This partnership between both the companies will be seeing the 3D printing technology of Stratsys, which has been integrated into the Ricoh 3D of Ricoh USA for the workflow of the healthcare in order to increase the access to the 3D printed medical models for the clinicians and the medical facilities.
The offering of the company has been aiming to remove the barriers such as the staffing issues, requirements of training, and also the budget constraints for the providers of healthcare wishing for running to a 3D printing facility.
