Medical devices tend to have longer development cycles than consumer goods, due in part to clinical testing, quality, and regulatory requirements. Reducing the number of prototyping cycles or even directly 3D printing end-use devices can have a significant impact on speed to market.
In this live webinar, Director of Formlabs Medical Gaurav Manchanda, and Head of Medical Sales Chaz Kochel, will share examples of how innovative medical device companies and health systems use 3D printing from concept to commercialization.
We’ll also have 20 mins of live Q&A where you can ask about all your medical device 3D printing related questions.
