Aim of the resource

The Design and 3D technologies for Health&Care courses is an online event organised by OpenDot Fab Lab, as part of the Distributed Design project - funded by Creative Europe.

Through 4 different courses, OpenDot teaches how design processes and digital manufacturing technologies can innovate the healthcare sector to respond to real needs and by producing effective solutions.

The result is a playlist of 4 lectures and a series of software related mini tutorials, which give you a complete overlook of 4 different topics:

Parametric Design, to learn how to quickly adapt objects to the specificity of the user by changing measures and configurations;
Modeling for surgery, to learn how to realize preoperative study models, for the realization of prostheses and guides to support the operations;
Custom orthotics, to learn how to design masks, braces, plasters or orthotics that are personalised and comfortable thanks to 3D scanning and 3D printing;
Training kit for the medical staff, to design kits useful to medical simulation during training practices.
