NEWM-N 548 3D Prototyping for Medical and Dental Applications

3 credits

  • Prerequisites: NEWM N502 or equivalent or instructor permission
  • Delivery: On-Campus
  • This course covers advanced modeling, sculpting, articulation, and printing of 3D objects for applications in medicine and dentistry. It includes strategies for the collection, evaluation, and editing of data from medicine and dentistry and the creation of prototypes for complete medical and dental applications.

    Learning Outcomes

    • Evaluate the workflows of surgeons and dentists who create 3D models.
    • Evaluate critically the templates to ensure accurate production of 3D models for the missing structure.
    • Evaluate and design plans for a production.
    • Develop production methods in a 3D printing pipeline.
    • Evaluate, test, and experiment with various datasets to create applicable solutions.
    • Apply self-imposed deadlines and time management to fulfill final project expectations and budget considerations.
    • Create models that are aligned with their functional and/or cosmetic purpose.
    • Develop project presentations in accordance with research interest in medicine or dentistry.
