A tumor may be modeled in spherical coordinates by rho=1+1/5 sin(mTheta)sin(nPhi). This model shows the case where m=8 and n=7.

This model was designed by my WLU summer research student Ryan McDonnell ('17). Dave Pfaff helped him work out how to color the model in meshlab. (The pictures show the powder print before and after super-glue is added to strengthen the model.)


This model was printed on a ProJet 260 powder printer.

The .stl file is just of the shape. We will add the print file (with color) soon.
