At Vosfox medical, we have several development projects running. One of these projects, is a cool project on solvent-cast 3Dprinting, also called Solvent-cast additive manufacturing (SAM). In this project, we are remodelling an FDM printer. Other projects are building a filament extrusion line, for medical grade filaments.

SAM is a 3D printing technique that prints polymers from a solution. In this project we have rebuild an Creality Ender 3 V2 printer, to make it suitable for solution printing. We adjusted the printer, by printing an holder for the syringe and make adjustments to the motor.

We completed the first part of this SAM project. Second part of the project is printing with an alginate solution, as described in the literature to test the printer. Third part of the project is printing with a polymer solution in a solvent.
