Moules et Outillages de Bourgogne participated, with 13 other companies from the region, in making a human bust through 3D imaging, so as to contribute to the promotion of 3D printing in Burgundy-Franche-Comté.
This project, initiated and monitored by the ‘Innov’Health’ group, of the Besançon microtechnical centre, aimed at showing off the different 3D scanning, modelling and printing techniques present in Burgundy-Franche-Comté.
Thanks to the involvement and to the skills of each participant, it was possible to make and present the torso during the last Micronora Tradefair in Besançon.
In addition to the curiosity attracted by the torso, it is interesting to see the finish and the complementary techniques used in printing (metal, resin or polymer) and to understand how each one has a specific application in fields as different as industry, medical, jewellery, art…
Our involvement at Moules et Outillages de Bourgogne was in printing the right side of the pelvis, part of the left side of the pelvis, the sacrum and diaphragm. These parts, which were relatively big, were especially suited to our PMMA model printing equipment, because our machine can print parts measuring up to 1000 x 600 x 500 mm.
The different photos of the torso show the finished project.
We would like to thank Aurélie SABANOVIC of PMT and Julien SIMON of OneFIT medical to have given us the opportunity of participating and communicating about our know-how of 3D printing.
This project was jointly financed by the Burgundy Franche Comté Region and by the European Fund for Regional Development – EFRD
