Additive manufacturing (AM) is a relatively new processing technique that has grown exponentially over the past decade. As its potential in the medical community becomes more realized, there is an increasing effort between researchers and institutions to communicate efforts and partnerships. Our sponsor, Dr. Ivo Dobrev from the Universitätsspital Zürich’s otorhinolaryngology clinic, wishes to expand the department’s research to encompass AM, and therefore our team set out to create a social network of institutions providing AM resources for the benefit of future projects at the hospital. We interviewed and researched AM companies to provide a meaningful database of resources, and subsequently created an interactive application as an easy and concise reference for the future.
