The OrthoBeast

Recommended Posts

We have just acquired The Beast: an FDM kit from Cultivate3D, an Australian startup down the road in Wyong, NSW.

 

This is the only printer we could source with a build size to take a full pelvis or femur that our public health service could afford.

 

Cost of OrthoBeast kit : A$3000, including heated bed and high volume extruders.

Quotes for other printers with 450x450x600 commercially available ranged from $80,000-150,000 and up.

 

The expectations we have are not to have a finished product that we can plug in and use, but how hard can it be?

I put it to you that if someone has the skill and patience to reconstruct a bone or joint, building a 3D printer should be achievable...
