I'm a brand new user to the site and am so far incredibly impressed by the extent of the content available. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find a model of thorax which demonstrates pectus excavatum. If anyone has a .stl file for this which they have laying around or a CT scan which can be anonymized and converted I would be incredibly grateful. Thanks everyone in advance and happy making!
This is a model of the skull, with most of the foramens on the basis cranii and highly detailed nasal cavity. I made the same dataset also into a soft tissue model. I didn't include the inner ear. It's purpose - surgical training, engineering benchmarks, CFD analysis, that kind of things. I'm selling it for morphological studies and, I'm proud to say, it's quite good the task. I can make a highly realistic model of your skull, heart, pelvis or whatever organ/s you like. but it will cost. If you give me your MRI, I can make the brain too...
Thank you for the suggestion, Angel!
I do want to have it printed from my own DICOM files, rather than someone else's, but perhaps the person who did that has already figured out how to separate the two, and could do the same for me, for a fee.
Do you think that printing from 2 separate DICOM files (one for the cranium, the other for the mandible) would require two different printing jobs, or a significantly higher cost than just printing them as one unit?
I want to have a life-sized human skull printed from DICOM files, and I'm wondering if the mandible can be printed separately, so that I can articulate them. Has anyone heard of this being done? Is it possible to somehow separate the DICOM files of skull and mandible, so they can be separately printed? If so, what are my material options?
BTW -- I recognize that a separate mandible is unlikely to stay in place on the skull, and that's fine; I'm capable of fabricating some method of holding it in place.
Thank you in advance for any thoughts on the topic.
