Pediatric cardiac surgery is one of the most demanding medical specialties. It needs to deal with delicate structures like tiny little hearts of neonates. The heart of the newborn child can weight even 20 grams, and fit on a human’s palm. Procedure on such a small heart brings a lot of difficulties.
Rotor prototyping – how SLS 3D printing helps to fight the wildfires
Firefighters need high-quality equipment, they can depend on, especially on the eve of wildfire season. Fast and effective water flow is essential. Here’s the story of how 3D printing and Selective Laser Sintering technology helped redesign the water pump rotor three times faster than in the usual prototyping process.
Taste the Internet with 3d printed customizable ice pops
Merging art with innovative technology can bring up most spectacular results. The vision perfected by the work of Leonardo da Vinci today is being continued by successors to his approach, like famous car manufacturer Horacio Pagani or Janne Kyttanen, featured by TIME Magazine as one of the most influential people in design.
SLS 3d printed bike grips empowering extreme mountain biking
Most of the great things begins out of passion and knowledge. The same was in NIRI Grips case. Passionate off-road riders – Riccardo, mechanical engineer and Andrea, the medical doctor with interest in the modern technologies used in sports, decided to improve the quality of extreme biking. Combination of their experience and skills paved the way to produce 3d printed, vibration absorbing bike grips. During the prototyping process, they met Sinterit, producer of desktop 3d printers operating is selective laser sintering (SLS) technology.
Living in increasingly contaminated cities, people are using protective masks more and more frequently. While there are many styles for adults, there are far fewer designed especially for children, for whom pollution is definitely more harmful. Bartlomiej Gaczorek, a designer in 3D technology, wanted to respond to this need by creating a mask for young children.
The World’s first printed pleating costume
A new approach to acquiring materials for clothes making, by unusual usage of SLS 3D print technology. The challenge was to create a material with specific properties. Sinterit Lisa helped to meet all the expectations about the material printed. The usage of special, flexible material – Sinterit Flexa Black enabled the texture to synchronize with actor’s body.
AR technology in glasses from SLS 3D printer
Data glasses is an invention by professor Rigo Herold, in cooperation with his colleagues. While working on Zwickau University of Applied Sciences, they developed a data google that can improve quality and safety of workers in a lot of industries. Thanks to the high technology used in this product, workers are provided with real-time information on operational procedures as well as warnings of dangerous situations that might happen in their work environment.
Exoskeleton supportive hand for children
A tailor-made exoskeleton arm is a device that allows them to move hands, to draw, play and express themselves – simply do what kids love to do. The idea came out from parents of children with SMA, who couldn’t find adequate solution. Radek was the kid, who moved his arms for the first time thanks to the solution developed by Barłomiej Gaczorek Design studio and printed on Sinterit Lisa 3D printer.
3D prototypes of voting terminal
Thanks to prototyping on SLS Sinterit Lisa printer, the company ELEcTOR produced voting pilot in a faster, easier and better way. The final product is now used to pass resolutions in Government institutions, make decisions at Supervisory Board meetings, manage tests and questionnaires during lectures and conferences.
Research project on design by Desén
Desén is a research project exploring what happens when computational fluid dynamic algorithms (typically used in marine and aerospace applications) are applied to furniture and object forms.
