Earlier this year, Desktop Engineering launched it’s first Rapid Ready sweepstakes, with a Stratasys uPrint SE 3D Print Pack as the prize. It included everything a design engineer would need for professional quality 3D printing: a uPrint SE 3D Printer, a WaveWash Support Cleaning System, and a start-up kit of Ivory ABSplus build material, support material, EcoWorks Cleaning Agent and modeling bases.
Thousands of design engineers entered, and the winner is ...
Maegan Spencer, a design engineer at Avinger, a medical device manufacturer based in Redwood City, CA.
The uPrint SE 3D Print Pack from Stratasys will no doubt help Maegan and her colleagues as they develop medical devices for the treatment of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease.
Founded in 2007, Avinger develops next generation catheter-based technologies to help save the limbs of hundreds of thousands of patients at the height of peripheral artery disease, or PAD, and who will statistically undergo unnecessary amputation unless treated otherwise. Avinger markets Wildcat and Kittycat catheters, and is currently developing technologies that guide endovascular therapy and intervention with real-time imaging capabilities
Maegan says she plans to use the uPrint SE 3D Print Pack to rapidly prototype handle designs and to create large-scale models of intricate assemblies.
Thank you to all who entered the sweepstakes, and to Stratasys. Congratulations Maegan!
