The development of a three -dimensional press had fruit in many industries, including healthcare. Certificate of this is the cooperation agreement signed by Stratasys, a 3D printer manufacturer, and the US Department of Veterans Affairs. During the implementation of this affiliate program, hospitals, which are served by veterans who received disability in the war, receive 3D printing devices, as well as all components and consumables. Moreover, a whole network will be created for the exchange of data and the collection of statistical data from printers.
Five hospitals have been selected for the pilot project, where the staff has yet to be trained with new equipment. However, according to the head of Stratasys, the company is able to provide prostheses of all those in need and help them adapt to their new capabilities so that their life again becomes full.
The world fame of Stratasys brought a 3D printer that could print large-sized details. The aerospace industry quickly found him application, and then giants such as Boeing, Siemens and Ford showed interest in the new product. The possibilities of such a 3D printer are impressive: it is capable of, for example, at a time at a whole aircraft interior.
