Michael Gaisford explains the differences in FDM and Polyjet 3D printing technology and the many ways each can be utilized in medical applications.
So a little bit about Stratasys and who we are. We’re a company that’s been around for over 25 years. 3D printing for a lot of people is a new technology. You’re seeing it on Grey’s Anatomy and other shows as something that is brand new. Or you haven’t really seen it necessarily, but it has been around for a while.
Actually, 3D printing in the medical space goes back a couple of decades. It’s one of the earlier applications, but as a company, we’ve been around for 25 years. We’re a global company. And we really pride ourselves in our technology leadership, in terms of all the intellectual property, and patents, and awards that we’ve received for innovation.
