Our latest publication in Frontiers in Surgery outline our experience in utilising 3D models to improve surgical planning and logistics for patients undergoing complex total hip arthroplasty. A great effort by 3dMedLab students Michael Jiang and Gordon Chen, Jasamine Coles-Black, and Austin Health orthopaedic surgeon Matthew Alexander. You can read the full article here.
We love collaboration — especially when our own Dr Jasamine Coles-Black and A/Prof Jason Chuen work with amazing people like Mathilde Desselle, Dr Marianne Kirrane, Dr Ian Chao, Prof Mia Woodruff and A/Prof Clair Sullivan!

The 3dMedLab is still beavering away – our most recent publication is a systematic review of 3d printed phantoms for AAA and EVAR. Thanks again to Dr Jasamine Coles-Black, Prof Damien Bolton, Mr Domenic Robinson, and A/Prof Jason Chuen.
You can find it online whilst we wait for a paper publication date!
We seem to be humming along through 2021 with more publications in the works. Our latest is this article published in a Frontiers in Surgery Special Edition from Dr Jasamine Coles-Black, Prof Damien Bolton and A/Prof Jason Chuen reviewing the role of 3D Printed Vascular Models. Make sure you check it out!
It’s 2021 and Happy New Year 🎉 to all of our friends around the globe! We kick off the year with another publication — this time in the European Journal of Vascular Surgery.
Read all about the great work of Dr Jasamine Coles-Black, Prof Tracie Barber, and A/Prof Jason Chuen in this collaborative project between Austin Health, The University of Melbourne and the University of New South Wales!
Today’s topic is 3d printing in urology, and how 3d printing can help patient education through a simulated urostomy! This low cost, simple device can help patients adjust to life-changing surgery, and demonstrates how quickly an idea can go from concept to prototype using CAD and 3d printing techniques.
Many thanks to our authors Dr Jasamine Coles-Black, Dr Ian Chao, A/Prof Jason Chuen, A/Prof Nathan Lawrentschuck, Mr Dennis Gyomber and Prof Damien Bolton, along with the production team at the Journal of 3d Printing in Medicine!

Thank you to everyone who came to our 2019 3dMed Conference — it was an amazing event and we all had a wonderful time catching up with you all.
We haven’t had time to do a proper write-up but in the meantime you can read all about it here from our friends at Industry Website 3dPrint.com.
OK, we got completely sucked in by this Facebook Ad from The University of Melbourne, but it is for a good cause! The 3dMedLab at Austin headlines this promotion. Make sure you check it out — and if you want to learn more about studying health sciences including medicine at Unimelb then click here!
You know that little tingle that goes down your spine when something goes right? We we are feeling it now, with our most recent paper published in Anaesthesia Reports.
These little critters are making a huge difference to our surgery and anaesthesia teams in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, making sure that their Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPRs) are working properly and keeping them safe under their surgical gowns — let’s hope that it helps others as well.
Our work has been featured on the Austin Health iNews website. Reproduced below for your convenience.
3D printing medical equipment in response to COVID-19
6 July 2020 – Mary Ioannidis
PPE hoods are something that anaesthetists, nurses and surgeons commonly wear to protect themselves when performing procedures that cause patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 to generate potentially infectious aerosols.
