About This File

This is my best selling model for 2019. Download, print, assemble, enjoy. Merry Christmas :)
Originally modded as an engagement ring box, it became really popular birthday gift for the colleague from heart-related departments. I'm selling one of those models for 35$ I'm always bringing few, when I'm going on conference. Really nice gift.
I'm printing those with Silk PLA. The metalic colors looks fantastic. I'm using several support blockers for the atrii, because this negates the artefacts and makes the whole upper part hollow. It requires some experience...
Slice thickness: 0,15mm
Infill: 30% gyroid

Circular bottom fill pattern.
Six neodymium magnets, 8x2mm. If you use too powerful magnets, the parts are closing so strong, that they can hurt someone. N50 are fine.
cyanacrilic glue.
Make sure you're gluing the magnets with the right poles!

Great Job !

I tried to do a model like this but in four chamber cut and didn't succeed with cardiac CT scan, it's to hard to have a good segmentation to empty heath cavities.

Could you do the same heart but in four chamber cut?


Response from the author:

Actually, this is a remix of the Dr. Marco Vettorello's 3D model, called Anatomical heart, which is uploaded everywhere. I repaired the mesh, made the cuts and added the sockets for the magnets. I made it as a wedding ring box and it was quite successful. I seriously doubt that it's possible to make such model from an angio CT. Maybe if the Radiologist is a genius, the scanner - 360+ detector scanner, the study - ECG gated and the dose - potentially letal it can be made, but I don't have such datasets. :)
