3D Printed Toddler?!

Working at a 3D printing facility can be very entertaining. The employees at Objet get to live and work with the models they create like this fully-sized, precisely-scaled human toddler (minus legs) – complete with visible internal bone structure! This anatomical model gives us a glimpse into the future of 3D printing in the medical industry. Surgeons in training can use these models to hone their skills before operating on actual patients, crime scene investigators can recreate how a victim’s blood splatter pattern was created, car companies can see how high speed collisions affect  bone and internal organs; the possibilities are amazing (and fun)!!
