM software allows the rectification of 3D digital forms for orthopedic devices.
This software makes it possible to manufacture devices of the following type:
- Orthoses for upper and lower limbs
- Protection helmets and cranial orthoses (plagiocephaly)
- Devices for multiple handicaps (seat braces, standing devices, etc.)
Rectification software – Canfit 3D (Vorum)
The Canfit™ CAD software allows for quick design of all types of custom prosthetic and orthotic devices. The complete integrated Vorum CAD/CAM solution for prosthetics and orthotics includes 3D scanners, computer-aided shape modification software, and automated carvers.
Scanner – Creaform
The Creaform Health Care Partner 3D scanner is a great device for health care and 3D body measurement applications. This scanner comes with very fast shape acquisition and high accuracy functionalities. It generates 3D data that can be used to fabricate customized and comfortable devices.
The Health Care Partner 3D scanner is a great alternative to traditional, tiresome, and messy measurement methods like plaster casts.
Sensors – Integrated Analytical Platform
We are developing an integrated analytical platform for clinical orthotists. The platform is based on existing systems that are adapted and developed, and it has an integrated user interface that allows easy operation and interpretation of data. The platform consists of anatomical, postural, and biomechanical assessment tools which are used simultaneously to evaluate the efficacy of orthopedic equipment.
Pressure Sensors – Walkways
The Body Pressure Measurement System (BPMS) can help you identify high-risk pressure areas, screen pressure ulcers, and monitor the progression and treatment of wound ulceration. The BPMS ensures accurate measurement of location and magnitude of peak pressures without altering the support surface characteristics.
Inertial Sensors for Motion Analysis – XSENS
Highly accurate, small and lightweight development kit with wireless 3D human motion trackers. Used in a body area network, this portable and discreet wireless system is ideal for developing customized wearable solutions.
