    The fall caused some drastic damage, but Hu looked hopeful before the surgery.

    The ability to design and print replacement body parts that are customized to an individual's needs is revolutionizing medicine.

    This year alone, doctors have printed tubes that stabilized a child's collapsed windpipe and they've installed the first ever 3D printed vertebra in a 12-year-old boy.

    Now, in a surgery that was one of the first of its kind, doctors replaced part of a Chinese man's skull with 3D printed titanium mesh that was molded to perfectly restore the part of his skull that had been smashed in an accident.

    In October of 2013 the man, a 46-year-old named Hu who lives in a town near Xi'an, was workingon a construction project when he fell. He plunged three stories and smashed his head on a pile of wood. The fall caved in a significant portion of his skull, damaging his brain, causing him to make terrible photshops, and depriving him of most of his ability to write and speak like a normal person.

    :lol:

    How's he going to learn his lesson if you just print him a new skull every time he crushes his old one ?? :facepalm:

    While they're at it, they need to print him up some 3D teeth.

    Well, look at the bright side, when people type in Dent Heads into google image search, you probably come up on page 1.
