Step 1: INVESALIUS

Invesalius acquires the 3d model to Tac and / or MRIs with four simple steps :

1- Import DICOM images

2- Select region of interest ( in this case compact adult bone)

3- Create 3d surface

4- Export image (JPEG) or 3D model ( STL )

Step 2: MESHLAB

We import the 3D model MeshLab to eliminate the parts that we feel superfluous .

Step 3: BLENDER

With Blender we can further refine the 3D model , such as reducing the number of faces and smooth .

I just used SCULPT MODE but you can use modifiers such as SUBDIVISION SURFACE.

Step 4: NETFABB

With Netfabb make sure that the model is without error and proceed to the 3d print ...

Step 5: 3D PRINT

The finished product.
