3D Printing and Forensic Reconstruction Put to Work in Ohio Cold Case

We’ve seen 3D printing used in facial reconstruction before. A lot of times the technology is used to learn more about the bones of not only the skull, but also the body, from long-gone historical figures, like with Lucy, the famous Australopithecus afarensis, or a centuries-old skull from the Battle of Culloden. It can also be of […]

3D Printed Skull Models Make Nasal Endoscopy Easier on Everyone

I know a few people who are guilty of ignoring potential health problems because they just don’t want to deal with uncomfortable or painful testing procedures. I get that; I could probably benefit from getting my chronic sinus issues looked into, but the thought of a nasal endoscopy is so odious to me that I’d […]

A First in China: Baby’s Birth Defect is Reversed and Skull Re-Shaped Thanks to 3D Printing

Recently a surgery in China changed the life of a little baby who has been having a very rough go of it since birth. The eight-month-old boy was born with craniosynostosis, a condition affecting the structure of the cranium as the bones of the skull close before the brain has a chance to form completely. […]

3D Model of Centuries-Old Skull from Battle of Culloden Reveals New Information

Every now and then we have to freshen up on our military history. Why? Because 3D modeling and printing technology is being used to enhance artifact research and produce replicas of weapons used in historic battles. Occasionally it is also used to reproduce found bone fragments — like this skull found at the Battle of Culloden site. This battle was the last confrontation of the Jacobite rising against […]

Montreal: 3D Printed Model Assists in Successful Facial Reconstruction of Patient's Crushed Cheekbone & Eye Floor

Plastic surgeons, as we know, operate on the literal cutting edge. While their more cosmetic and elective procedures are often very much held up for criticism and even controversy, there is no doubt that often these surgeons are called in to help in crucial situations for rectifying disfigurement due to accidents, infection, and congenital issues.
