Workshop: Introduction to 3D-Printing

Three-dimensional (3D) printing technology allows the fabrication of detailed volumetric objects of virtually any shape. Medical applications for 3D printing are expanding rapidly and are expected to revolutionize health care.

Medical uses for 3D printing, both actual and potential, can be organized into several broad categories, including: tissue and organ fabrication; creation of customized prosthetics, implants, and anatomical models; and pharmaceutical research regarding drug dosage forms, delivery, and discovery.

In this presentation, our UWA Medical Physics postgraduate students explained:

֍ Applications of 3D Printing

֍ Terminology and Components of a 3D Printer

֍ 3D Models - STL Files

֍ G-Code: Using Slicing Programs like Prusa Slicer

֍ Live Demonstration of the Printing Process

֍ First Layer Adhesion

֍ Troubleshooting Common Problems

֍ Making Your Own Models? The PowerPoint slides are available via this

Thanks to Riley and Andrew for a wonderful informative talk.
