How our 3D printing services support the medical device industry

Digital manufacturing delivers the speed and precision needed for prototyping and producing medical components. Our diverse 3D printing technologies support customers in the medical industry through:

  • Design for Manufacturability (DFM) feedback for every quote
  • Ability to 3D print small, complex and complex part geometries
  • Ability to rapidly prototype using a variety of production-grade materials (high-temperature plastics, thermoplastics, and elastomers)
  • Quality certification: ISO 9001:2015
  • Post-processing options, such as heat treatment, to improve mechanical properties

Manufacturing and assembly design

Elimold recognized the importance of creating a device that worked both from a functional and manufacturing perspective. That’s why, in addition to building products for preclinical and clinical needs, we also support concept development builds.

Our goal is to turn around a functional prototype as quickly as possible. Our in-house rapid prototyping capabilities help us achieve this.

Throughout the project phase, we apply design for manufacturing (DFM) techniques and provide advice and support for design changes. By implementing these changes during the design phase, we can meet your target manufacturing costs. DFM also has the following advantages:

  • Provide higher quality products
  • Develop reliable manufacturing processes
  • Simplify the assembly process
  • Comply with regulatory requirements
  • Accelerate time to market

Additive Manufacturing Benefits for Healthcare

Medical Device Innovation

Accelerate medical innovation with advanced rapid prototyping. Complete more revisions in less time, and reduce time to verification and validation.

Personalized Patient Care

Optimize therapy and improve the chances of success with patient-derived surgical pre-planning models.

High-Strength and Biocompatible Materials

3D printing offers a wide range of high-strength and biocompatible materials to maximize efficiency and customize medical tools and devices like never before.

The best choice for advanced medical 3D printing materials

You can choose from our wide range of proprietary materials, certified third-party materials from top manufacturers, or try any unproven 405nm photopolymer resin with an open materials license. Our materials library contains more than 45 materials, including a variety of biocompatible formulations and high-precision, durable materials for medical device manufacturing to drive innovation in 3D printing medical applications. Elimold biomedical and medical device resins are designed and manufactured within our strong quality management system, which is ISO 13485 and EU MDR certified in our FDA-certified facility.


  • ABS-like White, Translucent/ Clear, Gray, and Black. These durable, yet flexible material options offer the tightest tolerances available for any of the 3D printing technologies.
  • Functionally Clear PC-Like and ABS-Like. Accura 60 and Watershed XC11122 are two materials that can be custom finished for functional clarity.
  • Silicone. This material offers excellent detail, high temperature and wear resistance, and has passed biocompatibility testing, making it an ideal option for medical devices like seals, gaskets, and customized devices.


  • Stainless Steel (316L or 17-4 PH). These corrosion-resistant metals also offer high heat tolerance, corrosion resistance, and a high tensile strength.  
  • Titanium. This workhouse alloy offers high strength, making it a great fit for medical components and instruments.

Medical applications of 3D printing

3D printing has revolutionized the way surgeons and other interventionalists perform complex procedures. Instead of imagining a surgical procedure, doctors and patients can hold an accurate 3D model of the disease in their hands. This could be a diseased heart valve, a tumor in the abdomen or prostate, or an injury to the face. 3D printing allows for practice before surgery, shortening the procedure and recovery time.
