Osteo3D Releases Online Repository of Medical Models for 3D Printing
Osteo3D has released an online repository of more than 100 medical 3D models. Patient information is private, and some of the “live models” have been made anonymous. The online platform is powered by cloud printing site df3d and is meant to increase awareness of the usefulness of 3D printing among healthcare professionals. The models are available to doctors and other registered medical professionals online, which allows them to compare their own patient’s 3D files with Osteo3D models.
Medical professionals can 3D-print these models at home or wherever they have access to a 3D printer. If a doctor or medical student doesn’t have a 3D printer, he or she can order a print directly from Osteo3D. Osteo3D hopes that by collaborating with healthcare professionals, the tech industry, and academic institutions, it will help facilitate access and lower costs for the use of 3D printing in the healthcare field.
