Medical Art Resources joined the Milwaukee School of Engineering‘s Rapid Prototyping Consortium in 2015. As a member of the consortium we have access to the valuable expertise of the staff of MSOE’s Rapid Prototyping Center and its equipment including a variety of scanners and rapid prototyping machines. In addition to these awesome benefits (and attending consortium meetings to network and learn about advancements in rapid prototyping), our membership has allowed us to incorporate 3D printing into our process for making prosthetic ears! 3D printing a mirror-image of a patient’s intact ear gives us an extremely accurate and detailed starting point for our wax sculpture, something we’d otherwise accomplish by hand.
