Dem Bones

Postby Mooselake » 2013-Sep-Sat-15-Sep

With my recent interest in all things knee related I downloaded the knee-connected bones off the wonderful life science library in Japan. It's slow, but well worth the wait. Uploaded to TV.

My prints don't do it justice, needed to put the support closer together.

I hope you take those prints in with you next time you see an orthopaedic specialist. The look on his/her face would be priceless to see when you pull them out and ask them to show you what's really going on in your leg. hah

I did, actually. His staff liked them, he glanced at them and asked if I had any more questions about my upcoming procedure. He's got a whole shelf of models, sample implants, and other toys to play with while waiting in the exam room, all professionally made. One of my home PTAs is fascinated with my Printrbot; I gave her my full size printed kneecap.

The surgeon said his part was perfect, it was my healing and scar tissue that wasn't right.

I'd like to try printing the cartilage and tendons that go with them, maybe a good place to try some of that stretchy/flexible stuff.

@EvaMMF: it's really, really slow. I still haven't figured out how to combine multiple parts and download them together, but one at a time works. The bones I downloaded were a bit small for full-size, so I think their scans are of relatively short people.

It's a fun site to poke through, if you've got something else to fill the wait time. Halloween's coming up, somebody needs to print a full skeleton.
