About This File
An aneurysm of the abdominal aorta in close proximity to horseshoe kidney. Presurgical model. The operation is ongoing.
Honestly, I'm pretty happy with the result (and also the surgical team, which ordered the model). I printed it on Prusa MK3S, the kidney with the veins and the distal parts of the arteries with white Esun PLA, the aorta with red 3dJake Eco PLA, on 0,150mm layer height. The kidney is printed on 30% gyroid infill and 2 perimeters, with support on build plate only plus several support enforcers. The aorta is with 4 perimeters and 100% concentric infill, with support on build plate only and few support blockers. I glued them together with cyanacrylic glue and used a touch of red acrylic paint to make the glued parts more appealing. It took 300 grams of plastic and the printing time was 36 hours because of the kidney.
