Introduction to Prosthetics and their manufacture

Prosthetics are parts that fit into a human body to complete a function that has been lost/impaired. Ears cannot hear clearly; eyes have difficulty in seeing clearly; limbs have been cut off or were never present. Cochlear implants in the ear canal improve hearing; lenses are inserted into the retina to improve eyesight; artificial limbs aid walking and functioning of hands.

I took part in the InnoCentive Challenge # 9933299 - 3D Printer with 10X Speed that was posted on Feb 28, 2014. The Seeker desired proposals for 3D printing with 10X the speed and was particularly interested in disruptive innovations to dramatically increase the throughput of 3D printers. I decided that this challenge suited me. Within three days time I had developed a solution based on my experiences in various fields and my understanding of how to eliminate waste.
