Axial3D, a leader in medical segmentation and 3D printing, has opened the company’s new Medical 3D Printing Centre of Excellence, in Northern Ireland. This state-of-the-art facility in Belfast will be dedicated to advancing the use of 3D printing for hospitals, medical device manufacturers, and medical research companies.

Powered by Axial3D’s cloud-based segmentation service which turns 2D medical images into patient-specific 3D models, the new center of excellence will provide even more hospitals and medical device manufacturers easy access to accurate and realistic 3D printed anatomical models. Equipped with the latest 3D printing technology from Stratasys, a leading medical 3D printer company, Axial3D’s models will enable pre-surgical planning, simulation, device testing, patient-specific device design, and more. The center will also be able to provide models that mimic human tissue and bone, and provide unmatched clinical versatility, repeatability, and accuracy for healthcare professionals and medical device companies.

In November last year, Stratasys led a $15 million investment round in Axial3D, with a total of $10 million. This was Stratasys’ first investment in Axial3D. The two companies also announced that they will be providing a joint offering to make patient-specific 3D printing solutions for hospitals and medical device manufacturers more accessible – so it becomes a mainstream healthcare solution. The opening of Axial3D’s new center in Belfast is a result of this investment and partnership.

“When I founded Axial3D, our goal was to make patient-specific care routine and our new center will allow us to help more clinicians and surgeons improve patient outcomes and provide medical device companies an affordable way to accelerate their patient-specific programs,” said Daniel Crawford, Founder, and CSO of Axial3D. “The opening of our new Medical 3D Printing Centre of Excellence represents a significant milestone for our company and for the field of medicine, allowing us to continue pushing the boundaries of what is possible with 3D printing technology.”
