Additive solution with results. FibreTuff exhibited at Rapid + TCT 2021. FibreTuff displayed anatomical bone models printed with biocompatible filaments and powders that can be sterilized by Autoclave.
3D printing FibreTuff biocompatible materials can produce bone like skull caps for functional models used by medical centers and physicians.
3D printing Bio fabricated parts manufactured with a FibreTuff medical grade composition and collagen showed adhesion. The prototype symmetrical micropore structure helps to create bone like biocompatible implants.
3D printed FibreTuff has been identified in Ultrasound images to show thickness of a cranio maxillofacial bone for evidence based healing.
3D printing of FibreTuff can be coated with inks to support functional circuits such as capacitive touch sensors, RF, strain gages and more.
The 3D printing of a cranial flap by 3DGence is shown here, having high resolution and the necessary heating chamber to help the layering process with a nylon based composition FibreTuff.
The 3D printing of porous scaffolds with FibreTuff, tested in vitro showed osteoblast adhesion. These tests were preformed by a Medical college in Northeast Ohio.
FibreTuff has passed USP Class VI testing performed by NAMSA for temporary implant status. Non GLP Third party testing of FibreTuff has shown 3D printing scaffolds have bioactivity, apatite formation and osteoblast adhesion.
The 3D printing FibreTuff filaments include biocompatible ingredients with "Bone like" scaffolds. There are no offensive odors when printed above 260C. FibreTuff recommends printing in the Z direction for optimizing the print strength.
FibreTuff will not conduct heat like other resins. This feature will permit the 3D printing of microporous bone scaffolds and designs. Consequently, adding more mass and strength to the part.
The 3D printing of cranio maxillofacial temporal bone made with FibreTuff was performed by an orthopedic surgeon. The part strength was optimized by a Z direction layout and print using Ultimaker and Cura.
3D printing FibreTuff can produce bar stock for machining spine implant prototypes and surgical guides.
Roger Sherman's presented at Duquesne University this poster for Graduate Research Symposium. His work with Dr's Hammer, Viator and Marshall was outstanding. This use case by 3D printing FibreTuff as a hyoid bone will help professional's understand damage to the neck and simulate fractures.
Abigail Tetteh PhD student at the Implant Research Center Drexel University and Dr's MacDonald and Kurtz helped produce this poster where 3D printed bone like replicas made with FibreTuff were analyzed. The data collected indicated FibreTuff a biocompatible medical grade filament produced a cancellous structure. Awesome work performed by the team to validate FibreTuff impressive 3D printing qualities. More information coming soon.
In 2019 Marshall University professor Dr Ross Salary and his students printed FibreTuff in a FDM method to replicate bone like scaffolds and presented the poster at the Biofabrication 2019 event held in Columbus Ohio October 20-22. Dr Salary has been steadfast to analyze and find a 3D printing bone replacement with like qualities.
Communicating new ideas to customers who need 3D printing using the most advanced medical grade biocompatible composition with bone like qualities.
