The Austin 3dMedLab made a strong showing at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Academic Surgery Conference this week, with presentations from Associate Professor Jason Chuen on how we have grown our 3dMed Conference and created a collaborative research framework, whilst Dr Jasamine Coles-Black presented on our progress in 3d-printed Aortic Modelling.
We are getting closer and closer to the Medical 3D Event of the Year!
3dMed 2019 will formally open on Friday 15 November at AAMI Park with our special guests Frank McGuire MP and Prof Guy Maddern.

After making it through the Graeme Clark Institute Healthtech Innovation Challenge 2019 as a Finalist, we sadly missed out on the top prize. It was a fascinating evening and the winner, a halo refringence adaptor for standard microscopes, was well-deserved. Congratulations!
Who would have thought that an anaesthetist would be telling a conference room full of urologists where the future of their specialty is heading? Great to see our team spreading the 3d message far and wide!
This update takes an international flavour as we head off to Hamburg, Germany for the European Society for Vascular Surgery Conference.
Thanks to our student and Research Platforms co-ordinators Gordon Chen and Eric Jong 3dMedLab was pleased to support the #3Devices Medical Device Hackathon at the University of Melbourne over the past few weeks.
Interested in innovation? Curious about 3D printing?— Gordon Chen (@GHJChen) March 14, 2019
3Devices, a 3D printing hackathon @unimelb is here! Over 4 nights, prototype a device in teams that you can present to an expert and industry panel.https://t.co/HKbFjzMRnu@ResPlat @UniMelbMDHS, @engunimelb pic.twitter.com/SzuaEvuPRE
We kicked off with introductory talks on March 28 along with a “speed-dating” session to match up bright minds in Medicine, Dentistry, Allied Health and Engineering, along with some inspiring talks.
OK, this might be a bit off-topic, but we just discovered Compliant Mechanisms and they are waaay too much fun not to share. This has been so mesmerising our poor fidget spinner is sitting in the corner feeling neglected.
3dMedlab was delighted to be invited to present at the 2019 Research Bazaar at The University of Melbourne today. This function is run by the university’s Research Platforms and serves to highlight all of the tools and technologies that enable high level collaborative research across disciplines, faculties, and campuses.

Our team got a chance to spread the #MedTech #3dPrinting #Collaboration fairy dust and catch up with our friends at Unimelb’s FabLab, NExtLab and Engineering workshops. We are so lucky to have access to the these facilities and more importantly the brains that reside there.
