Dimension Inx, an innovative 3D printing material developer, has established a new advisory board and is introducing its first advisory board member: Andy Christensen. Working with high profile AM companies, Mr. Christensen has spent his entire career focused on developing and expanding the medical applications of 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing. From 2000 to 2014 he was the Founder and President of Medical Modeling Inc., a medical device-focused 3D Printing service bureau based in Golden, Colorado.

Medical Modeling worked closely with surgeons and medical device manufacturers to create entirely new toolsets in the areas of patient-specific anatomic modeling, virtual surgical planning, personalized surgical guides/implants and applying metal 3D printing to orthopedic implant applications. Andy and his team contributed to the care of tens of thousands of patients, a number of medical and regulatory “firsts” and numerous high-profile cases including more than two dozen sets of conjoined twins. In April 2014 Medical Modeling was acquired by 3D Systems and contributed to the creation of a new business vertical for 3D Systems in the Healthcare sector. Andy left 3D Systems in 2015 to pursue other interests.

Spinning out from research conducted by Dr. Shah at Northwestern University’s TEAM Lab, Dimension Inx has been growing rapidly, expanding its customer base and partner network (Dr. Shah is also a Co-founder and Chief Science Officer). The company employs its extensive array of innovative biomaterials and unique “3D-painting” technology to address numerous tissue and organ repair and regeneration challenges. The newly established advisory board seeks to further help accelerate the development and adoption of Dimension Inx’s materials and technologies and corresponding introduction of new medical solutions.

Dimension Inx Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Adam Jakus said “Because Dimension Inx’s materials and technologies are so versatile and can address a range of existing medical and clinical challenges, it is important that we look to the experience and expertise of those individuals who have been in the medical advanced manufacturing industry for years, in order to guide Dimension Inx’s activities and efforts.”
