This is a logicly working model of a human hip replacement.
An example for the idea of using repraps in medical applications.

Try to avoid the Femoral artery when installing replacement. It is recommended to take one or two aspirin before hand to ensure a smooth setup process. Jig Saw, Knife and Staple Gun are purely for installation and not for thingi assembly.

This is a 5 peice thingi.
All STL's included below.
