ImageNet Consulting has joined Ultimaker’s initiative to provide 3D printing services to hospitals experiencing shortages of needed medical parts amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ultimaker 3D Printing Initiative Ultimaker is offering 3D printing resources to hospitals facing immediate delivery shortages of critical medical parts. Through Ultimaker’s two-part initiative, hospitals with pre-approved 3D print designs and material specifications will connect with 3D design experts, 3D hubs, and resellers like ImageNet Consulting to print medical parts.
Ultimaker’s team of expert designers and application engineers will also work with hospitals without pre-approved designs to design and create needed medical parts. Once designed, parts will be sent to the nearest 3D print hub for printing. Printed parts will then be sent to the hospital for testing and final approval before use.
ImageNet Consulting’s Dallas office, which houses ImageNet’s largest number of 3D printers, will serve as a 3D hub for hospitals in the Dallas area to request 3D printed medical parts.
“ImageNet is grateful to have a partner like Ultimaker who’s focused on something bigger than business in this difficult time. We are thankful to be part of this initiative and hope that this helps save lives during the process.
“In terms of technology, 3D printing is very special. We believe it is something that all businesses and institutions will use one day. This initiative proves how important it is that we get 3D printing technology into more hands,” said TJ Russell, ImageNet’s director of 3D Printing.
