AbstractIn general, the 3 D printed medical models are made based on virtual digital models obtained from machines such as the computed tomography scanner. However, due to the limited accuracy of CT scanning technology, which is usually 1 millimeter, there are differences between scanned results and the real structure. Besides, the collected data can hardly be printed directly because of some errors in the model. In this paper, we present a general and efficient procedure to process the digital skull data to make the printed structures meet the requirements of anatomy education, which combines the use of five 3 D manipulation tools and the procedure can be finished within 6 hours. Then the model is printed and compared with the cadaveric skull from frontal, left, right and anterior views respectively. The printed model can describe the correct structure and details of the skull clearly, which can be considered as a good alternative to the cadaveric skull. The manipulation procedure presented in this study is an easily available and cost-effective way to obtain a printed skull model from the original CT data, which has a considerable economic and social benefit for the medical education. The steps of the data processing can be performed easily. The cost for the 3 D printed model is also low. Outcomes of this study can be applied widely in processing skull data.
