  1. Whoa! The retractable purging mechanism almost looks too good to be true. In the video did they combine this with a Palette 2? I guess you have to use their slicer software because the nozzle can't move when purging, right?
  2. You can find everything you need to do the conversion manually on the tutorials page. Hope this helps.
  3. A user asked me the following question. I am posting the response to help others who may have the same question. "I went through the tutorial video, I just wanted to know whether the following software is compatible with 3d printers from ultimaker which utilise fdm application. Also please let me know which all 3d printers is it compatible with. " Answer: Yes, the output STL files should be compatible with all FDM printers. Bear in mind that some models are very large and may not fit within the build volume of a specific printer. These models can be scaled down or printed in parts and joined after printing. Hope this helps. Dr. Mike
  4. A user recently asked me this question. I am posting the response here so others can benefit from the answer: "However, I have a question: Please note that the images do not show the hyoid bone (this horse-shoe shaped bone should be visible just under the jaw/withing the jaw bone) and no parts of thyroid catrilage are visible either. Would you be able to let me know if it is possible to show those.please." Answer: democratiz3D will remove small bones automatically from models. This prevents small calcifications, particularly vascular calcifications, from being erroneously included in the model. If a desired structure is being accidentally removed, you can increase the model quality (High/Ultra) or decrease the threshold level and the missing part will be more likely to be included. It may take some trial and error to achieve the perfect result. Hope this helps, Dr. Mike
  5. A user recently asked how it will be possible to 3D print a model generated on the democratiz3D cloud service if the output model is too big to order printed. Embodi3D has a 3D printing service, but typically we cannot print models that are greater than about 40 cm in maximum dimension. There are a few options. 1. Print the model at half-size. You can order your model printed at half-size, and we will scale down your part so that it will fit within the maximum print volume of our printers. 2. Crop the input scan prior to processing with democratiz3D. In this option you reduce the volume of the input scan, so the output model file will be cropped. By cropping around only the desired anatomy you can exclude unwanted structures and reduce the volume of your model so that it can be printed. Here is a tutorial on how to do this. 3. Crop the model after it is been processed with democratiz3D. If you have a completed model but it is still too big to print, you can download the model and scale, cut, or otherwise edit it utilizing mesh editing software such as Meshmixer or Blender. If you have your own printer you can then print the file directly. If you want to use the embodi3D 3D print service, you will have to re-upload the modified file. Click the Analyze Model link (see picture) and your newly uploaded model will be analyzed for print ability. Once this process is complete you will be able to get a 3D printing price quote and order your 3D printed model.
  6. It may be helpful to crop out the air around the body in the scan. This is dead space but still takes of file space. You can often reduce the file size quite a bit by cropping this out. Zipping the file will reduce the size, but right now democratiz3D cannot accept that file type. Hope this helps.
  7. Unfortunately a x-ray is a 2D image and you cannot create a 3D model from it. A CT scan or MRI is a three-dimensional study, and these can be converted to a 3D printable model. If you want to use the democratiz3D application a CT scan is required. If you wish to do the conversion manually, such as using 3D Slicer, an MRI can be used. We have many tutorials on just how to do this. Hope this helps.
  8. how do i get that green     button on each should    i redo  each model again  ????????    and can i delete un printable ones off my page send me screenshots that helped me  alot

  9. Thanks for the question Mike. If your model is in the system, it is automatically analyzed for printability, including a size check. If it is printable, you should see a button "3D print this file" next to the download button, as shown in the picture below. If the mode is too small (less than 3 cm) or too large (greater than 40 cm), or has other technical constraints, it may not be printable and the print button will not show. If you have a question about a specific model that is now showing a button, please contact embodi3D via the contact form and someone will be back to you. Hope this helps Dr. Mike
  10. Can't remember exactly. 2-3 kg I think.
