  • 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

    • 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: 10 x 10 x 10 cm (length, width, height)
    • Maximum size: 35 x 40 x 45 cm (length, width, height)
    • Layer thickness: 0.6 mm

    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. Strong red 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: 10 x 10 x 10 cm (length, width, height)
    • Maximum size: 35 x 40 x 45 cm (length, width, height)
    • Layer thickness: 0.6 mm

    Detailed white resin

    • Detailed white plastic that is great for small to moderate sized dental or highly detailed bone prints. We use UV cured resin using a stereolithography printing process. Detailed white plastic is the best choice for parts that require very fine detail. Models may break if dropped or subjected to impact. 
    • Minimum size: 3 x 3 x 3 cm (length, width, height)
    • Maximum size: 14 x 14 x 17 cm (length, width, height)
    • Layer thickness: 0.1 mm
