Please pay attention to and follow all the instructions closely to ensure the bone models are printed properly and display the required visual, tactile, and acoustic fidelity for orthopedic surgical simulation training. 
  1. Review the custom print settings checklist to verify that each print file was properly prepared and click on the checkboxes to check the most appropriate response.
  2. Print the custom print settings checklist below for the 3D printed sample models by clicking on the "Download PDF" button in the upper righthand corner of this screen and selecting "Layout: Portrait" option for printing.
  3. Write the date of inspection and print and sign your name at the bottom of the checklist.
  4. File and save a back-up copy of the completed and signed checklist for your production and inspection records.
