3D-printed Replacement Skulls

Wenn ich mir demnächst mal wieder den Kopf zerbreche, gibt's Ersatz-Skulls aus dem 3D-Drucker.

The new OPM device is a cranial maxillo-facial (CMF) plate for skull reconstruction which can be used to replace up to 75% of the skull. Their device is made from PEKK (polyetherketoneketone), which has many of the desirable properties of the commonly used PEEK implant material — but it also has twice the compressive strength, making it an ideal material to replace any bone that counts user protection among its primary functions.
