Kidney Tray[edit | edit source]

Project developed by [[[User:Jordan Null|Jordan Null]] (talk) 05:10, 5 December 2019 (UTC)]

Abstract[edit | edit source]

  1. In an effort to help health posts in Dolakha district in Nepal, Field Ready has requested some medical tools that can be 3D printed. One of the items that they could find beneficial would be a Kidney Tray. Kidney Trays are used to hold surgical tools and keep them from being contaminated.

Bill of Materials[edit | edit source]

  1. Kidney Tray Part Files

Tools needed for fabrication of the OSAT[edit | edit source]

  1. MOST Delta RepRap or similar RepRap 3-D printer
  2. PLA filament or something similar

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions[edit | edit source]

  1. Print the part, fill with water to check for leaks, if there are no leaks, the part is okay for use.
  2. If part leaks, re-print and adjust the print speed or layer width to get better results

Common Problems and Solutions[edit | edit source]

  1. Printing the Kidney tray too fast could lead to leaks in the final result, as this is a medical device, the part will become void if subject to leaks. To fix print, adjust print speed, material, or layer width to get better prints.
