MIRS 3D Printing Lab

The MIRS 3D Printing Lab (AHB 1034) provides a work-space for the Co-Directors, Dr. Boyce and Professor Gildon, to build 3D printed anatomic models, patient specific surgical aids and prototypes. Our current 3D printer (Form 2 SLA) uses several types of light sensitive resins. Each resin has unique physical properties and is opaque or translucent (see images below). The MIRS 3D Printing Lab, in the College of Allied Health is planning to accept print orders from other units on our campus by 4th Qtr of 2018 through the Allied Health Clinic. We expect most prints to be from one of  the following categories:

  • Anatomic instructional models (general, not patient specific)
  • Patient specific pre-surgical planning models (usually anatomic models)
  • Patient specific surgical tools (cutting and drilling guides)
  • Research and development prototype
