3D Printed Replacement Skull

NO RATINGS
It is remarkable to me that the material in the 3D printer is biocompatible (it doesn't breakdown or cause reactions with the body) and that it is strong enough to serve as a life long skill. The ability to 'print' a 3D replacement upper skull doesn't strike me as that remarkable (any shape can be made).
