New technologies such as 3D printing and reverse engineering are becoming increasingly popular, including in medical applications. The paper presents possible ways to use 3D printing in the area of increasing the level of medical training specialists in their daily clinical practice and in the selection of the appropriate scenario before a real surgical operation. Descriptions of the projects carried out with the surgeons aimed at achieving the aforementioned goals were presented. The presented concepts are relatively new solutions, but their further development may lead to the extension of the field of application of these techniques in medicine, among others in relation to other specialties.
Key words: reverse engineering / artificial 3D organs / personalized medicine
