    Easily Create 3D Printable Muscle and Skin STL Files from Medical CT Scans

    By Dr. Mike

    In this tutorial we will learn how to use the free medical imaging conversion service on embodi3D.com to create detailed anatomic muscle and skin 3D printable models in STL file format from medical CT scans. Muscle models show the detailed musculature by subtracting away the skin and fat. Even when created from a scan of an obese person, the model looks like it comes from a bodybuilder, Figure 1A. Skin models show an exact replica of the skin surface. The finest details are captured, including w

    Selling Your Medical Model Files on Embodi3D.com

    By embodi3d

    Dear Community Members, After many months of work, we are happy to announce the addition of a feature that will allow you to sell medical models you have designed on Embodi3D.com. While we always have encouraged our members to consider allowing their medical STL files to be downloaded for free, we understand that when a ton of time is invested in creating a valuable and high-quality model, it is reasonable to ask for something in return. Now Embodi3D members have two options: 1) You can share

3D Printing Tutorial: Introduction to Free and Open-Source Software, 3D Slicer, MeshMixer, democratiz3D. From the 2018 RSNA Meeting

This tutorial is based on course I taught at the 2018 RSNA meeting in Chicago, Illinois. It is shared here free to the public. In this tutorial, we walk though how to convert a CT scan of the face into a 3D printable file, ready to be sent to a 3D printer. The patient had a gunshot wound to the face. We use only free or open-source software and services for this tutorial.   There are two parts to this tutorial: Part 1: How to use free desktop software to create your model

Project Fancy Skull

Meshlab Ambient Occlusion for Hollowing

Here is another tutorial on hollowing meshes, specifically head meshes to obtain a face shell, but I use this method to hollow out bones as well.   Dr. Mike recently posted a great video tutorial on hollowing a head using Meshmixer: https://www.embodi3d.com/blogs/entry/359-how-to-create-a-hollow-shell-from-a-medical-stl-file-using-meshmixer/.   I tend to go back and forth between Meshmixer and Meshlab for different functions to prep a print, but I like to use Meshlab for holl

Top Orbital and Skull 3D Model STL Files

Top Orbital and Skull 3D Model STL Files on embodi3D® In our day-to-day lives, we rely on vision more than any of the other four senses, so it only makes sense that human anatomy has adapted to include several features which keep our eyes safe: tear ducts, eyelids, and of course the orbital bone. The orbit (also known as the "eye socket") provides a rigid form of support and protection for some of the most sensitive parts of the eye including the central retinal artery, maeula, retina, chor

Intellectual property protection

The protection of the intellectual property of the 3D models can be a serious issue for every 3D modeler. It sucks when your model is posted for selling at a webside without your consent with a juicy price and you're gaining NOTHING from it. Some 3D artists are adding watermarks to their models, which can be easily removed by an amateur with a free surface modelling program (Meshmixer, Meshlab etc.). But there is an easy solution for this injustice - an invisible watermark. On Watermark3D you ca

Review of the Ultimaker 3 Extended 3D Printed for Medical Applications

Review of the Ultimaker 3 Extended 3D Printed for Medical Applications

Here is my video review of the Ultimaker 3 Extended for medical 3D printing. It was 4 months in the making. Medical anatomical models can be challenging to 3D print because of complex anatomy and large size. This 3D printer has a couple of features which help overcome these challenges. Ultimaker 3 Extended specfications and pricing.   First, the Ultimaker 3 is a dual extrusion printer which allows for two different materials to be used during a single print. This video shows 3D print

Dental 3D Printing : Teeth, Implants, Dentures and Crowns

Medical Three-dimensional (3D) printing has a variety of uses and is becoming an integral part of dentistry, oral surgery and dental lab workflows. 3D printing in dentistry is the natural progression from computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology which has been used for years by dental labs to create crowns, veneers, bridges and implants. Now, 3D printing is taking its place with 3D printing solutions for dental, orthodontic, and maxillofacial applications. Se

File Sharing Contest Winner for May 2017

File Sharing Contest Winner for May 2017

We had a file sharing contest in May of 2017, where those members who uploaded and shared a file were entered to win. We had many good entries and it was a tough choice, but we found a winner! Michael Platt is our winner! He submitted and shared two STL downloads; a thoracic vertebra and a renal cortex. We selected the renal cortex because the download contains two STL files: an intact renal cortex and another STL with the cortex sliced in half.     Michael is a medical physi
