3D Systems’ product line includes high-end 3D printing services for metallic implants and instrumentation used for orthopedic, spinal, CMF, dental and veterinary applications. Medical device companies rely on our expertise and Direct Metal Printing (DMP) capabilities to guide them from prototyping and trial series to large volume manufacturing.
As DMP bypasses multiple metalworking operations, tooling and assembly costs are reduced drastically. The lead time typically shifts from months to weeks compared to traditional technologies. The economic advantage of shorter time-to-market for new medical devices allows for reducing the stock levels of devices at distributors and hospitals.
3D Systems pioneered healthcare solutions that enhance quality-of-life through the use of 3D printing technologies and has been at the forefront of surgical planning and personalized medical solutions for almost two decades. Our products and 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.

Universitätsklinikum RWTH Aachen - Zahnärztliche Werkstoffkunde und Biomaterialforschung
The Department of Dental Materials and Biomaterials Research (www.biomaterials-research.de), RWTH Aachen University Hospital (Head: Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Horst Fischer) develops tailored biomaterials for intelligent prosthesis and innovative implants. These novel materials are designed for application in the fields of soft tissue engineering, dentistry, orthopaedics, and trauma surgery. Due to the wide range of interdisciplinary subject matters our team consists of materials scientists, mechanical and biomedical engineers and biologists.
Our research focus is within the field of tissue engineering. In particular we develop novel 3D-bioprinting techniques and investigate the interaction between 3D printed cells and materials in different projects funded by DFG and BMBF. Bioprinting can be used to print cell-laden hydrogel constructs, which are subsequently matured in a bioreactor, to replace damaged or diseased tissue. Furthermore those cell constructs can be used according to the 'organ-on-a-chip' principle. Here, in-vitro tissue models are used to address fundamental biological, medical, and pharmacological questions.
