Chinese Researchers Use Phone Cameras To Create 3D Printed Anatomical Models

Researchers at Morphologic Science Experimental Center, Central South University, China, worked towards making the use of Phone Cameras and Cloud service-based workflow to image bone specimens and print their three-dimensional (3D) models for anatomical education. Using four typical human bone specimens, the femur, rib, cervical vertebra and skull , photographed by a phone camera, they aligned and converted them into digital images for incorporation into a digital model through the Get3D website and submitted to an online 3D printing platform to obtain the 3D Printed models. The results were excellent and as low as distance deviations ≤2 mm were noted among 99% of the random sampling points that were tested.
