Assistive Device Design Tips from a Mechanical and Biomedical Engineer

Today we have a very special guest joining us, Dave Gaylord, VP of Product and Technology at MatterHackers, who recorded a video providing his top 5 tips for people designing assistive devices with 3D printing.

15th March 2021 Make:able

Dave’s background is in biomedical and mechanical engineering and due to his medical experience, he played a large role in helping with testing/modifying 3D printed PPE during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic PPE shortage. Dave’s video is aimed at students participating in the make:able challenge but we think his words of wisdom will be a source of inspiration for anyone looking to design and 3D print assistive technology. Without further ado, let’s hear from Dave in the video below!

**For those of you participating in make:able, just a friendly reminder that the submission deadline is approaching on 1st April 2021. Please contact if you have any questions regarding the submission format or process.
