Furthermore, those prosthetics may well have been 3D printed with unusual properties that traditional manufacturing could not achieve, for example having different density in different areas.
The need to manufacture customised parts for the medical field has put pressure on the additive manufacturing industry to develop further by innovating with materials, processes and software.
Polygonica can cut the production time for prosthetics through its ability to rapidly and automatically fix complex STL models.
Renishaw AM250 laser melting machines use Polygonica functionality to make dental frameworks and medical implants and prostheses in a range of metals with highly complex geometries.
Polygonica solid modelling toolkit is integrated into the Renishaw dental manufacturing system to provide solid healing, Boolean operations, simplification, profile generation and offsetting.
