Webinars: Sensors/Data Acquisition

Scan-Based and Project Design for Medical


The medical uses for 3D scanning go beyond CT or scanning limbs; often there are hundreds of patient-specific parts that must be archived, referenced, and approved. With highly detailed scanners, professionals can now confidently convert their physical inventory to a digital format for easier sharing and file editing. This also opens the door for data management and automation in approval processes, speeding up lead times for patients to receive critical medical needs. This 30-minute Webinar will explore the process of scanning medical components as well as how to use product data management (PDM) in file automation.

Topics include:

  • What the process for scanning medical components looks like
  • How to modify the scan data for CAD and 3D printing
  • How PDM can be leveraged to automatically create patient specific archives and setup approval of files

An audience Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
