Fibretuff® Biomedical Polymer

3D print anatomical bone models that offer realistic alternatives to expensive and difficult to obtain natural bone.  FibreTuff® has excellent bone-like qualities, making it ideal for printing medical, dental, and veterinary bone models.  Use for pre-surgical assessment, simulation, and training.

Fibretuff® is an outstanding alternative to cadaver bone and allows you to create your own 3D printed anatomical bone models including femurs, calcaneus, talus, metatarsal, skull cap, mandible, sacrum, and many more.  

Fibretuff® Attributes:

  • Non-toxic, NAMSA Class 1, USP Class VI for Class II devices
  • Create patient-specific bone models 
  • Excellent screw retention
  • Realistic drilling, cutting, and sawing
  • Create variable bone density simulations
  • Radio opaque - visible to X-Ray and MRI imaging

We extrude this filament in-house using a patent-pending formulation from Fibretuff® Medical Biopolymers LLC.  This filament is user friendly and doesn't require extensive drying like many other highly engineered resins. Fibretuff® can be 3D Printed at a very high resolution with extreme accuracy for natural "bone-like" appearance and texture. This unique composition has a flexible behavior with memory. 

Please note - this product is not intended for implantation.
