  1. Hello,

    I have a few queries and would appreciate some clarifications for them;

    1. I would like to know the comparison of Democratize 3D to Materialize MIMICS software 3D segmentation and STL conversion quality of conversion?
    2. What is the cost of conversion and STL file format charged by Democratize 3d by per case basis?
    3. Does the segmentation done by Democratize highlight the, for example the tumor in a separate color for easy visualization?
    4. Does Democratize also provide Patient Specific Implant design and planning services too?



  2. That must have been one incredibly difficult surgery to replace a section of spine that big!
  3. You can change the unit of measurement in Meshmixer. Make sure it is set to mm and not a different unit (see below)
  4. I'm not sure you can create a 3D image with only 2D data. Without the third dimension, you are missing depth information. If you have numerous images, say 360 degrees around an object, then you can. In fact that is how CT works. But from just one or two 2D plain films, no.
  5. Material is less important than printing method used. I'd use a stereolithography printer. It gives the best detail. This is the same method used for Detailed White Resin for the print service on this site. You can order your print here or do you own.
  6. Typically the default unit for medical scan conversions is in millimeters. If your software is having trouble figuring would what the default unit is, specify it in mm and it should work.
  7. Version 1.0.0


    This two piece hollow heart model is derived from a high quality CT scan. The two halves can be kept separate to illustrate anatomy inside the heart, or they can be fused together to make a single piece realistic hollow heart. The cut plane is along the long axis of the heart, which allows for a perfect four-chamber view of the heart. Right and left ventricles, right and left atrium, SVC, IVC, pulmonary arteries and pulmonary veins are present in the model. I printed this model in Formlabs elastic and fused the two models together to make a single hollow heart model for device testing. Below are some pictures from that project. Other heart models I have made:

    My name is Frank Cayer and I would like permission to use your STL file on the N95 mask holder.  Just purchased a Prusa printer to make items to give back to homeless Veterans and the community.  Have Soft Tissue Sarcoma on my face from Panama.  Fighting the VA and they refuse to help Vietnam Era Veterans with Agent Orange medical issues.  So I decided to focus on something that makes a difference.  Do not make that much money and I figure that the Prusa would make a difference.  At the same time where some of the money would pay for the mask for Veterans and free bus passes during the summer so the homeless can ride busses to get out of the heat.  Depends on how many I sell to give each month because I have to pay for the filament and overhead.  Have a friend that wants to invest in more PURSA printers.  Have a professor at the one of the Florida Universities that teaches 3D printing giving me advise on the printer operations.  If you want to call me you can reach me at 703-496-8652 or frank.cayer@gmail.com

      Frank, thanks for the message. The N95 mask holder is distributed under the Creative commons attribution, non-commercial, no-derivatives license. So, you can use it for noncommercial purposes. If you want to use it for a commercial venture, private message me and we can discuss. 


      All the best,

      Dr. Mike

  9. Looks like a great file. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to feature it.
  10. How was it? I've always wanted to attend but it never seems to work out.
  11. Ooooh, this looks interesting and worth investigating. I'd love to implement a 3D viewer on this site. Thanks Terrie!
  12. 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!
  13. It is just the bones. So structures like the brain are not included. Hope this helps.
