PrinterPrezz opens one-stop 3D printing shop

PrinterPrezz Inc, a California-based 3D printing service bureau specializing in the medical sector, has opened a one-stop 3D printing facility in Fremont, California. 

With its technical support and hardware capabilities, PrinterPrezz offers 3D printing services to medical professionals, taking their ideas from design to manufacturing.

Co-founder and CEO of PrinterPrezz, Shri Shetty, said, “3D printing has the potential to revolutionize how the world thinks about developing advanced medical devices.”

“From surgeons seeking new technologies, to manufacturers needing scale, to patients hoping for speedy functional recoveries, PrinterPrezz’s Medifacturing framework solves challenges in quality, cost, and time.”

Medifacturing medical devices

The range of services offered by PrinterPrezz includes access to engineers, 3D software and 3D printers for manufacturing medical devices, surgical aids, and prosthetics.

Dr. Alan Dang, an orthopedic surgeon and co-founder of PrinterPrezz, said, “By bringing together experienced clinicians and innovative engineers with leading 3D printing equipment and software from around the world, PrinterPrezz decreases turnaround time from concept to manufacturing.”

PrinterPrezz is partners with some of the industry leaders in 3D printing such as Renishaw, a UK-based 3D printer manufacturer, Si-bone, a California-based surgical implant provider, and Materialise, a Belgian software company. 

In addition to its commercial activities, the company is also active in promoting 3D printing education, offering entry and advanced-level courses on 3D modeling and metal 3D printing.

One-stop 3D printing shop

The new facility, PrinterPrezz Innovation Center, is a one-stop shop solution. It will bring design, prototyping, and manufacturing under one roof, saving time and costs for PrinterPrezz’ clients.

At PrinterPrezz, customers can have their products 3D printed in a range of materials, which includes the engineering-grade PEEK, and titanium alloy known as Ti6Al4V-ELI. Clients will have access to systems from Carbon, and 3D Systems, and Renishaw’s RenAM 500M for metal 3D printing.

Shri Shetty added, “By combining proven metal 3D printing technologies with our proprietary nanotechnology post-processing, we can further enhance new medical devices to improve durability, strength, and bone-in-growth while reducing the potential for infection.”
