3D Printer helps improve radiation treatment

Cutting edge cancer radiation treatments are being developed using LulzBot 3D printers!

http://kdvr.com/2017/05/10/3-d-printer-helps-improve-radiation-treatment/

Alex Markovic is an oncologist at Northern Colorado Medical Center in Greeley Colorado. Alex and his team came up with the idea of using scans of patients to create a 3D printed “bolus” mold that conforms precisely to each patient to optimize the distribution of radiation treatments.
After purchasing a LulzBot TAZ 6 and Flexydually v2 toolhead to test their designs, Alex and his team have received 3D Printer training and consulting from IT-Works 3D to improve their skills and results. It’s been a pleasure to do a small part to move this new medical treatment forward!

3D Print your own Pokémon Pikachu today!

Pokémon Pikachu

This 10 inch tall 3D print of a “low poly” Pokémon Pikachu  was printed for a silent auction, but I thought it would be fun to post!  For all of you Pokémon Go fans, this is for you!  It is a low poly Pikachu printed in yellow PLA on a Lulzbot TAZ 6 3D printer.  PLA  is one of the most commonly used filaments in 3D printing because it is so easy to use. PLA has minimal warping and shrinking compared to other materials, which means it thrives when making objects featuring flat surfaces and hard angles, or requiring tight tolerances for fit. The Lulzbot TAZ 6 is also available refurbished here.  You could also scale this print down and print it on a Lulzbot Mini 3D printer!

Just look at all the fun you can have with a 3D printer!  Whether you are a Pokémon fan or a hobbyist of some other kind, you can print one of a kind 3D prints to suite your needs!  From figurines to replacement parts, a 3D printer is a useful tool to have around!  We recently 3D printed something even more useful than this Pokemon, chair feet for a kitchen table.
