Last year Root3 Labs experimented with multi-material 3D-printing to deliver prototypes that simulated a button and gasket that would be overmolded in production. We were very happy with the results and our client was quite pleased that we were able to quickly iterate...
We're sponsoring the upcoming RAMP MD symposium to explore new bio-medical applications of additive manufacturing and 3D Printing. We'll also be speaking on a panel related to the use of AM in prototyping and manufacturing. Keynote by Congressman Andy Harris, M.D....
At a recent 3D Maryland “3D Innovators Group” event, I presented a few short case studies of recent projects to describe how I’ve used 3D printing as both a tool to evaluate a design and as a finished demonstration prototype.
Root3 Labs℠ is excited to be part of the new National Capital Consortium for Pediatric Device Innovation (NCC-PDI), formed through a $3.5 million award over 5 years from the FDA to the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation at Children’s National Medical Center.
Root3 Labs and collaborating university hospital surgeons have been awarded a $50,000 TEDCO grant to commercialize a novel medical device. The project will develop and test prototypes of a patent-pending expandable endoscopic surgical instrument, advancing the technology toward a commercial product.
Here’s an excellent visualization of the FDM process of 3D printing.
Threaded inserts are commonly used to create stronger threads for attaching fasteners that would strip out of the plastic material. What is the best way to install them?
