  • Materials for Medical 3D Printing

    When ordering a 3D printed model from embodi3D's 3D Printing Service it's important to consider the material used to print your model. We offer a variety of 3D printing materials and processes to best meet your needs. The best material will vary depending on the size, anatomy, and intended purpose of your model. Not all materials are available on all models due to size constraints.

    Strong white plastic

    Strong white plastic
    • Durable plastic that is best for large bone or general 3D prints. We use white polylactic acid (PLA) and an FDM printing process. Strong white plastic is the best choice for larger parts that require fine, but not very fine detail. Models are very strong and resistant to breakage. PLA is a safe, nontoxic, biodegradable material commonly used for 3D printing. 
    • Minimum size: 5 x 5 x 2 cm (length, width, height)
    • Maximum size: 35 x 40 x 45 cm (length, width, height)
    • Layer thickness: 0.5 mm

    Strong White Plastic 1/2 Size

    Strong White Plastic 1/2 Size
    • Same material as Strong White Plastic above.
    • Printed at 50% size of the full model dimensions.

    Strong red plastic

    Strong red plastic
    • Durable plastic that is best for cardiovascular or general 3D prints. It is identical to strong white plastic except for the red color. We use polylactic acid (PLA) and an FDM printing process.

PLA is a safe, nontoxic, biodegradable material commonly used for 3D printing.
    • Minimum size: 5 x 5 x 2 cm (length, width, height)
    • Maximum size: 35 x 40 x 45 cm (length, width, height)

PLA is a safe, nontoxic, biodegradable material commonly used for 3D printing. 
    • Minimum size: 5 x 5 x 2 cm (length, width, height)
    • Maximum size: 35 x 40 x 45 cm (length, width, height)
    • Layer thickness: 0.5 mm

    Strong brown plastic

    Strong brown plastic
    • Durable plastic that is best for large bone, skin or general 3D prints. We use brown polylactic acid (PLA) and an FDM printing process. Strong brown plastic is the best choice for larger parts that require fine, but not very fine detail. Models are very strong and resistant to breakage. PLA is a safe, nontoxic, biodegradable material commonly used for 3D printing. 
    • Minimum size: 5 x 5 x 2 cm (length, width, height)
    • Maximum size: 35 x 40 x 45 cm (length, width, height)
    • Layer thickness: 0.5 mm

    Strong silver plastic

    Strong silver plastic
    • Durable plastic that is best for large bone, skin or general 3D prints. We use silver polylactic acid (PLA) and an FDM printing process. Strong silver plastic is the best choice for larger parts that require fine, but not very fine detail. Models are very strong and resistant to breakage.

    Multicolor plastic

    multicolor plastic
    • Durable plastic that is best for cardiovascular, bone or general 3D prints. Choose any two Strong Plastic choices and we will print your model with parts of different colors. Specify colors and corresponding parts in order instructions. We use polylactic acid (PLA) and an FDM printing process. Strong plastic is the best choice for parts that require fine, but not very fine detail. Models are very strong and resistant to breakage. PLA is a safe, nontoxic, biodegradable material commonly used for 3D printing.
    • Minimum size: 5 x 5 x 2 cm (length, width, height)
