A Ready-to-Deploy 3D Printing Solution for Hospitals

Mimics inPrint software and the Formlabs Form 2 3D printer together provide a complete and cost-effective plug-and-print solution, easy to integrate into existing hospital infrastructures. The package offers integration on all levels, from DICOM and PACS to software and 3D printing.

the steps from patient scan to 3D print: image aquisition, PACS, medical device software, 3d printer, and anatomical model

The proven components of this 3D printing package facilitate the implementation of patient-specific solutions at an affordable cost-per-part for quick return on investment.

Walk Through the Process of Patient Scan to 3D Print

“3D printing allows for a cost-effective, rapid, and accurate representation of both anatomy and pathology, which in turn provides an avenue for more comprehensive pre-surgical planning, solidification of abstract research concepts, and improved patient care through physician education and training.”

- Gene Kitamura, M.D., Medical Director, 3D Printing Lab, Assistant Professor, Division of Musculoskeletal Radiology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center

A Streamlined Process With High-Quality Results

Materialise Mimics inPrint makes it easy to reconstruct accurate virtual 3D-printable anatomic models based on DICOM images. The software integrated with existing local hospital IT platforms (PACS / DICOM) and includes access to high-end support and technical expertise on 3D printing from routine to complex applications.

Using Mimics inPrint, physicians and technologists can send files for printing directly to the Form 2, an SLA 3D printer that's easy to use and implement in a medical environment at a fraction of the cost of traditional industrial-grade 3D printers.
 

A low cost-per-part means that ROI is quickly proven, and scaling to larger printing volumes remains economical.

Both software and hardware are intuitive and easy to use, and Formlabs’ free Dashboard platform makes it easy to track and manage printing, especially in higher volumes.

Save time by quickly generating 3D-printable models and post-processing parts with the option of an automated washing system that streamlines printing and reduces required labor.

 

Bring Materialise Models to Life

3D printed models help healthcare providers to better understand complex fracture patterns, including this model of a fractured hip used for educational and research purposes. This model was prepared using Mimics inPrint and cost only $23.38 in materials when printed on the Form 2 in White Resin.

These models are used to explain complex pathologies to residents, medical students, and patients. In this case, reconstructing the pathology in 3D clarified the surgeon’s view of the pathology and its orientation.
