3D Design for Motion, 3D Design for Print, 3D Design for Real
From MSc Medical Device Design
It’s been a busy few days attending and presenting J5 the 360 Video platform at 404.ie on Saturday. Unfortunately not without a few hiccoughs, so a thanks to the guys from the Google user group for a hand, a Leatherman to be exact, which so happened to be imperial – what are the odds?
The wheels literally came off and not having the correct hex key there was very little to be done, but hey that’s prototyping for you. Wheels on and rearing to go and well, well not so fast the saying goes. Another minor setback of the wheels rubbing against the underside of the chassis rendered the vehicle useless… nonetheless, there was enough to chat to all who were curious enough to stop by.
This week sees me back at the coal face of my Msc with an update on the project so far, check it out. We, the team I’m working with, are now at the point of preliminary materials testing.
I find myself currently midway through week 3 of my masters, sitting on the train on the way back from Galway after attending Medtec Europe conference. If ever I thought there was cool tech in your everyday industrial design, may I suggest you check out a medtech conference.
Apart from attending with the sole focus of networking and looking for solutions for my current design brief, listening to a few of the talks presented, this is going to one insane ride up-skilling in medical. The variety of super high-end technology, manufacturing processes and materials, it’s like a candy store. Getting back to the research part of why I’ve ventured across the M50 is the project I’m currently working on. A human analogue surgical training aid for an open appendectomy which I covered here. So please take the time to head on over and follow our exploits and journey for this project.
