This week we would like to share the most downloaded 3D models and resources from our site. These may be good resources for educational purposes as they demonstrate the detailed anatomy of the human body. We have a list of the top human heart STL files and another list of free human anatomy STL files.
The 1st place is for Dr. Mike’s tutorial on how to create 3D printable bone models. 3D printing is an evolving technology that enables the creation of unique organic and inorganic struc
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
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
