Cloud-based app turns DICOM data to realistic models

3D Systems has introduced as a cloud-based service that allows medical professionals to quickly create, view, share and print full-colour 3D anatomical models directly from digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) data. According to the firm, Bespoke Modelling affords medical professionals the power to diagnose and communicate more effectively, simplify medical imaging, improve medical instruction and enables smoother patient referrals.

The app, the company said, makes it easy to view patient-specific 3D data, bookmark views, add annotations, explore specific anatomical structures and then order colour 3D cloud printed models or print on-site. 3D-printed models can also be used in a teaching environment mimicking realistic, bone-like properties when sawed and drilled.

The company also announced on September 10 that it has acquired The Sugar Lab, a start-up micro-design firm based in Los Angeles, California, dedicated to 3D printing customised, multi-dimensional, edible confections in real sugar. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The Sugar Lab adopted 3D Systems' Color Jet Printing (CJP) technology to print on a sugar bed using different flavoured edible binders that meet all food safety requirements. 3D Systems plans to immediately integrate The Sugar Lab 3D printing technique into its professional and consumer content-to-print platforms with a variety of production-quality applications as well as the ability to 3D print indulgences at home.

Subscriptions to the cloud-based application start at $30 per month with immediate availability on
