Prosthetic Elbow

Recommended Posts

The company I work for just released the industrial design video of a new prosthetic elbow we have been working on!  The video features a quick shot of our UM3 printing (a cylinder...because of course we had bad luck the day of filming...) and various prototypes floating around in the background - all printed on the UM3.  Maybe future videos will include more shots of the Ultimaker... ?

 

Mods feel free to move or delete this post if it violates the rules.  Its just an exciting project that has definitely benefited from 3D printing, and the Ultimaker specifically.

I am wondering how something really cool, printed on UM machines, could possibly violate anything rules wise. I think this is really cool ?

 

Ha, not sure.  I was worried it might be considered an advertisement for College Park.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
