Global Grad Show is now Prototypes for HumanityRead the story
We are a group of students at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in New York that came together in 2019 through a love of 3D printing and technology. The team is composed of engineers and computing students with many different talents. The work we do focuses on creating 3D printing orthopaedic models. These models can be used for educational purposes or in surgical planning to improve patient outcomes. In the latter we take patient scans (CT) and convert them into a digital file that can be 3D printed. The bone models can then be manipulated to increase visualisation or practiced on to gain experience with surgical technique.
