3D-Printed Eyes

Die 3D-Drucker von Fripp haben ein Verfahren entwickelt, mit dem man 150 Augenprothesen pro Stunde produzieren kann.

British company Fripp Design and Research has developed 3D-printed prosthetic eyes that could be produced much faster than existing handmade versions, reducing the cost by 97 percent.

Fripp Design and Research, which is also working on 3D-printed ears and noses for patients with facial disfigurements, has collaborated with Manchester Metropolitan University to develop ocular prosthetics that are 3D-printed in batches, with intricate coloured details including the iris and blood vessels already included.

3D-printing “can produce up to 150 prosthetic eyes per hour”
