Das 3D Print Lab versteht sich als Dienstleister und Forschungsplattform für Datenvisualisierung und additive Fertigungsverfahren. Wir sind ein interdisziplinäres Team aus Chirurgen, Radiologen und Medical Engineering mit dem Ziel, neue Formen der Präsentation und Einsatzzwecke für dreidimensionale Bilddaten zu finden. Ausgangspunkt hierfür ist die langjährige Expertise der Abteilung für Mund-, Kiefer- und Gesichtschirurgie, wo 3D-Modelle schon heute routinemässig zum Einsatz kommen.
Von uns hergestellte 3D-Modelle unterstützen auch andere chirurgische Disziplinen bei der OP-Planung und werden darüber hinaus zur Patientenaufklärung eingesetzt. Darüber hinaus finden 3D-gedruckte Bilddaten in Lehre und Ausbildung Einsatz.
Als Institution innerhalb des Universitätsspitals Basel sind wir eine aktive Forschungsplattform und stehen als Projektpartner zur Verfügung.

Surgical Guides: Precision in Every Incision
Imagine having a 3D map for your osteotomies, tailor-made for every patient. Our cutting guides are designed to optimize fibula reconstructions, craniotomies, and other common procedures, where precise cutting through the hard tissues are required. They provide surgeons with a roadmap, ensuring implants and medical devices are latter placed with pinpoint accuracy.
From Digital to Reality: Our process seamlessly integrates CT or MRI image data acquisition with virtual planning. By integrating this data, we can specifically outline the future shape of the planned cuts and we can design a device which highlights with these limits, while taking into account the patients’ unique anatomy. After design, we can bring these cutting guides to life by using a 3D Printing procedure called Vat Polymerization, which uses a high-precision laser to cure liquid resin, layer by layer, in order to create intricate and accurate 3D models. The resins used in this procedure are biocompatible, which ensure optimal patient safety.

Personalized anatomical models: Unveiling the Human Body in 3D
Imagine a world where medical professionals can hold a patient's unique anatomy in their hands, gaining unprecedented insights and honing their skills, diagnostics and procedures with absolute precision. Welcome to the future of medical education and practice, courtesy of 3D Printed Personalized Anatomical Models.
In order to bring these anatomical models to life, we incorporate patient specific CT/MRI data of the targeted area with an array of 3D printing procedures. From the most basic, to the most complex manufacturing procedure, we are starting of with Multi-Color Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), which enables us to use biodegradable thermoplastic materials, that are selectively melted and deposited in order to create the anatomical models, in a layer by layer method. This process enables the production of low-cost, multi-colored models, which can be recycled when they are no longer needed.
Binder Jetting is a game-changer in the realm of 3D printing. This technique combines speed and precision to produce anatomical models that defy convention. By selectively binding layers of gypsum, it brings personalized anatomical models to life swiftly and accurately, making them accessible for a wide range of medical applications, when supports are desired on the surface of the models and the models are not subjected to severe handling conditions.
Material Jetting is the pinnacle of 3D printing technology, delivering anatomical models that are nothing short of masterpieces. With the ability to print multiple materials in a single pass, it allows for the creation of highly detailed, multilayered structures. This technique enables the recreation of not only the visual aspects but also the tactile feel of human anatomy, providing an immersive learning experience like never before.
