SME Video "Medical Applications of Rapid Prototyping" featuring Direct Dimensions

In conjunction with Juan Garcia of Johns Hopkins, we helped the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) produce a video showing the concepts of 3D imaging and rapid prototyping for fabricating custom prosthesis.

Click here to see the video.

The video highlights 3D scanning to help create prostheses and surgical guides, utilizing 3D technologies to aid medical illustration and even creating rapid prototypes with organic compounds such as tissue.
