My first live encounter with a 3d printer

Incredible the possible uses for a 3d printer in medicine. Replacing jaw bones or other facial structures after printing the protheses in exact size, making al kinds of research instruments which otherwise could not be made. Didn’t realize these advantages of 3d printers in medicine before.

Until this morning after meeting with Wouter Sjoerdsma, Medical Device Developer at Erasmus MC, Rotterdam. He also writes a blog: Onderzoeksapparatuur in Dutch.
