B9Creations, the South Dakota-based manufacturer of the B9 Core Series of DLP 3D Printers, has launched a new additive manufacturing Healthcare Division & Service Bureau as well as a 3D printer targeted at the medical industry.
The B9 Core Med 500, released with the first two of the company’s suite of biocompatible materials, will support the new division which aims to develop new medical devices, anatomical models, surgical tools, and wearable technology.
B9Creations and medical 3D printing
Earlier this year, B9Creations partnered with SDC Technologies, California-based coating specialists, to open a $500,000 additive manufacturing materials development lab. This lab is located at B9Creations’ Rapid City headquarters. Now, the Healthcare Division & Service Bureau will further facilitate a diverse portfolio of medical applications.
The company’s 3D printers have been used for dental and medical models. This includes surgical tools and instrumentation, training models, customized lab and manufacturing tools, jigs as well as fixtures for enhanced productivity.

The B9 Core Med 500 has been designed to be four times faster than other systems in the market, include factory startup assistance, and eliminate calibration. It is accompanied by biocompatible and engineering materials. The 3D printer is currently priced at $11,955.
