We have observed the increasing interest of QIMS journal in 3D printed models applied to medicine. We have been working with this technology since 2011 and we have manufactured more than 500 3D printed models for surgical planning and medical applications. We have read the original article by Allan et al. (1) with a considerable interest because the authors are investigating new clinical areas such as biliary disease.
