      Hi guys please take a look at some examples of are in house zcorp colour 3D printer.

      comments appreciated:

      These frist 3 examples show ct scan data models, you can see the bone marrow data inside, shown on image 2.

      These two examples show a smoke detector project that we designed to light up and show home users where the nearest exsits are in the home. All internals are 3D printed, ie the battery isnt real.

      These two images show a small scale model of Sitevice a pipe clamping device that is designed to be used on construction sites.

      really great. I particularly like the bones. Where can you get 3d data for that? How much does this kind of protoype machine cost? Are they expensive to run?

      Hi there, please take a look at http://www.zcorpprinters.co.uk/ for the price of the machines.

      Model cost varies from £250 - £2000 for a full build chamber.

      The data for producing the bone parts came from a specialist medical field, taken from a CT scan.

      Glad you like the work.

      Thanks for posting! We also have Z Corp 3d printers in house... in America. The enclosure came out quite well. Was this a Z510, Z450, or Z650? Did you use the traditional superglue method? Just wondering because for the most part it looks evenly saturated. Maybe there was a 2nd coat of epoxy?

      Very nice. Was the hip done in a single section or multiple parts glued together?
      I may have to request the data from my next CT scan and get started building a miniature skeleton of myself. ;)

      I really like the detail in the smaller prototype parts.

      I imagine that by now there are companies with multiple 3D printers, ready to knock out small prototypes similar to the age-old paper copying centers (like Kinko's in the states).

      Do any of you use one of these services, and which do you recommend?

      Hey Tiger,

      We have a 3d printer here in house as well, we use it quite often for our anatomical side of the business. www.gpianatomicals.com .

      We can not only do it from a ct scan but we can 3d scan your body if you like ;) lol

      Have a great week!

      Tim
