I decided to give my Prusa MK3 printer a real challenge, so I cut my best skull model, I added some slots for neodymium magnets and I started to print the parts. I'm done with the half of them and I'll update my post when I'm done.
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
My recent anatomy projects forced me to start importing my 3d models into 3d pdf documents. So I'll share with you some of my findings.
The positive things about 3d pdf's are:
1. You can import a big sized 3d model and compress it into a small 3d pdf. 40 Mb stl model is converted into 750 Kb pdf.
2. You can run the 3d pdf on every computer with the recent versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Which means literally EVERY computer.
3. You can rotate, pan, zoom in and zoo
Hello This is my first 3D print. I used a 3D model of a kidney, which I made myself from a renal angiography. I printed it with one of my engineer geek friends using a Prusa i3 self-made 3d printer, 0,2 mm nozzle, 0,2mm layer thickness and PLA as material. This was my entering demonstration, which gave me an assignment as a freelancer anatomy assistant professor.
My ambitions are to use 2D and 3D models, along with the traditional cadaver techniques in my work as an anatomy teacher and to te
