3D printed skulls
Most of a human skull can be created with 3D printing. Scientists have replaced up to 75% of a patient’s skull with a custom-fitted plastic implant made with the technology. A patient's head is first imaged with a 3D scanner, and then details are etched by hand to help cells and bone attach to the implant naturally.
