Medical Imagery Mixes with 3D Printing

Medical modeling company Trinota taps EnvisionTEC’s 3D printing technology to reshape how medical models are presented to surgeons, hospitals and doctors.

Medical modeling company Trinota taps EnvisionTEC’s 3D printing technology to reshape how medical models are presented to surgeons, hospitals and doctors.

Brian and Christopher Luizzi, owners of medical modeling company Trinota, are using EnvisionTEC’s 3D printing technology to reshape how medical models are presented to surgeons, hospitals and doctors.

“We can look at all the 2D images we want, but when you can compile that and get something you can hold in your hand in 3D, it gives you depth and it gives you height,” Christopher Luizzi says.

The Luizzi brothers are using an EnvisionTEC Vector 3SP 3D printer to provide 3D medical models before surgery—giving patients the opportunity to hold what is making them sick in the palm of their hand.

“It’s an existing technology that we’re are reformatting, making it visible in a new dimension,” Brian Luizzi said.

The Vector 3SP technology uses a laser beam to cure photopolymer in a vat, but in a faster and more accurate fashion than traditional SLA systems. Unlike most SLA printers, where the laser beam is stationary, and the beam is directed within the vat, the 3SP system allows the laser beam to move or scan across a large vat, delivering highly fast and accurate objects.
