The Prototype Development and 3D Print Lab at the Applied Research Institute of the University of Central Florida is actively involved in advancing the state-of-the-art of 3D printing. The Institute is developing novel approaches to many areas of application in 3D printing including composite structure approaches to create tunable mechanical properties within 3D printed materials, deformation based additive manufacturing to reduce print time and material use, 3D printed optical waveguides and acoustic arrays. This lecture will review some of the technological advances and application areas in medical simulation, pre-surgical planning, patient specific medical device design and augmented medical devices. Mr. Stubbs will have 3D printed models and materials available to view and discuss.
