The successful implementation of in-hospital 3D printing programs is a collaborative effort of hospital leadership, clinical champions, finance, and business development. Often the programs are ramped up before considering the engineer and how he/she could contribute to the effort. The engineer plays an important role as he/she is the one responsible for the day-to-day operations of the program. Having a clear understanding of the workflow for 3D printing anatomic models and surgical guides is something that the engineer brings to the table and isn’t something the other members of the team are initially aware of.
