Mimics Innovation Conference: October 20-21
HeartPrint®: an Eye Opener
3D-Printed Hip
FDA Cleared Facial Implant
“A great collection of innovative minds pushing the 3D Printing technology forward in real life clinical applications and research." (Dr. J. Morris, M.D., Mayo Clinic)

Join Materialise's Mimics Innovation Conference in Leuven, Belgium. This two-day event is a learning opportunity for everyone involved in working with medical image data, from engineers, clinicians and surgeons to users and their managers. The conference has dedicated tracks on 3D Printing in hospitals, patient-specific guide and implant design, evidence-based cardiovascular R&D, and more!

HeartPrint® Model Helps 16 Year-Old Patient with a Heart Tumor

It’s devastating news when you hear that your grandchild was born with a heart tumor. Not knowing if he will have complications, if he will be able to live a normal life, and if he will enjoy a long life. This was the news that Christine White heard when her grandson Bradley was only three. When cardiologist Dr. Timothy Knilans and cardiac surgeon Dr. David Morales saw Bradley’s 3D-printed heart model, it was an eye opener.

3D-Printed Hip Puts Teenager Back on her Feet

A Swedish teenage girl was facing a lifetime in a wheelchair because of a congenital disease that left her with a severely deformed left hip joint. Her painful condition forced her to be home schooled. With the 3D-printed Mobelife aMace® implant and virtual planning in Materialise’s Mimics and 3-matic software, she is now pain-free, walking without crutches and going back to school like a normal teenager.

Towards a widespread clearance of 3D-printed medical devices worldwide

"With the clearance of our 3D-printed facial device, we now have the ability to treat these extremely complex cases in a highly effective and economical way, printing patient-specific maxillofacial implants from individualized MRI or CT digital image files from the surgeon," said Scott DeFelice, CEO of Oxford Performance Materials.

Welcome to Materialise

At Materialise, with our Mimics Innovation Suite, we're powering new innovations in biomedical research and helping others make discoveries that save lives. We're also taking patient-specific healthcare to new heights by working closely with experts in the planning and execution of complicated surgical procedures. Our solutions are comprehensive and flexible, and we invite you to explore our site and discover how they can work for you.


3D planning and custom implant design
Revolutionizing Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgeries with 3D Planning and Custom Implant Design

Complex cranio-maxillofacial cases are increasingly planned with 3D technology. Surgeons can simulate different treatment options and design and 3D print patient-specific surgical guides and custom implants. In this webinarDr. Lauri Wauters (University Hospital of Brussels, Belgium) will elaborate on one of her recent cases where she used Synthes ProPlan CMF and 3-matic software for surgical planning and the design of a patient-specific 3D-printed jaw implant.

Mimics Innovation Courses in Leipzig, Aachen and London

Materialise invites you to join one of our upcoming two-day Mimics Innovation Courses. Next to hands-on training sessions and demos, we will provide you with interesting lectures, giving you in-depth information and updates of the latest trends and technologies in orthopaedic, craniomaxillofacial, cardiovascular and pulmonary R&D. Get in touch with our engineering experts for possible collaborations in the future!

X-ray in Mimics
Increase Clinical Relevance with the new X-ray Module

In the new Mimics Innovation Suite release, you can for the first time combine X-Ray images with 3D models, drastically increasing the available clinical data for all sorts of engineering purposes, without increasing the scan cost or exposing patients to unnecessary radiation. Watch our X-ray webinar to learn how HSS and Zimmer use the new X-ray Module to increase clinical relevance.
