3D printing is particularly well suited to the manufacture of medical implants, surgical tools, and bone models, and there are a host of other possible applications in this field.
3D printing is highly suitable for the manufacture of implants. A mesh-type structure can be used for the implant so that the patient’s own tissue will grow inside the implant. A honeycomb structure, on the other hand, is lightweight but strong.
Also, 3D printing is a cost-effective option for manufacturing a unique surgery tool, for example.
The printed implant can be fitted to the customer’s bone model even before the surgery, which will considerably reduce the duration of the surgery and the patient’s recovery period.
