From our 3D printed heart to yours we wish you a happy Valentine’s Day. Our heart may look synthetic, but it was produced from a real medical scan.
After a quick resizing (using our intuitive 3D CAD modeling software) we printed it on our Objet Connex500 in TangoPlus FullCure930 – a rubber-like material that is durable and perfect for curious hands. We then died it red in a simple bath.
The detail and precision in the 3D printed heart is truly remarkable. It is in fact a scaled up model of an actual human heart with internal walls and components true to its structure. Medical applications and 3D printing services are on the rise. Medical experts can now practice procedures, view internal components and explore many more medical applications than ever before.
