3D modeling and virtual surgery is becoming more mainstream for pre-operative surgical planning and intraoperative referencing during surgery. We have used this technology extensively in the craniofacial arena to aid in the reconstruction of congenital and traumatic defects in children. It has proven invaluable in reducing operative time, managing surgical team assignments and in preparing for surgical planes of separation of bone, soft tissue and organs in our successful separation of ischiopagus conjoined twins. 

Methods: CT scan data was translated into a 3D digital environment which allowed for extensive pre-operative study of shared anatomy to understand how to best separate the infants and then reorient vital organs, skin, bones, muscle and tissue to ensure each girl’s survival following the operation. An online virtual surgery was performed several months before the actual surgery with all team members and this was stored as a dynamic pdf file for future reference. 3D printed stereolithic anatomical models were produced for tangible visualization of the anatomy, and was present in the operating room as a reference guide. 

Results: The 3D models allowed us to plan soft tissue needs for reconstruction, the planes of bone separation, and to anticipate blood flow various organs (colon, bladder, internal female genitalia) and allocate shared organs. This shortened the time of the procedure, as well as contributed to zero flap, bone, wound or stoma related problems.

With the maturation of 3D printing technology, we are now able to create preop surgical models for planning and simulation at very affordable price points. This opens up the clinical applications for this technology as it is no longer limited to just the complex surgeries. We have found that even for simple operations, there is substantial benefit of 3D printed models for the surgical team, including students, nurses, and trainees. Alexis will discuss the benefits but also the limitations of this technology and will give an outlook on the future of clinical 3D printing.

As Additive Manufacturing increasingly moves from Lab to Production scale, the infrastructure requirements change. GE is investing in 100's of machines that run simultaneously, Nike does 1000's of prints a month. To manage these operations the same way we did before - manually inspecting and editing every file, setting up, monitoring and improving every print - is untenable. Instead we can rely on increasingly sophisticated software automation to drive these processes, saving time and money as well as increasingly reliability and safety. In no other manufacturing sector is the opportunity so apparent since additive manufacturing has a more complete digital thread than any other part of the shop floor.

The entire study of Supply Chain and Value Chain Co-ordination is based on the goal of achieving Mass Customization. Whether it is McDonald's or BMW - Mass Customization remains elusive because of the hurdles faced in the production and operations. Various value chain studies focus on how postponement, VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) etc can help companies achieve these goals.

With the advent of 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing, these goals seem rather reachable. With reduced inventories, and destination manufacturing - the fundamentals principles of value creation for the consumers or the market can, not only be achieved, but be mastered. This kind of destination manufacturing can also give new meaning to zero waste manufacturing. But the only way to achieve this can be with hightened coordination amongst the stakeholders of the manufacturing process and unlike traditional manufacturing, the stakeholders in an Additively Manufactured Product's supply chain can be competitors who need to work together because of the overlapping features or needs of this new technology.

Danfoss, as a global manufacturing leader in various different products and services faces this situation and our answer to these questions is through mastering the digitalization concepts (3D Printing and AM, Automation, AI, Simulation). However, being a heavy conglomerate in the field, the change is not swift neither is it easy. Join Nilay and discover the opportunities and obstacles of 3D Printing in the Value Chain.

Tissue engineering is an emerging field that develops artificial biological organ substitutes to address the shortage of donor organs for transplantations and provide tissue models for drug testing. One of the most fundamental challenges in the tissue engineering arena is to create functional vasculature that provides vital nutrition, oxygen and waste transport to the cells within the engineered tissue. Without proximity  to capillary network, cellular viability and function will be compromised within a very short time, especially in highly metabolic and large-scale tissue constructs To vascularize these engineered tissues, we have developed a prevascularization technique by using a rapid 3D bioprinting method. Multiple cell types mimicking the native vascular cell composition were encapsulated directly into hydrogels with precisely controlled distribution without the need of sacrificial materials or perfusion. With regionally controlled biomaterial properties the endothelial cells formed lumen-like structures spontaneously in vitro. In vivo implantation demonstrated the survival and progressive formation of the endothelial network in the prevascularized tissue. Anastomosis between the bioprinted endothelial network and host circulation was observed with functional blood vessels featuring red blood cells. With the superior bioprinting speed, flexibility and scalability, this new prevascularization approach can be broadly applicable to the engineering and translation of various functional tissues.

Consumer grade 3D printers and DIYers have been using generally available DLP projectors for stereolithography for years. Makers of professional grade printers have resorted to modifying off-the-shelf projectors to get better performance. Now, with Carbon’s introduction of CLIP, DLP has recaptured the interest and imagination of the 3D printing world. With origins in the broadcast and cinema industries, DLP has a unique nomenclature. This session will explain how DLP projectors are specified, what are available trade-offs, and how these trade-offs impact your 3D print results. Among other things, it will explain specs like uniformity, distortion, and contrast; demystify difference between ANSI contrast and FOFO contrast; and how throw distance may impact efficient, uniformity and distortion. It will cover the trade-offs and benefits when using wavelengths down to 365 nm and what the future holds at lower wavelengths.

