  1. How was it? I've always wanted to attend but it never seems to work out.
  2. Ooooh, this looks interesting and worth investigating. I'd love to implement a 3D viewer on this site. Thanks Terrie!
  3. Not sure what settings you used, but you might want to increase the threshold value so that more of the soft tissue is excluded, thus making for a cleaner bone model. The default value is 150 Hounsfield units. Try 250 and see if that helps. Good luck!
  4. It is just the bones. So structures like the brain are not included. Hope this helps.
  5. This is really interesting article about using 3D printed needle guides (see picture) for tumor localization prior to breast conserving surgery in breast cancer, specifically ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The report was published in Nature! The unique angle here is that the guides can be created from MRI, which can show the tumor most accurately. More traditional methods of pre-op localization involve mammography or ultrasound localization. There were only 11 patients in this study, but it is a very interesting application of 3D printing technology to allow MRI to be used to guide surgeries.
  6. Nice post. It great to get kids into 3D printing, but safely. The technology will only get better and they are the future!
  7. Well, one thing you can do is segment and put the finished digital models up for sale on Embodi3D. If you create a good model that is of interest, you can make a good deal of passive income. It helps if you go the extra mile and modify the anatomy to make a better model, like I did with slicing my heart segmentation model below. It is also helpful to add a nice description and pictures/videos. We have everything you need to do this on Embodi3D, including a large library of anonymized scans to start with. Spend a few hours designing a nice model and you can generate passive income for years. Hope this helps.
  8. Interestingly, their medical services were positive in Q3 2020 vs 2019, implying that there is still strong demand on medical 3D printing despite the pandemic and recession.
  9. You need a source for the data. Do you have a CT scan of a rabbit?
  10. Valchanov, the snapmaker sounds like a pretty cool concept. Agree though that 3-in-1 almost sounds too good to be true...
