3D printing has much to offer to the field of medicine. The evolution of 3D printing has enabled the design and creation of components previously unrealized with traditional manufacturing techniques, allowing us to explore and customize solutions, quickly and creatively. In its application to medical implants, 3D printing allows us to consider embedding new and multiple functionalities within single components via elegant designs and allows us to work with new and existing materials in innovative ways.
