Four years after undergoing life saving surgery which required almost all of the left side of his face to be removed, Eric Moger (60) has been fitted with a new prosthetic face thanks in part to 3D printing technology. The mouth implant created by Mr Dawood During a routine operation to remove nasal polyps, Mr Moger was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, a condition which causes small growths or polyps to turn into tumors. At the time of diagnosis the cancer was already very advanced requiring surgeons at the University College London Hospital to remove almost half of his face (his left eye, cheekbone and most of his jaw) in order to save his life.
3D printing is still in its relative infancy, but more and more folks are using machines like the MakerBot Replicato r and Formlab’s Form 1 to turn digital plans into physical reality.
It’s an incredible way of making your imagination real: whatever you want to do or have dreamt of doing, 3D Printing Systems can take the idea and turn it into a physical reality. While 3D print technology has been around for over 20 years, it’s only now that lapsing patents on early technology has created Read the rest here: FROM `THOUGHTS’ TO `THINGS’ visit this page
