dc.description.abstract3D printing is emerging in the healthcare field. Being able to reproduce organ models with low-cost and sustainable technology is generating a big impact on professionals working in the medical industry. This work aims to illustrate the potential of the material extrusion technique by replicating 3D models used for helping surgeons in pre-operative planning. The properties of a standard thermoplastic PLA for 3D printing are compared with other thermoplastics with elastomeric properties whose application is arising nowadays in this field, namely PEBA, TPO, and TPU. This research covers three real cases of study: a pulmonary fistula, a bone tumor, and a replication of the spinal column. The cases helped anticipate potential problems during surgery and achieve good quality in educating and training new professionals. Finally, an optimal printing configuration is presented. The settings of the printing parameters selected are the ones that maximize the inter and intra-layer bonding, which is important to achieve good shape results and consistency of the models. Although the printed parts are not meant to support a big mechanical effort, it is important to relate the selection of the printing parameters to the adhesion of filaments in order to reduce the quantity of material deposited during the manufacturing process, and consequently, reduce the printing time. Also, to achieve a realistic model that can be of effective help for the medical faculty when preparing their interventions and during their diagnostic process.
