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.

Journal article describing the BodyParts3D project:
My post describing methods to isolate anatomical features and get them ready to print:
- I haven't printed this yet, but the overhang of the inferior articular process looks a bit nasty. Support may be required.
- Print both pieces
- Make more body parts, and tag them with "bodyparts3d"! (see links above)
