Does anyone have any idea about the cost of rapid prototyping for an orthopedic implant? (knee)

you are going to need some addition equipment to support the metalizer, like a good band saw, some type of milling capability to do an final clean up, Warsaw, Ind.has a large amount of Ortho going on so there were several support shops that could do clean up at a reasonable price.
I didn’t give you cost for the building but the prices for the equipment is real in 2009. the only thing I can thing you would need is a good engineer/technician and an engineer or two that can take a design and turn it into a a very thin series of drawings and can interface with the technician about the design and running time,
Going to go help this helps,
In metal, varies from 3-400 to 1000. Better material is more expensive. A lot of the guys I know like scicast from www.scicontech.com because its accurate and functional and not too pricey.
