Amazing  person in the world to get a 3D printed face created using a SMARTPHONE 

A cancer survivor, age 54, becomes the first person in the world to get a 3D printed face created using a SMARTPHONE

The patient had an invasive tumour that left a hole where his eye, cheek bone and part of his nose had been in 2008

Since then he’s lived with an uncomfortable prosthetic that kept falling off

Most 3D printed prosthetics cost hundreds of thousands of pounds

But researchers used a free smartphone app to make the 3D model

It is fitted by magnet to three titanium screws in the patient’s skull

They hope to train as many people as possible to make the technology accessible in remote areas of the world with minimal health care services
