Description

Lumbar vertebrae, derived from the excellent BodyParts3D database. Includes L1, L2, L3, L4, and L5. Sliced in half along the mid-plane so they can be printed easily and glued together.

I have tried printing this several times but it keeps catching on the overhang about midway causing it to skip steps. Any suggestions on print settings?

Gracias, muy bueno!!

Hi! I would like to print your piece! :D Do you have a 3D printer?? or do you know who can lend me the service? If anybody can print it and send me it, I would be pleased to pay.

Wish these were functional.  I could use a new set.
