Medical 3D Printing Tips/Tricks

Hello everyone,

I was posting this in hopes to maybe find out some particular settings and tips/tricks people use when printing out anatomical models (skulls,brain etc) as I have been offered an opportunity to print models from CT Scans supplied by some local surgeons wanting models of their patients fractures and what not. I have already printed 3 frontal orbits from scans using the stock profile from Cura (Fine 0.15mm) with supports everywhere as the prints can be very intricate but I had a slight mishap with the very previous print. It seemed that some of the supports had actually fused into some parts of the nasal cavity and this loses the accuracy of the file. My supports seem to be very tough to actually pull from the print so I have been resorting to soaking it in warmish water which seems to be helping a small amount.

I'm using my Mk3S. 0.4mm Nozzle, PrusamentPLA, Standard Fine 0.15mm Cura Profile, Supports Everywhere

If anyone maybe has some profile settings they would/do use for this line of work it would be greatly appreciated! 🙂
