Traditional manufacturing techniques often involve multiple manufacturing steps, assembly processes, and the use of various components. In contrast, 3D printing can simplify the manufacturing process by producing complex medical devices as a single, consolidated part. This reduction in complexity can streamline supply chains, reduce production time, and minimize the risk of errors or failures associated with assembly processes. The development of new materials specifically designed for 3D printing has expanded the applications of 3D-printed medical devices.
Furthermore, biocompatible materials with suitable mechanical properties, such as bioresorbable polymers and specialized metal alloys, are now available for use in medical applications. These materials offer enhanced biocompatibility, durability, and integration with the human body, making them suitable for a wide range of medical devices.
