Cup design allows for cement layer thickness that changes with cup size (1.5 to 3.5 mm thick at radius)
Material: UHMWPE
Material for markers: stainless steel

Grooved outer cup surface ensures its stability within cement layer:
3 horizontal grooves provide axial stability
2 perpendicular vertical grooves provide rotational stability
Collar allows for cement pressurisation and cup centring in the acetabulum, which is reamed to match the collar's diameter
Openings around the collar allow excess cement to be expelled
