Every human is unique and that is why the solution for many problems related to people also needs a unique approach. This is valid in healthcare and in different fields of wellbeing as well. 3D modeling and 3D printing are exactly technologies that are suitable to deal with problems of customization .
The range of modeling software products, operating principles of 3D printers, characteristics of raw materials, and complexity of problems vary intensively, so our first task is to have a general overview on these topics .
Some typical applications that seem reasonable for a start-up company:
- Different small (PLA, or ABS) objects printed with a desktop FDM printer, such as fidget spinner, massage roller, customized medicine boxes
- Prototypes of braces (for broken bones, braces in dentistry, etc.) [4, 5]
With sufficient knowledge, and maybe in cooperation with other companies, the range of 3D modeled and printable objects can be much wider:
- 3D reconstruction, visualization of the human anatomy based on point clouds coming from CT images to practice medical interventions or to make the patients engaged into his treatment
- 3D printed (metal or ceramic) implants
Company of any size can be committed in social responsibility by taking part in different movement such as e-NABLE (http://e-nable.org).
