3D printing is a growing technology that is rapidly becoming more valuable

to the field of orthopedics, but there are some areas that have not been fully explored, such as in the

field of orthopedic implants. In this study, we examined the feasibility of using desktop 3D printers to

replicate surgical implant designs using biocompatible materials. The 3D-printed implants were printed

successfully and at a low cost, but they did not have mechanical properties similar to the industry-standard

stainless-steel implants.
