Time: 13:00 – 16:00

Course Director: Dr. Waleed Althobaity


  • To learn about basic 3D printing technologies and basic Orthopedic application of 3D printing
  • To learn how to segment a medical imaging scan with Materialize Mimics software and export that anatomy of interest into a digital 3D printable model.
  • To perform Post-processing editing and designing using Computer Aided Designing (CAD) software 3-Matic for smoothing, wrapping and designing prior to the physical creation of the 3D model.


'3D printing' is a rapid manufacturing technique to produce a physical model from a digital file with layer-by-layer deposition. 3D printing in medicine has been expanded in the last years and widely used in pre-surgical planning, patient’s specific guide, and instruments creation and education. One of the major medical specialty application of 3D printing is orthopedic. The purpose of this hands-on course is to teach the attendee how they create 3D printing bone/orthopedic model from a standard Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) data using Materialize Mimics software. The attendee will be given access to Materialize Mimics software and a general overview of the software functions will be demonstrated initially. After that step by step demonstration how they can do a bone/orthopedic model starting from importing the DICOM file, accurate segmentation of the region of interested and creation of the part. The created part from the region of interest then will import in the 3Matic CAD software for post-processing editing, smoothing and wrapping. After that stereolithography (STL) file format will be generated which is the primary file format accepted by the 3D printers. During the workshop, there will be a PowerPoint demonstration of each step and imaging of the final models.
