Karen approaches us to work on a 3D printed anatomy project
When Karen Kirkness discovered plastic models weren’t allowing her to teach effectively, she sought our help to find a solution.
We 3D print the first object – a diaphragm
Our first 3D print of the project was a diaphragm. Who knew that all of this could fit inside one of us?!
Welcome Yogaflex – we manufacture a brand new filament
Soon after the 3D printing anatomy project began we discovered our need for a more flexible filament – so we manufactured one!
Welcome Vanish filament – the second material borne out of the project
With Yogaflex manufactured to create robust yet pliant 3D prints, we needed a new support material too.
We 3D print: a rotary cuff, clavicles, human bones and a pelvis
Now that we have two brand new filaments fitting Karen’s requirements for flexibility, we are ready to 3D print some parts!
