Abstract

In principle, the goals of the maxillofacial surgical reconstructions are to establish the jaws continuity, to correct the soft-tissue defects and to obtain the normal osseousalveolar base. Reverse Engineering (RE) and Rapid Prototyping (RP) are of a great interest for craniofacial and maxillofacial surgery. These up-to-date technologies are used for reconstructions in maxillofacial surgery. Computer tomography (CT) imaging is very useful for diagnosis in maxillofacial surgery and can be used for reconstruction, 3D CAD models and operation planning. RE allows obtaining 3D CAD model of a physical part by digitizing the part in order to use that model to reproduce the part by RP. RP technology is a layered technology making possible to produce a real prototype based on a 3D computer model presented in STL format.
