This episode with Brent Ewald peels back the layers of 3D printing, revealing the intricate dance of design and machine. Listeners will gain an appreciation for the system-based problem-solving that is essential when dealing with the nuanced interplay of a printer's various subsystems and might find themselves inspired by the continuous learning that defines a career in this field.
We open the doors to the nuanced world of CAD and automation, illuminating the potential for prosthetists to streamline their craft with these powerful tools. The chapter sheds light on the precision needed when designing for confined spaces and introduces the concept of auxetic structures, an innovative solution that could eclipse traditional lattices in specific applications. This episode is not just a discussion—it's an invitation for designers to embrace community, share knowledge, and seek guidance in navigating the intricate and fulfilling world of prosthetics and orthotics.