Sustained release drug delivery systems (SRDDS) are devices or dosage forms that can deliver drugs continually to the blood for a day, a week or longer and thereby can uninterruptedly alleviate the symptoms of many chronic diseases. SRDDS reduce the frequency of dosing, minimize side effects, and free patients from night-time dosing, and relieve nurses from frequent dosing to hospitalized patients. In so doing, these delivery systems enhance the treatment outcome by enhancing compliance. Here, we are reporting a pilot study concerning the development and optimization of a platform technology for fabricating sustained release tablets (SRTs) of prescription and nonprescription drugs using state-of-the-art 3D printing (3DP) technology.

Our preliminary studies support the feasibility of modifying existing pharmaceutical additives and using them in printing SRTs, and demonstrated that, by computerized redesigning and rearranging of a given polymeric substance, we can prepare pharmaceutical products with an array of release profiles.

Cognitive systems are quickly becoming an important part of our lives, from smartphones to self-driving cars just to name a few. The idea behind these systems is to relief us from tedious routine tasks in order to give more time for creative and enjoyable work.

However, in CAD we are still in the age of manual labor, where the user is solely responsible to define shape of the design components. Afterwards, the created design is usually validated using CAE tools. If the design doesn't handle the anticipated loads, it needs to be modified and the process is repeated again until all requirements are met. This iterative process can take weeks to complete, requires a lot of man hours and most importantly, does not guarantee optimal results!
ParaMatters Inc. created CogniCAD in order to help engineers to achieve optimal designs leveraging from state-of-the-art algorithms and cloud computing. Most recent developments in fields of generative design and digital manufacturing are about to change the way we create new things. Automatic design optimization allows generating extremely efficient structures and meta-materials for a wide range of engineering applications, while Additive Manufacturing(AM) allows bringing these designs into reality. The technology developed by ParaMatters allows automatic generation of superior designs for direct Additive Manufacturing within tens of minutes up to several hours.

In this presentation, a unique cognitive cloud-based generative design platform which compiles lightweight structures and meta-materials (lattices) by demand, as well as simplifies and shortens the design-to-additive manufacturing process, will be presented by covering the following three topics: 

  1. How to generate unique meta-materials (lattices) with predefined properties and performance.
  2. How to generate optimal topology designs with superior performance for Additive Manufacturing.
  3. How to generate unique optimal meso-structural designs, which combine general topology and meta-materials, for Additive Manufacturing.

Our group of Chemson managed to develop formulations of PVC to be able to be processed by 3D printers – 3D VinylTM and believed to be the first of its kind. PVC as polymer provides performances, which are advantageous over other polymers compared to generally used ones for additive manufacturing. These are for example an outstanding resistance to weathering, intrinsic fire stability, no risk for hydrolytic degradation and tailorable technical parameters. On the top, there are already existing established product recycling processes for PVC and this polymer shows strong interlayer cohesion when processed with the right printing parameters.

There are many misconceptions that have developed around 3D metal printing, leading to designers trying to use it as a rescue for bad designs – this simply won’t work. 3D metal printing is much more complicated than 3D plastic printing and other design processes, requiring a different set of skills and deeper understanding of the process. Understanding the nuances of this technology is essential to creating a design that won’t fail during the build process. 

The first step is knowing when 3D metal printing is the correct design process. 3D metal printing is well suited for the creation of parts that have complex geometries that are unachievable by other processes. 3D metal printing is also ideal for lightweight and high-strength parts. However, it is important to note that if a design can be CNC machined, it probably should. CNC machining still has advantages in speed and cost.

Next the session will share practical design, such as limitations on walls, gaps and holes, when to implement bridges and overhangs, and more. Zakary will provide you with the necessary tools to identify if 3D metal printing is right for creating the part they are designing for and common design mistakes to avoid.

You’ve heard the hype that “soon” consumers will 3D print their own products at-home or in-store on-demand, but will it be a reality anytime soon? Retailers are struggling to stay profitable in the wake of rapid e-commerce market share gains, showrooming, rising expenses and a consumer priority on anything innovative– new design, new technology, and new brands. Consumers of all ages, wait until the last minute to shop for tomorrow’s events, so why aren’t more stores and brands exploring last mile delivery of products made on-demand? Shouldn’t mass retail be attracted to the tremendous cost savings of a zero-inventory strategy? What will it really take for on-demand 3D print to disrupt retail? Tracy will explore the top five areas holding 3D Printing from tipping at retail:

• Right Fit CPG Designs
• Skilled Labor Gap
• Duplicatable Manufacturing & Finishing Model
• Full Retail Integration
• Materials & Testing
