Changing Technologies (CHGT), focused on developing innovation concepts for consumers, has found a potentially niche market in processing raw CT scans into 3D printable files.
“There is a definite, growing demand for this service,” stated CHGT CEO Marco Valenzuela. “Companies and people are finding that getting their CT data converted into a file their 3D printer can process is a challenge. You can’t just go from a scan to print. The file needs to be converted. We aim to fill that void. CHGT now offers CT scan processing services where we can take a customer’s scan file and turn it to a 3D printable model that we can print for them, they can print it themselves or find a printer using our portal. We believe this niche market can turn into a solid, revenue-producing business for us.”
3D printing technology is being rapidly adopted by the medical sector. For example, surgeon all over the world started to 3D print models of their patients organs or other parts, to better prepare for surgery. Most doctors find an actual, printed model a better way to visualise the procedure to be performed.
