Custom 3D-printed casts from 3D scan data
Published on March 10, 2021
Key Software Capabilities
- Lattice structures
- Design automation
Patient-specific 3D printed casts and braces offer many advantages when treating bone fractures and are now becoming more affordable with advances in additive manufacturing technologies.
In this nTop Live, Sam Kratky, Application Engineer at nTop, shows you how to create streamlined processes that automate the design of custom braces. Using 3D scan data as input, she creates a workflow that generates strong, lightweight, and aesthetically pleasing wrist braces that conform to each patient’s anatomy.
Watch and learn how to:
- Import 3D scan data in nTop and use them as input to drive custom designs
- Build automated and reusable design processes that streamline your workflows
- Create conformal lattices that increase the quality of life of patients
