Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

3D models are rising in popularity as a reference and diagnostic tool within the healthcare field. Med Dimensions has established a workflow in which bone models are generated directly from patient specific scans, then 3D printed. To improve the clinical relevance of these 3D models, materials need to be identified that replicate the mechanical properties and feeling of bone when being operated on. Additional concerns revolve around the anatomical accuracy during the manufacturing process. Melting, deforming, and nonrepresentative mechanical properties of traditional engineering plastic have previously limited the effectiveness of 3D printed bones as a surgical or educational simulation tool.
