A veterinary college is using 3D printing technology to create models students will use to practice surgical skills.
Lincoln Memorial University-College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM) will incorporate the 3D models into an innovations elective course that will be offered in January 2019.
In the summer of 2018, LMU-CVM acquired two 3D printers–a resin-based 3D printer and a fused deposition modeling printer. Multiple types of materials can be used in the development process. For example, soft resins mimic tissues, while bone colored resins can be used for anatomy. This greatly expands the number of models that LMU is able to develop.…Read More
