3D Systems, one of the largest 3D printing companies in the world announced that it has launched an on-demand 3D printed anatomical model service.
Through this service, the company will provide a wide range of medical professionals with access to anatomical models 3D printed from their 3D digital files. The service has been launched to provide medical professionals enhanced 3D visualization for surgical planning as well as offer patient education.
How the Service Works?
Through the service, medical professionals can obtain models by following a few simple steps:
- Upload a 3D model file (STL, OBJ or PLY) to the company’s On-demand anatomical models website. Customers will then prepare models files with 3D Systems’ D2P software or any commercially available software
- Customers have the option to select from different materials depending on the desired use and request an instant quote
- The customer then reviews the quote and places the order in just one click.
- The finished model will arrive in approximately five business days
To expedite the process, the company has also created a seamless connection between its D2P Software and its On-Demand Anatomical Models website. This integration allows surgeons, radiologists, lab technicians and other medical professionals to quickly create accurate, digital anatomical models for medical imaging data.
Speaking about how the newly launched on-demand service from the company will benefit the healthcare community, Katie Weimer, Vice President, Medical Devices at 3D Systems said, “For more than 25 years, 3D Systems has assisted medical professionals through the combination of our anatomical modeling experience and our 3D printing expertise.”
“The healthcare industry is seeing the benefits provided through 3D printed anatomical models, and we are dedicated to continuing to expand our healthcare offerings to meet market needs. With the launch of our new On Demand Anatomical Modelling Service, we are making 3D printed models easier and more accessible to a broader range of the healthcare community,” added Weimer.
