Educate with more detailed models

Strengthen your expertise by using the latest 3D printing technology of Materialise HeartPrint. Use 3D-printed models to educate and train students on complex anatomy. Even experienced surgeons and interventionalists can benefit by learning the latest techniques and devices, or in experimenting with innovative approaches to cases.

Discover cardiovascular models we helped create

From bench to bedside

Perform tests with personalized or anatomically accurate models, and increase chances of success in clinical trials, by improving patient selection and planning. Build solid evidence and get the validation you require for regulatory submissions. Our improved HeartPrint Flex Plus material has been shown to be optimal in replicating the mechanical properties of arterial tissue, and is more durable than existing materials available on the market.

Materialise HeartPrint
for your cases

Materialise offers the largest range of 3D printing materials for cardiovascular modeling available on the market. Transparency, flexibility and thousands of possible color combinations now exist to create the best representation of the cardiac anatomy and pathology. Our turnkey service starts the moment you send us your DICOM images and ends when you are satisfied with your cardiac model.

Our team of application and clinical engineers is there to guide you in selecting the appropriate material, and is happy to support you in obtaining the most functional, and anatomically realistic models possible. You can expect a model of the highest quality, thanks to our robust quality system for anatomical modelling, and a fast turnaround time, thanks to our global manufacturing centers.

“The main benefit of 3D Printing for me is to show that individualized anatomy, as in congenital heart disease each anatomy is unique. And when we’re talking about operating and doing complex procedures on patients, to be able to see and feel that representation on a one-to-one scale really means that we can plan the best procedure, plan the best and most appropriate surgery and make sure we minimize our errors in judgment.”
– Dr. Tarique Hussain, Pediatric Cardiologist, UT Southwestern, UK
