3D printing to repair facial features

Facial repair is a way to respect the dignity of the deceased and provide consolation to families. Now, 3D printing can make this task better in a shorter time.

It usually takes three hours to print a mask based on the facial features captured through computation. The mask will be used for further repair, for instance, silica gel will be filled in if possible.
