Instagram Live w/ Dr. Matteo Zanfabro : 3D Printing for Animals
Show Notes

I had a lot of fun speaking to Matteo Zanfabro (Instagram account: 3dvet.printing and playvet3d)  because of many good reasons. Not only we both love what 3D printing can do for healthcare but also share a passion for medical imaging, although our clients are very different. In this episode, we talked a little about his early journey into using 3D printing for veterinary medicine, and some unique challenges in adopting 3D printing for animals. There is certainly a lot for human doctors and veterinarians to learn from each others' experiences.  Of course, Dr. Zanfabro brought us a few interesting cases he has 3D printed.
