London's EDs first in world to get 3D printers

In what I believe is a world first in Emergency Medicine, the Emergency Department in London, Ontario has deployed the first of two 3D printers at the Victoria campus. Once the kinks are worked out, the next printer will be deployed at the University campus.

For some geek talk, we have installed a Reprap Prusa i3 with RAMPS 1.4 electronics, and a single Greg's Wade extruder with a J-head MK V-B 0.4mm nozzle. We will be using Blender and FreeCAD to design, Slic3r to slice and Printrun to print. We will only use PLA plastic, a corn-based biodegradable material.
