Cicero Moraes has a long trackrecord with virtual facial reconstruction and even 'real life' reconstruction of damaged animals using 3D printing. Today he takes it one step further by helping out a human patient!
It is with great honour and joy that I communicate my participation, for the first time in fact, in the preparation of a human facial prosthesis. I started my studies in early 2016 with Dr. Rodrigo Salazar, who materialised the prosthesis and was kind enough to invite me, as a 3D designer, to compose the group led by Dr. Luciano Dib.
The team, made up of specialists from the Paulista University (UNIP) at São Paulo, University of Illinois at Chicago and Information Technology Center. This scanning is a basis for a digital preparation of the prosthesis made on Blender 3D software, with the help of the 3DCS addon developed by our team (myself, Dr. Everton da Rosa and Dalai Felinto). What we did with the innovative techniques of 3D modeling so as to optimise the quality of prototypes of prostheses, the merit is all of doctors Salazar, Dib and team.
A big hug!
