Personalized Products and Production
The confluence of emerging responsive manufacturing systems, such as 3D printing, and the ubiquitous presence of the internet and computing presents an opportunity for a new model of product realization: the personalization of products tailored to the individual needs and preferences of consumers. Here customers create and realize innovative products by collaborating with manufacturers and other consumers. This co-design process is enabled by a responsive cyber-physical system involving user participation in design, product simulation/certification, manufacturing, supply and assembly processes that rapidly meet consumer needs and preferences.
The goals of this project are to understand how personalized dental and/or cranial implants are produced by additive manufactured. CAD is released based on a complex analysis of the relationship patient characteristics – structural analysis – material selection and biocompatibility.
