Left and right ears, derived from the excellent BodyParts3D database. Used Netfabb's Van Gogh algorithm to slice these off cleanly, so they should be easy to print.

Journal article describing the BodyParts3D project:


My post describing methods to isolate anatomical features and get them ready to print:



  1. Print.
  2. Enjoy
  3. Share
  4. Make more body parts, and tag them with "bodyparts3d"! (see links above)
  5. Repeat

For the one pictured here, I used Cura to slice at 0.1mm layer height, and printed with PLA at 190C on at 60C heated build platform. Temperature was too low, and there was some slipping, so the quality isn't perfect.
