Bone Scanning and Reconstruction – 3D Printing Validation

  • The Problem

    Validation of 3D Printing Process for Medical purpose.
    The customer wanted to validate the 3D printing process for medical purpose.


    Our Solution


    Representation of the process used to create Rapid Prototype tools to assist surgeon during Preoperative Planning and for Training purpose.

    INPUT – The Input of the process is the bone.
    PROCESS – The process to verify include 3 main steps:

      • TAC/CT scanning – the bone is scanned using Bio Imaging acquisition device like TAC or CT using the same procedure and operative step performed during ordinary clinical investigation.
      • 3D Reconstruction – the raw data obtained from TAC / CT will be processed in order to obtain a .stl model of the bone.
      • 3D printing of the .stl bone will be performed.

    OUTPUT – The output is the Rapid Prototype of the bone

    We support the customer in the design and development of a suitable approach for validation the process.

    We performed and compare laser scanning of patient bone (INPUT) and 3d printed bone (OUTPUT), to verify the precision of reconstruction process.
    We defined the specifics process parameter to monitor in order to control the process.

    We performed IQ/OQ/PQ Validation of the 3D printing process.

    We selected and define the physical, chemical and mechanical test needed to control the quality of process and product.

  • Our Results

    Validated 3D printing process.
