Medical 3D Scanning and Printing Talk – 3rd March

What: Andrew Dawood is the founder of Digits2Widgets and one the UK’s leading innovators in the application of digital planning and 3d printing. Outside of his dental practice Dawood and Tanner, he devotes his time to dental implant surgery, research and development for specialist implant manufacture and 3D imaging and 3D printing.

This lecture was originally given at the Royal Society of Medicine in November 2015 and provides a fascinating insight in to how the technology is being used in reconstructive medicine to astonishing effect. Andrew will be sharing the platform with Josh Stephenson, one of the patients who has benefitted from Andrew’s groundbreaking work. Prior to his illness, Josh worked in fashion and was so inspired by the technology used in his treatment, that he’s using it to help himself back in to the creative working world.

Many medical stories about the technology are based upon the assumption that technical improvements in the either the near or distant future will make wonders possible. This presentation will demonstrate the ways in which it saves and changes lives today.

When: 18:00 for 18:30 start, 3rd March 2016

Where: D2W Studio, 61-63 Rochester Place, London NW1 9JU  (View Map)

Presentations from 3DP-RDM Dissemination workshop

On the 13th January 2016, presentations from the first four 3DP-RDM feasibility studies were made at the 3DP-RDM Dissemination workshop in Cambridge. PDFs of the slides used by each presenter are linked below.

Three of the four presentations were final summaries of the work conducted in 2015. The exception is the CAD Data Transfer Standards study, which continues to the end of March 2016. If you have questions regarding the work conducted in the feasibility studies please follow up with the lead researchers of each project.

Presentation slides from 3DP-RDM Scoping Workshop

We’re sharing our presentation slides at the request of those that joined the scoping workshop on 30th January. The slides:

  • Introduce the 3DP-RDM project
  • Provide an overview of 3D printing/additive manufacturing
  • Describe some of the challenges of re-distributed manufacturing
  • Detail the structured discussion activities followed on the afternoon
  • List the highest priority research topics identified by participants
  • Introduce the feasibility study competition process
  • Request assistance with defining a National Strategy for Additive Manufacturing

A pdf of these slides is available here.

We hope that these slides might be useful both for those that attended the day and for those who were unfortunately unable to do so.
