Models are available in plastic and ceramics.
The revolutionary ceramic model appears as real bone during CT/MR scanning which makes it ideal for educational purposes, eliminating the need to use donor bone.
Customized anatomic models of your specific cases are available upon request as well as a range of standard models.
Research Line ― Tissue Scaffolds
Our 3D printed tissue scaffolds can be customized to your specific needs in terms of material, pores, and design of the scaffold.
As the powder particles can be derived from any material, the tissue scaffolds have many potential usages.

P3D Bone is a 3D printed patient-fitted bone implant based on the patient’s own CT/MR scan.
The fully customized implant enables simple and short procedure times, low risk of post-surgical complications and secures optimal aesthetic and functional outcomes.
Our implants are made from a degradable bio-ink of tricalcium phosphate and fatty acids which are natural bodily components. This allows implants to remodel over time and become natural living bone.
The implants’ bone-like internal porosities and cavities allow for the creation of channels for blood vessels and nerves within the implants. These channels are critical for bone regeneration and result in a strong ingrowth of bone and fast recovery.
P3D Bone with Additives
The 3D printed bone implant can release one or more additives over a pro-longed period of time as the resorption speed and drug release rate can be controlled by varying the fatty acid tail length.
This allows for a local long-term controlled drug release and thereby a more effective way of dosing medication which reduces the amount of the drug needed. This helps to contain costs, reduces the development of resistant bacteria and benefits patients, as lower doses are less harmful to the liver and kidneys that metabolize the drug.
Intended Use Case of P3D Bone
The hospital or clinic performs a CT scan of the patient.
Based on the scan, the surgeon 3D models the implant using a software tool provided by Particle3D.
The surgeon accepts an implant design, and this is sent to a conveniently located Particle3D Hub.
The hub prints, sterilizes and freights the implant to the hospital or clinic.
The hospital or clinic receives the implant within 1-2 weeks and performs the surgery.
