As 3D printing has tremendously gained momentum in various disciplines for many years, it is also becoming more and more promising for medical engineering. Not only to replace body-parts, but also to build anatomical models which can improve the planning of operations. However, previous studies revealed, that the choice of materials has a high impact on the usability of such anatomical models. Therefore, we compare different common 3D-printing materials with the focus on their suitability to simulate osteotomies.
