Pioneering Rapid Prototyping

2003 Trained by 3D Systems top SLA engineers from Automotive (F1) and Aviation, training Certificate Signed by Chuck Hall the inventor SLA and founder of 3D Systems, (granted special status) Not required to undergo SLA Beta tester training at 3D Systems HQ in the US.

While working in the Platinum industry highly secure environment Beta testing successfully increased the Accuracy of the Viper Si2 turning the £100k device into the Accuracy of devices costing £1m at the time, which was then distributed as an update to devices across the Globe and reduced the cost of industrial SLA devices. Used primarily in Bio-mechanical engineering to develop tools, medical devices and surgical planning models.

Free software and consumables

Prof Persad link highlighted the need for low cost sustainable consumables and the current focus on medical personalised pre-surgery planning models using affordable fused deposition modeling (FDM), My response was look at recycling plastic waste Class 7 recyclable, extruding filament which they currently have the technology. i.e. recent Dyson award winning humanitarian project Polyformer link

Prof Persad paper in the Caribbean medical journal link points to the need for training of Radiographers / Other Medical Professionals. Met a local ultrasound technician and discussed medical imaging DICOM file data, volumetric pixels called Voxels into 3D CAD model using STL file for 3D Printing, used for creating model of fetus for blind pregnant mothers to be.
