  1. Medical 3D printing isn't at a point where a user can buy a printer, plug it in and do a few prints a year. There is a big learning curve a user must go through in order for prints to turn out correctly. This is especially true for medical trial exhibits where certain anatomy or conditions need to be highlighted from a CT scan. This requires 3D printing expertise and medical training.


    Furthermore, you will need space and all the related tools that go with 3D printing. Some printer manufacturers show their printers sitting on an office desk. This really isn't practical because of the noise, heat and messy post print processing.


    We offer a 3D printing service specifically for medical trial exhibits: https://www.embodi3d.com/3d-printing-anatomy-models-for-medical-malpractice-trial-exhibits/



  2. This week we want to share with the embodi3D community the seven most downloaded models from the dental, orthodontic and maxillofacial category.  Uses of 3D printing include the production of drill guides for dental implants, the production of physical models for prosthodontics, orthodontics and surgery, as well as the manufacture of dental, craniomaxillofacial and orthopaedic implants, and the fabrication of copings and frameworks for implant and dental restorations.

    The most downloaded file is an STL model of a woman's mandible. This model was 3D printed by an embodi3D member with excellent results. Be sure to click through and check out this STL file and images of the resulting 3D dental print. The list also includes other great 3D dental models. You might be interested in our list of top 10 human heart STL files or our list of free human anatomy STL files including brain, heart, mandible and spine. We also have a list of the ten most downloaded 3D printable STL files on embodi3d.com.

    Don’t forget to register and download the STL files so you can 3D print the models yourself. Please reply to this post with which model you like best.


    1. An excellent 3D model of a woman's mandible with great detail. 



    2. This model was created from a conebeam CT and segmented on itk-snap.



    3. A highly detailed dental scan shows the bony anatomy of the maxilla, mandible and facial structures in great detail.



    4. 3D model of the mandibula with details of the teeth


    5. A 3d model of the mandible for implant study.



    6. Digital model of the orbit with the frontal bone shown.

    7. A beautiful STL file 3D model of  parasymphyseal and subcondylar mandibular fractures.



    Please reply to this post with which model you like best or if you know of a good file which should be included post it here.

  3. The website has undergone a major upgrade. Member information, forum posts, gallery images, files and other site content was transferred. During the transfer of member information username and display were merged into display name. Therefore, what used to be username is now a member's display name.


    We highly recommend you modify your account settings so you have the display name you prefer. To review and update your display name please follow these steps.


    1. Login to your embodi3d account
    2. Look up toward the upper right of the web page and you will see a downward arrow next to your name. Click here.
    3. Next, click on Account Settings. It's about half way down.
    4. Then you will see several choices under settings. Click Display Name and update this to what you want other members to see.


    The new site has a more modern look with a user friendly design. Members will find the text editor used in blogging, forum posts and writing file descriptions, much easier to use. Images and videos are now easily included and sized correctly.


    Other benefits will be realized as we roll out new services and features. Stayed tuned for future announcements.


    If you have any comments or questions please use the contact us form. It's new and improved too!

  4. At embodi3d.com we are always trying to help members share their enthusiasm for biomedical 3D printing. One of the best ways to share is by uploading files to the marketplace. We have stocked the marketplace full of files ready for 3D printing. However, there is an unlimited number of conditions which can be modeled. We can't think of all the possibilities.


    This is where you come in. Many of our members have contributed files and this helps to enrich the experience for everyone. We want to help more members share. We have learned some members want to share but are uncertain about how to do so and many members have questions.


    Therefore, we want to learn how we can help our members share their work.  Please vote, more than one choice can be selected in the poll.


    Thanks for your help! We look forward to your feedback.

  5. Hi Amir,


    Yes we print many different medical 3D models including vascular models, bone models and organ models. For the most part we use the open source software 3D Slicer, Blender, and Meshmixer when on a PC computer. If we are using a Mac we use the same basic workflow but use Osirix instead of 3D Slicer. We have found Formlabs printers to be a good fit for our needs.

  6. This is actually very amazing, and it is really doable with some practice and mastery of the softwares.

    We have printed numerous models, from crania-maxillofacials to vascular malformations, and also some interesting craniosynostosis cases. It is getting pretty common in the hospital. 

    What software do you use for 3D printing? Is the skull image you posted something you printed? Can you share some details about the print?

  7. Dear Community Members,


    After many months of work, we are happy to announce the addition of a feature that will allow you to sell medical models you have designed on Embodi3D.com. While we always have encouraged our members to consider allowing their medical STL files to be downloaded for free, we understand that when a ton of time is invested in creating a valuable and high-quality model, it is reasonable to ask for something in return. Now Embodi3D members have two options: 1) You can share your medical models for free, or 2) you can charge for them. We hope these two options encourage more sharing and file uploads. The more models available, the more it helps the medical 3D printing community.


    For more details on how to sell your medical masterpieces on Embodi3D, go to the selling page.

    Thanks, and happy 3D printing!

  8. Today we released an updated and more modern look for Embodi3d.com. All of the features are still the same and the way the site works remains the same. :)


    Take a look around and reply with your feedback. If there is anything that we can improve or if you have suggestions please reply.



  9. Embodi3D now offers customized 3D printed artery and vein models for physician education and medical device testing. All models are derived from real patient CT scan data so the anatomy precisely matches that of a real patient for maximum realism. These models are perfect for demonstrating and testing endovascular medical devices, such as wires, catheters, coils, stents and stent-grafts, IVC filters, and thrombectomy devices.
