I recently had a right knee replacement and wanted to print a set of the bones involved. Here they are!

These are downloaded from the life science 3D database at http://lifesciencedb.jp/bp3d/?lng=en

I only ran them through netfabb studio to clean up some errors and orient them correctly for 3D printing, any and all rights remain with the original source.

These are full size, so you will probably need to scale them for printing. I used 45% to fit the femur diagonally on my Printrbot Plus. They'll need to be printed with support.


Scale to fit your print platform, slice with support.

Many thanks for these files. I've had such incredible fun turning them and other into various catacombs themed dungeon tiles.

It's been a while, but they were probably run through meshlab to reduce the file size. Shapeways has a tutorial if you're interested, at http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/polygon_reduction_with_meshlab.

They're scans of real bones, from the Japanese site linked in the Thing Info, which contains 3D models of virtually everything in a human body. No idea of gender or age, perhaps somebody more versed in anatomy than I can tell. The uploaded version is full size, so unless you've got a pretty big 3D printer you'll need to scale them.

Pretty cool! Looks realistic but has a relatively low poly count. Just curious, but are these based off of real bones? Any idea on the gender and age if so?
