November 12, 2021, 06:00 PM – 07:00 PM EST(-05:00)
Melanie Shelton with Bruce Williams, DPM
As 3D printing is disrupting the manufacturing industry, the custom-foot-orthotic industry is no exception. This session will aim to provide an understanding of how 3D printing technology works, the materials available, and the new design possibilities enabled by additive manufacturing. These topics provide an understanding to explore the potential benefits of using 3D printing for the manufacture of custom foot orthotics.
