SLS printed vertebrae made with FibreTuff. FibreTuff is SLS printer agnostic. The FibreTuff powder comes in 50 lbs packages
SLS printed vertebrae made with FibreTuff with a eco friendly barium coating solution. The coating provided a bone ring similar to real bone ring developed by Robert Joyc.
X- Ray and CT scan of the a printed calcaneus bone made with FibreTuff and eco friendly coated. FibreTuff had a bone ring of 3000 HU similar to a real bone ring at 2500 HU. The 3D printed CT scan of soft tissue was -250 not exactly at -10 to -50 HU but the discrepancy wasn’t significant per Radiologist. The Radiologist said the pictures was close to real bone and could be used as a phantom.
Though 3D printing the bar stock made with FibreTuff, it was CNC milled, laser cut with push pin for proof of concept performed by medical company for evaluation.
FibreTuff medical grade biomaterials is used to manufacture bone like prototypes for implants such as TLIF, Spine cages one can achieve interesting performance. For stl files to print bar stock contact firstname.lastname@example.org
An orthopedic spine implant for proof of concept made from 3D Printing FibreTuff. The CNC Machining process used PEEK parameters in cutting FibreTuff. FibreTuff will show a bone like appearance with no visible degradation of the cellulose fibers.
FibreTuff is biocompatible, not harmful to living tissue. FibreTuff has been tested by medical institutions showing conductive properties without coatings.
Benchmark for spine bone mass and quality
FibreTuff has exceptional attributes for coatings including Hydroxyapatite
This 3D printing anatomical calcaneus bone model made of FibreTuff with a laser sintering process can have bone like qualities such as good screw retention. The surgeon felt the printed bone resembled a 20 year old human bone.
Highly sophisticated 3D printing by nScrypt BAT using FibreTuff biomedical filament creates small micropore structure.
