Design and evaluation of 3D printed instruments for eye surgery

Additive manufacturing (AM) techniques continue to evolve pushing the boundaries of what is possible to print. For example, a strong benefit of 3D printing is that complex shapes can be printed in advanced, integrated 3D layouts without the need for assembly. However, one of the main drawbacks of 3D printing is the limited manufacturing accuracy, making it difficult to create tight tolerances in miniature high precision applications.
