Abstract: Current 3D reconstruction modalities are limited primarily to display on a two-dimensional surface. In contrast, a 3D printed model allows both the surgeon and the parents to develop a better understanding of the anatomy and the surgical procedure through the ability to interact directly with the printed model. The production of a 3D printed haptic model of cleft lip and palate can be obtained from a surface-rendered oropalatal sonographic view. The development of this 3D printed haptic model will allow the surgical team to perform preoperative planning with a highly accurate medical model, and it therefore represents a new tool in the management of cleft lip/palate. The fabrication and testing of novel 3D-printed bioactive constructs serves as a prototype for development of patient specific apparatus for alveolar cleft surgery. 3D printing can offer the promising potential of patient specific treatment for cleft alveolar palate .3D printing of customized implants for cleft lip, palate and orofacial deformities and defects involves three milestones . year one: Printing of basic construct using polycaprolactone (PCL), polylactic acid (PLA) and halloysite nanotubes (HNTs). year two: 3D printing a patient specific construct using PCL, PLA and HNTs and . year three: In vitro biocompatibility analysis of the 3D printed construct using mesenchymal stem cells. There are four major types of three-dimensional printers: laser or electron beam sintering or melting(e.g., selective laser sintering, selective laser melting),photo–cross-linking(e.g.,stereolithography or Digital light processing), melt extrusion (e.g.,fused deposition modeling), binder deposition (e.g., inkjet or nozzle-based devices), and cell printing (e.g., cell-containing hydrogel deposition, sometimes referred to as bioprinting). The improvements in the quality and resolution of radiographic imaging combined with the advent of multicolour multiproperty printer technology will make it feasible in the near future to print 3D replicas in materials that mimic the mechanical properties and color of live human tissue making them potentially suitable for surgical
training.
