Abstract: The review study considers the three-dimensional printing for anatomical simulations and their potential surgical applications. Three-dimensional (3D) printing has entirely transform the current era with its state-of-art usefulness and applications. The functional usability of three-dimensional printed models has been mentioned for orthopaedic, neurosurgery, heart valve surgery, and malignant tissues. Surgical planning of congenital anomalies has also pondered. By 3D printed models, surgical anatomical teaching methods have been explained. The key significance of 3D printed models during treatment of benign and cancerous tumors have been pointed with the conception of bone grinding. In final section, the complications and merits of 3D printed models in surgery have been postulated along with the ethical concerns associated with 3D printed models.
