3D4Med joined the II International Conference on Simulation for Additive Manufacturing – Sim-AM 2019 that will take place on 11th – 13th September 2019 in Pavia.

3D4Med anatomical models for surgical planning and simulation has been exposed during the congress.

Prof. F. Auricchio will attend the 106th National Congress SIOeChCF (Società Italiana di Otorinolaringoiatria e Chirurgia Cervico Facciale) that will take place on 29th May – 1st June 2019 in Rimini.

The panel discussion will focus on recent innovations in Otolaryngology, Oncology & Reconstructive Surgery, Maxillo – Facial Surgery and will highlight the advent of new technologies in these fields.

Prof. Auricchio will present 3D4MED Lab and the possible applications of 3D printing technology for the surgical planning, training and simulation in Otolaryngology & Maxillo – Facial Surgery.

The meeting “Stellate Ganglion Block. New Frontiers in the Treatment of Cardiac Arrest with Refractory Ventricular Fibrillation” will take place on January 30th, 2019, at Policlinico San Matteo of Pavia, in collaboration with the Clinical 3D Printing Laboratory 3D4Med.

3D4Med supports the training on this innovative treatment through the manufacturing of 3D printed phantoms, able to reproduce the echogenicity of the tissues of interest.


Free admission, no registration required.



3D4MED Laboratory is equipped with different 3D printing technologies able to create patient-specific anatomical models for surgical planning, training and simulation, and to develop patient-specific instrumentation and innovative prototypes.


The laboratory was born from the collaboration between the group of Computational Mechanics and Advanced Materials, coordinated by Prof. Ferdinando Auricchio, Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture of the University of Pavia, and the Unit of General Surgery II of the Policlinico San Matteo, directed by Prof. Andrea Pietrabissa.


Engineering and medical skills are the two fundamental ingredients that allowed us to study and understand 3D printing potentialities, with the aim of structuring them in an integrated service within the daily clinical-assistance reality of the Policlinico San Matteo — Prof. A. Pietrabissa


Prof. Fabio Rugge, Chancellor of the University of Pavia, and Dr. Fabrizio Sala, Vice-President of Regione Lombardia took part in the Event, together with the General Director of I.R.C.C.S. Policlinico San Matteo of Pavia, Dr. Nunzio Del Sorbo.


“The clinical 3D printing laboratory is an example of how research and innovation can produce an extraordinary result, in tune with the University of Pavia and research centers. Only by focusing on research it is possibile to create development” —Dr. F. Sala


“We strongly believed in 3D printing, it is one of the five research Strategic Areas of our University. ” — Prof. F. Rugge

The event “Industry 4.0, Technology and the Law” is organized by the Department of Law, the Interdepartmental Research Center at the European Center of Law, Science and New Technologies (ECLT) and the Collegio Ghislieri of Pavia, in collaboration with the Center for Health Technologies (CHT) at the University of Pavia.

The School will be focused on the application of digital technology in industry and in the world of enterprise and will highlight the crucial cross-cutting role of the Law in this field. It will take place from Monday 5th to Friday 9th of February 2018 at the University of Pavia.


On 9th of February students will visit the “Protolab”, the 3D printing laboratory of the Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture.
