Stratasys bone models

Stratasys (MN, USA) has announced that the J750 Digital Anatomy™ 3D printer has been enhanced, advancing 3D printing bone capabilities to be more aesthetically and biomechanically realistic. Stratasys reports that the enhanced software enables users to create models that mimic porous bone structures, fibrotic tissue and ligaments, behaving similarly to human bone. Having been launched to print soft-tissue mimics like heart and vascular tissues, the technology has aided preoperative preparation, medical training and medical device prototyping. “We believe that better preparation leads to better clinical outcomes. The mechanical properties of bone are so fundamental to the ability of our skeletons...
