    3D Printing Helmets for Babies Needing Cranial Orthosis

    October 27, 2021

    In the Advanced Manufacturing Center at Javelin, a TriMech company, the Professional Services team uses their expertise and equipment to 3D print custom corrective helmets to treat babies with abnormal head shapes.

    It’s typical for a newborn to have an abnormal head shape caused by the birth process. If significant flat spots or abnormal shaping are still present after a few months, intervention might be prescribed.

    One treatment is cranial remolding (or cranial orthosis) with corrective helmet therapy. Each helmet is custom-made, based on a digital scan of the child’s head. The helmet works with the natural growth of the infant and the void space inside redirects head growth. The treatment is used to correct cosmetic deformity, realign facial asymmetry, and (in rare cases) prevent vision and hearing concerns. Another consideration is making sure sports helmets fit later in life.

    October 13, 2021

    Phone interviews are becoming increasingly common during the interview process. It may seem nice to not have the nervousness and sweaty palms that face-to-face interviews bring, but research has shown that about 55% of communication is completely nonverbal, so a phone call will inhibit the quality of communication you have with the recruiter. You won’t be able to present a professional image or positive body language that are key first impressions. This factor makes utilizing the interview preparation tips detailed in this blog critical to leave a good impression and get hired.

    Why You Should Use 3D Printing for Capstone and Senior Design Projects

    October 12, 2021

    One of the last steps you may have in proving yourself for your chosen industry is to implement your knowledge, teamwork and design skills on a multi-semester final project. Your results will be presented in front of other engineers, potential sponsors, and a possible connection that could propel you in the job market. These final projects are important, especially how your design process will parallel workflows that practicing engineers, designers and manufacturers go through. Honing in on a design, accumulating research and creating the best solution to a problem is something these design firms go through every day.

    What to Do When You’ve Been Invited to a 3DEXPERIENCE Project

    October 11, 2021

    Learning how to use a new and unfamiliar tool can be intimidating. Think back to the days when you first learned how to use a computer. You had to learn how to type on a keyboard, you had to know where your files were stored, which applications performed which tasks, what each button of the mouse actually did, etc. You probably had some guidance along the way too. After a while, using a computer became pretty intuitive, and you were creating spreadsheets and typing up documents like a pro. It's the same with 3DEXPERIENCE. Just like that first computer, it can be daunting when you’re first introduced to the platform. Fortunately, TriMech is here to help and guide you through the steps when you’ve been invited to a 3DEXPERIENCE project.
