Intensively more digital more physical: 3D printing medical designs for medical education

3D printing holds tremendous potential to reshape education and practices of design, medical, science and business sectors. Participants will gain an understanding of the advantages of using 3D printing in medical education. Some activities we’ll explore in this workshop include: hands-on use of parametric software to enable participants to grasp how data from a 3D body scan can be used to customize medical design elements–outputting geometrically accurate models for successful 3D printing.

We will also explore how to utilize open-source 3D resources including NIH’s recently launched 3D Print Exchange, outputting 3D models from microscale to macroscale and even 4D printing of self-assembly components.

This workshop is designed to suit a range of participant interests and experience levels and is directed to maximize hands-on collaborative explorations in combination with critical points of discussion. For maximum engagement, please attend with a personal laptop pre-loaded with specified demo software.
