Reproduction of human organs using 3D printing

Reproduction of various human organs, mainly using SLS and SLA technologies, for surgical preparation or as an educational aid that facilitate preparing medical teams. The 3D models produced from medical imaging scans after segmentation result in tangible plastic models that, when held in the hand, clearly show the vast majority of changes and lesions.

Dental Kit

Modular educational training set for dental students with freely variable content, commissioned by the Department of Dentistry and Oral Surgery of the University of Pécs, using SLA and SLS technologies and silicone casting.

Cooling Plate

We were commissioned to design a medical device, which was achieved by designing a closed cooling plate with the thinnest possible wall thickness, using the most extensive pipe system able to circulate cooling fluid inside, and it was produced with an SLA printer. Transparency was also a criterion to allow observation of the coolant flow, which was achieved with FormLabs’ transparent resin. The cooling plates function as accessories to a device for carrying out various biological experiments, so the design had to take into account the basic needs of the device for efficient operation.

Skull moulds

In surgical design, SLA technology is used to print the moulds required to make the skull implant from which the mould is made with precision at tenths of a millimetre.

Pet goggle design

The UP-3D Centre has designed pet goggles for experiments at the Institute of Physiology. The glasses, printed in flexible material using SLA technology, fit the actual head shape well and allow for easy replacement of lenses.
