Process for Ordering a 3D Printed Device
The process starts with a digital file of
the residual limb which can either be
modified by you or by one of our skilled
technicians. The modified file is then
run though another software program
to prepare the file for printing.
Pros to 3D Printing
Once the digital model is created and modified it can be duplicated time and time again with out the worry of slight changes occurring from the typical fabrication process, essentially making them carbon copies of the original.
It is easy to make last minute changes to any area needed and accuracy can be within fractions of a millimeter. Very useful with global reductions to avoid boney prominences.
The storage of digital files allows you to never have to “not have a mold”. There would be no more need to either incur the cost of a larger facility for storage.
Once a file is sent, the 3D printers will for the most part run independently allowing for better time management. The time savings can be used to focus on other more profitable areas of the company.
