New 3D printable bone models now available for download

Recommended Posts

Dear Members,

 

We have just made a series of high quality bone models available for download in the File Vault. These STL files are all water tight (manifold) and have been manually edited and run through 3D printing optimization software to ensure that they have a minimum wall thickness (1mm) to enable 3D printing.

 

Arm

Left arm, scapula and humerus

Embodi3D members can download these models for free. Thanks to Dr. Bruno Gobbato for submitting the original files. More files will be released as we perform quality checks and corrections.

 

Enjoy!

 

Dr. Mike

Does anyone have any experience printing orthopaedic bone models in FDM machine filaments (PLA, ABS, nylon, etc) esp for surgical instrumentation in a mock lab (surgical simulation) and designed as a functional part that approximates the feel of healthy bone (cortical vs medullary bone)?

If so can you please share your recommendations for optimized Cura settings, such as in-fill percentage and outer shell thickness, for drilling and plating practice? Also did you find a particular filament plastic you liked for this kind of functional model of bones? I'm leaning toward HIPS for ease of PLA with acetone post-processing benefits of ABS. I'm also looking at Taulman nylon.
