On-Demand Webinar | DeepDive Mecuris & PPprint

Using 3D Printing with Polypropylene (PP) to create durable orthotic devices

Additionally, you can earn 1,5 CEU's by watching the webinar and answering a short quiz afterwards. *What are CEUs and what do I need them for?


Join us when Richard Miltenberger from Mecuris welcomes Sebastian Schmidt from PPprint and Joe Fairley from Ascent Fabrication for an exciting webinar. 

Using the example of a SMO (Supra-Malleolar Orthosis) you will be able to see the fully digital workflow. Starting with a demo of the Mecuris Solution Platform, where you can see a joint correction, modifications of the positive model and creating a file for an orthotic device. 

Moving on to the production of the SMO, Sebastian and Joe introduce polypropylene filament as a great fit for the O&P industry. They show you all the benefits ranging from cost-efficiency to durability and high surface quality.

Ascent Fab

Ascent Fabrication

Ascent Fabrication’s mission is to provide accessible digital workflows which assist O&P companies in the implementation of additive manufacturing, while designing and fabricating highly functional and innovative prosthetic and orthotic devices. Ascent Fabrication uses materials from PPprint for inhouse production and provides filament to O&P companies. 

While our day to day operations involve providing O&P central fabrication services, we also provide in-house and remote training and troubleshooting services.

*A CEU (continuing education units) is a measurement unit used in the United States in education and training programs. In some professions in the U.S. it is required to earn a certain number of CEU's per five-year continuing education cycle to maintain the license to practice. If you are a Orthotist/Prosthetist, O&P Assistant, O&P Technician or a Pedorthist you can earn some CEU's with our online content.
