Medical 3D printing and scanning services to help professional create realistic anatomical models, medical devices, and produce patient-specific models

Medical Solutions

Innovation saves lives, 3D printing and scanning continues to empower doctors, researchers and medical device manufacturers to create solutions faster, test concepts thoroughly and customize solutions like never before.

TriMech services meet the needs of customers ranging from medical device OEMs and teaching hospitals to individual healthcare professionals. We are dedicated to help doctors train for, plan, practice and perform complex medical procedures and achieve better patient outcomes. We work alongside doctors, surgeons, researchers located in hospitals and academic institutions across North America.

3D scanning and 3D printing allows high tech manufacturers to test for fit, form and function and in some cases test their designs in real world conditions.

Medical Manufacturing Services

PolyJet 3D printing service offers a broad range of material properties from rigid to flexible and opaque to transparent. Its an ideal solution to support the requirement for highly accurate surgical guides and true-to-life medical device prototypes. For strong tooling, custom fixtures, research aids or medical device components.

FDM 3D printing service works with production-grade materials, including high-performance thermoplastics.

Both technologies offer bio-compatible materials, so you can take advantage of 3D printing scalability and geometric capabilities in patient care and advanced experimental work.

How TriMech Helps Medical Designers and Practitioners:

Prototype Medical Devices

Help you to accelerate medical device development from 3D printed concept models to preclinical testing.

Clinical Training Models

Conduct clinically relevant training anywhere on realistic anatomical models customized for virtually any clinical scenario.

Medical Manufacturing

Support clinical trial and early commercial production by increasing production flexibility. At a fraction of the cost of machining, you can additively manufacture functional parts while eliminating medical manufacturing constraints and making production more agile and responsive.

Surgical Planning Models

Support clinical trial and early commercial production by increasing production flexibility. At a fraction of the cost of machining, you can additively manufacture functional parts while eliminating medical manufacturing constraints and making production more agile and responsive.

Medical Industry Profile

3D printing helps medical manufacturers to create more realistic anatomical models, mimic human tissue and bone, and produce patient-specific models.

Accelerate time to create Clinical Trial Devices

In the past, prototypes were used sparingly in medical design work due to cost and time considerations

3D printing provides a faster, more streamlined system that allows medical product manufacturers to develop clinical trial-ready devices in-house to check everything from form, fit and function to manufacturability.

Sterilized medical devices

Create End-use Medical Devices

Medical devices can also be difficult to produce, due to the small size and intricacy of the parts.

Some medical parts are as small as a staple and measure just 0.020 inches in thickness. 3D Printing allows manufacturers to easily create these difficult parts from 3D CAD models.

Plan out Medical Procedures with Precise Anatomical Models

In cases where complex, multi-faceted surgical procedures are required, the ability to predetermine the best possible outcome is key.

Anatomical modeling – made possible through the use of Stratasys 3D printing systems — allows surgical teams to evaluate several different treatment scenarios before deciding on a plan that ensures these needs are met.

Advantages of PolyJet Technology

Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys PolyJet Machine

Realistic Parts

Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers are based on proven technology, which creates precise prototypes that set  the standard for finished-product realism.

Their fine resolution makes complex shapes, intricate details  and smooth surfaces possible.

Precise Models

PolyJet 3D Printing works by jetting layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly curing them with UV light.

The fine layers build up to create a precise 3D model or prototype. Models are ready to handle right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.

Better ideas, easier sell

PolyJet 3D printed models improve communication and collaboration because they produce amazingly  accurate representations of your ideas that you can share with your team and your clients for a faster, more confident buy-in.
