Are there any other ways to 3D print segmented medical data coming from MRI / CT / Ultrasound by splitting it in two halves?
In the first part of this article, the result was that the support structures required by a standard 3D printer significantly reduce the details present on the surface of the printed body part.
Christoph Braun had the idea for another method to reduce the support structures to a minimum: by splitting the object in two halves, each has a flat surface area that can be used as the base for the 3D print.
Importing and Scaling the STL Model
For processing the 3D object, we’ll use OpenSCAD – The Programmers Solid 3D CAD Modeler. It’s a free open source tool, aimed more at developers, with the advantage that the processes can easily be automated.
