3D printed bone implants. Computer model of a patient's fractured tibia (shin bone), showing the location of an implant (red) that will be 3D printed to replace the damaged section of bone. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, creates objects by the successive addition of layers of material. Here, each 3D printed implant is constructed from bioceramic powder and custom made to fit each customer. Photographed at OsseoMatrix, France.
