    Your responsibilities:
    • Participation in the research project “PrintMyBone – 3D printing of artificial bones from clinical CT data”.
    • In particular: use of FDM and SLA printing processes, extension of these printing processes (keywords: “composite materials” and “non-planar slicing”) as well as characterization of 3D printed parts (mechanical testing, micro-CT imaging). The goal is to create 3D printed structures that mimic the mechanical properties of human bones and can be used for precise, repeatable tests for the development of medical devices or for training purposes.
    • Submission of research applications, participation in third-party funded projects
    • Supervision of students and participation in teaching

    Your profile:
