This is Going to Help

SHAPE is a novel method to treat bone fracture by combining novel technologies: 3D printing, computer programming, and computer modelling. CT scans are converted to .stl files using python codes, and the .stl files are used to create fully customised bone plates. The bone plate models are 3D printed to provide the optimal recovery.

 — Automated Patient-Specific Fracture Plate
Image shows the bone model created from the python codes. Fusion 360 was then used to create patient-specific plates, which have numerous medical superiority compared to the conventional plates.
