So after having worked on this project for a year, I am ready to let you in on what it is exactly.
So here is the tl;dr version:
- Anatomical models can be very expensive and even worse: innacurate
- Real specimins (organs, bones, etc.) can be fragile and in some cases, perishable. Not to mention you can’t always have access to cadavers (if you do and do not work in a medical setting, the NYPD would very much like to speak with you).
- So I thought: “Hey why don’t I 3D print anatomical models that are as accurate as the real thing but durable?” So that is exactly what I am doing.
- Pictures and links to my research are on their way. Stay tuned!
