Stereolithography (STL) is a method of organ-model-production based on computed tomography scans which enables the representation of complex 3-dimensional anatomical structures. Surfaces and internal structures of organs can be produced by polymerization of UV-sensitive liquid resin using a laserbeam. In oral and maxillofacial surgery this technique is advantageous for reconstruction of severe skull defects because a more accurate preoperative planning is possible. Using recently developed… CONTINUE READING
