Astrophysics Combined With 3D Printing Yields Ultimate 3D Print Models

UK researchers, I. Brewis and J.A. McLaughlin, at Northumbria University unveiled their new research that combines astrophysics with 3D Imaging and Printing in cardiovascular health care. Using the astrophysics in creating new image-processing techniques for viewing the human heart, transferring the data to an .stl file and then 3D printing a medical model, they finally produced a precise 3D model of a patient’s heart with Aortic Aneurysm using Netfabb and SLA 3D Printer.
