  1. Innov3D has listed embodi3D as one of their best website for downloading 3D printable models. Of course, it is the only model sharing website that focuses on medical models in particular. If you don't know about Innov3D, it is a website that focuses on news and information related to 3D printing. They have product reviews, tutorials, and a variety of cool projects to become engaged in. Check it out! And a big shout-out to Innov3D for listing embodi3D as one of their top 3D printable model sites. Dr. Mike
  2. Are you working on a cool 3D printing project? If so, let us know and we might feature you and your work in our newsletter. Send a message to me and let me know about what you are doing.
  3. Check out some of valchanov's work. It might be useful to you.

    This is a fusiform abdominal aortic aneurysm extracted from a medical CT scan. It is a perfect model for medical device testing, hydrodynamic testing, finite element analysis (FEA). The aneurysm is maximally 5.58 cm is diameter. This model represents the blood pool (lumen) of the aneurysm, and includes the following structures: abdominal aorta abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) superior mesenteric artery (SMA) right and left renal arteries right and left common iliac arteries right and left internal and external iliac arteries right and left common femoral arteries right and left superficial femoral arteries (proximal) right and left profunda femoris arteries (proximal) Vascular Parameters: Aneurysm dimensions: Length: 6.96 cm Anterior Posterior: 4.9 cm Transverse (left-right): 5.58cm Infrarenal aorta: Transverse: 1.92 cm Anterior Posterior: 1.75 cm Infrarenal landing area (distance from renal arteries to aneurysm): 3.85 cm Right Common Iliac Artery (CIA): 1.35 cm Left Common Iliac Artery (CIA): 1.11 cm 3D printing parameters: Vertices: 113,948 Faces: 227,892 Object is manifold


  5. A member recently asked me this. I am posting my reply in the hopes it will help others. Question: "any advice on choosing a medical CT scan ? best practice for choosing CT for CMF and cardiac cases? that I can give to our radiologist?" Answer: I wrote a blog article that explains all the details on how to select a great scan for 3D printing (link below). For heart cases in particular, try to find a CT scan with ECG gating. This will reduce motion artifact of the heart. Good luck! Dr. Mike
  6. Hello Dr Mike


    I downloaded your  Colon from CT scan to print for a doctor friend of mine.  I have a question.


    Ae these 2 separate prints or should they be glued together? I cleaning off the support material of the first one and #2 is printing now.


    Thank you

  7. This is an interesting website that has a lot of 3D printing related information, including a very nice comparison tool for 3D printers (link below). It also has reviews, guides, and a "best of" series of articles that will be of interest to anyone engaged in 3D printing. The information is very current. Check it out. https://www.aniwaa.com/comparison/3d-printers/ https://www.aniwaa.com/best-of/3d-printers/
  8. Wow. Great tip. I'm definitely going to try it. Thanks!
  9. Here is an article on the benefits of using 3D printed temporal bones for surgical training https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6703115/
  10. This is outstanding. Thank you very much for sharing. Dr. Mike
  11. I agree. Even with polyjet, there is the issue of wall thickness. The leaflets are very thin and thus hard to print with any printing technology. With great difficulty I designed an 3D printed a customized sheep heart for flow testing of TAVR devices using elastic material.
  12. valchanov, is shrinking a factor with STL prints or just with FDM prints?
  13. Valchanov, I downloaded the file and took a look. I see right ventricular hypertrophy, a large VSD, pulmonary valve atresia/stenosis and an overriding aorta that is also on the right side. I think this is Tetrology of Fallot. It is a cool scan! Dr. Mike
  14. Dear Dr. Mike,

    What kind of software did you use to create Lace Skull structure?

    Thank you!

  15. Is it a thin slice series? 791 seems very large, even for thin slices.
