    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

    Medical 3D printing 101

    By valchanov

    Bones   The main advantage of the orthopedical presurgical 3d printed models is the possibility to create an accurate model, which can be used for metal osteosynthesis premodelling - the surgeons can prepare (bend, twist, accommodate) the implants prior the operation. After a sterilisation (autoclaving, UV-light, gamma-ray etc etc), those implants can be used in the planned surgery, which will decrease the overall surgery time (in some cases with more than an hour) with all it's advant

    Medical 3D artist guide - how to sell your work.

    By valchanov

    In the last few decades, the 4th industrial revolution began - a significant advance in the 3D technology and an emerging of a brand new production method - the computer-controlled additive/subtractive manufacturing. It is considered "the new wheel" and it gives the ability to generate a detailed three dimensional object with complicated geometry from various materials (metals, polymers, clay, biological macro molecules) with a robot, controlled by a computer. The size of the object don't really

Exploring Teeth in a 3D Model Reveals More than You Think

Exploring Teeth in a 3D Model Reveals More than You Think

Exploring Teeth in a 3D Model Reveals More than You Think As with all medical fields, dentistry requires highly accurate modeling in order to create prosthetics and supporting oral health devices. While dentists have embraced digital 3D X-rays in completing diagnostic work, alginate-based dental molds are still the norm in the profession. The reason for this is simple: 3D-printed molds still weren't as accurate as 3D-printed models, therefore they were not useful in creating prosthetics, de

TOP TEN THE MOST DOWNLOAD SHOULDER 3D MODEL

TOP TEN THE MOST DOWNLOAD SHOULDER 3D MODEL

The upper extremity is connected to the axial skeleton and thoracic cage by the shoulder girdle. The unique arrangement of the skeletal and soft tissue structures of the shoulder allows for the greatest range of motion of any joint in the human body. For these same reasons, the shoulder joint is the least stable of all joints making it prone to dislocation and instability.   The glenohumearal joint has a greater range of motion than any other joint in the body. The small size of the gl

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

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

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.

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
