The aim of the project is to produce novel solutions with improved functionality for health care and medicine by applying various surface treatment and coating methods to 3D printed objects. The surface of the object often determines its functionality more than its inner structure and surface treatments can significantly change the surface properties. Many applications in health care and medicine find their best usefulness when tailored individually for each patient and, therefore, combining the ability of 3D printing to produce objects with customized shapes and inner structures and various surface treatments enables production of a wide variety of novel solutions for the needs of the medical field. The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
