About This File

Normally there are two main blood vessels leaving the heart: the aorta, carrying blood to the body, and the pulmonary artery that branches immediately to carry blood to each lung. Instead of having a separate pulmonary artery and aorta, each with its own three-leafed valves, a baby with truncus arteriosus has only one great blood vessel or trunk leaving the heart, which then branches into blood vessels that go to the lungs and the body. This great vessel usually has one large valve which may have between two and five leaflets. Usually this great vessel sits over both the left and right ventricle. The upper portion of the wall between these two chambers is missing, resulting in what is known as a ventricular septal defect (VSD).

 

 

There are 3 separate files as well as a fourth STL file for 3D printing the whole model. The three part model has holes for magnets, which can be used to connect and separate the pieces. All the STL files have been zipped to conserve space.

 

The model is provided for distribution on Embodi3D with the permission of the author, pediatric cardiologist Dr. Matthew Bramlet, MD, and is part of the Congenital Heart Defects library. We thank Dr. Bramlet and all others who are working to help children with congenital heart problems lead normal and happy lives.

      A member recently messaged me with a question about a brain she printed from this file. I as posting the response here in the hope that it will help others in the community. 
       
      QUESTION
      "I came across your 3D printable human brain model and was able to successfully print it. Thank you for sharing it! Now I need to post-process it and am wondering if you can explain how you post-processed your print? I have never done the post-processing before and am not sure the best approach to take. I have attached a picture of our printed brain for your reference. Thank you in advance for insight you can offer!"
       

       
      RESPONSE:
      Based on the picture you attached, it looks like you used a single extruder printer and printed both the supports and model in the same material, presumably PLA. You need to tear off the supports using pliers. This can be a time-consuming job as getting in every nook and cranny can be difficult. If you find the supports are stuck to much to the model, you may have to adjust some of the settings in your slicer software to compensate. There may be a rough surface where the supports touch the model that you can sand off. If you have a dual extrusion printer, you can print the supports using a water soluble material such as PVA, which makes the supports easy to remove by soaking in water. Dual extruders can be finicky and you will likely have to spend a lot of time trying out different settings to get the supports to work just right, including calibrating the XY offset of the second extruder, determining optimal print temperature for the PLA and support to work together, overhang speed, support infill percentage, etc. This process is very time consuming but gratifying once you get your printer dialed in.
       
      If you don't want to deal with the headache, embodi3D has a 3D printing service and can print and ship to you. 

      Hope this helps.

      Currently, Ebola is the most dreaded epidemic in the world which accounts to more than 5,000 lives lost mainly in Africa. As of this writing, the Ebola disease does not have any vaccines available. Those who are inflicted with this virus are treated based on their symptoms. To make matters worse, the scientists all over the world is running a race against a global Ebola pandemic threat that is about to become a reality.
       
      However, the spread of the Ebola virus has also given the opportunity for DIY enthusiasts to find a cure for the virus using DIY biotech experimentation. In fact, fighting Ebola using digital fabrication maybe one of the solutions to the alarming problem.
       
      So how will DIY biotech come into the fore when it comes to treating Ebola virus? One of the experimental treatments show that transfusion of blood from survivors is the best medical practice that can cure victims afflicted with this disease. Since there is a 24-day incubation, the DIY bio movement can help a lot by creating digitally fabricated centrifuges to help with plasma separation.
       
      Toolkits should be built around the centrifuge using digital open source software so that it will be easier for people to sterilize, draw blood and do blood typing. These kits should be able to run on locally available energy sources like solar power and car or motorcycle batteries. With the use of available local energy sources, this technology will be accessible to areas hard hit by Ebola. The more these DIY-fabricated component are available to third world countries in Africa, the more lives will be saved, the higher the chances of containing the virus and prevention of a global Ebola pandemic.

      I'm trying to 3d print my own skull just for fun and well I have the DCOM file but every time when I try and convert it the whole skull doesn't come out. Whenever I convert the DCOM file any of them it only gives me from the top do about the middle of the eye socket and i want the whole thing. Can someone please help me and tell me what i might be doing wrong.
