"Digitally manufacturing the fixture with
polycarbonate took it from eight pieces to one,
more accurate piece that lines up."

A Life-Changing Device
For Kablooe Design, creating devices which transform the medical industry is not a new endeavor. Nearly seventy-five percent of the design firm's creations are life-changing medical devices. When asked to radically transform a device used to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia in a extremely short timeframe, Kablooe turned to rapid prototyping with RedEye On Demand. Watch Video
Tom KraMer, President of Kablooe design, said that they knew from the beginning they needed to use RedEye's Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) for development because FDM materials are so strong. "We're bolting this thing together, driving screws through the plastic. It's housing complex computer components, RF generators, and transformers. It needs to hold up to rigorous physical demands and it needs to pass FDA requirements," Tom said. "Without FDM and RedEye On Demand, we could not have gotten to manufacturing on time and within our budget."
