Seng Yam in Malaysia had a tumor in his jawbone which affected his lifestyle for years, and eventually left him unable to eat.
Removing the tumor also meant removing part of the jawbone. This is how surgeons Hospital Kuala Lumpur used Materialise surgical planning software to reconstruct Seng Yam’s jawbone, using a section of his fibula: a bone from his leg. #3dprinting #surgicalplanning #surgicalguides

How do you think this Trimble UAS UX5 drone was built?
By #3Dprinting, and right here at Materialise! Here’s the story behind the manufacturing of this surveying and mapping drone.
Trimble UAS, formerly known as Gatewing, has a long-standing partnership with Materialise. It started back when they were designing the surveying and mapping drone Gatewing X100, for which Materialise provided rapid prototyping services. Four years and a co-creation session later, ...

+MythBusters wanted to find out if +Homer Simpson could really stop a 5,000-pound wrecking ball from destroying a house, like in The Simpsons movie. So... they needed a Homer replica. Where do you get that? At Materialise, with some help from #3Dprinting #simpsons #thesimpsons  
All Simpsons' fans will remember the scene in The Simpsons Movie where Homer Simpson swings through the air on a wrecking ball and absorbs the shock with his potbelly. That's impossible, isn't it? Can Homer really stop a 5000-pound wrecking ball from destroying a house?

Removing a tumor often requires a buffer margin for the surgical cuts. But for six-year-old Helena, that margin would have meant amputating her knee. This is how Dr. Gwen Sys managed to save Helena’s knee while removing a malignant tumor, with the help of a 3D-printed model and surgical guides.
Six-year-old Helena had a malignant tumor in her upper left leg. A condition which had earlier appeared to be a bone infection was revealed after medical imaging to be worse than feared: bone cancer. To complicate things further, the tumor was located close to Helena's knee.
