Materialise Partners With Formlabs for Complete 3-D Printing Solution

December 4, 2017 — Materialise and Formlabs are collaborating to deliver a complete, cost-effective and easy-to-use solution for hospitals looking to start an in-house 3-D printing lab. The new offering combines the Materialise Mimics inPrint medical imaging software with Formlabs’ Form 2 professional-grade desktop 3-D printers. The components of this complete 3-D printing package facilitate the implementation of patient-specific care at an affordable price-per-print for quick return on investment.

The financial, educational and clinical benefits of 3-D anatomical models for communication and surgical planning have been documented and discussed for years. However, the perceived barriers to developing an onsite 3-D print lab, including setup costs and high costs per part, have deterred some hospitals from employing this emerging technology.

As the use of 3-D anatomical models rapidly progresses in the medical field, it has become a standard procedure and valuable tool for communicating complex surgical plans with patients. Once hospitals have adopted on-site 3-D printing, they are able to easily scale their operations as demand for anatomical models grows.
