3D Modeling of CT Scans for 3D Printing | Dustin Headley

Dustin Headley will introduce participants to methods and practices to convert medical CT (computed tomography) scans into editable 3D mesh geometries and refine them into 3D printable geometries.

Digital design development will be executed in Rhinoceros 3D, showing how to clean, trim, heal and close the mesh for 3D printing. Headley also will also provide an introduction to relevant 3D printing technologies, how to work with tolerances within specific prototyping machines and how to repair/setup geometry for 3D printing. 

Results will be ready for deployment on 3D printing equipment for participants to take back to work, or for deployment via online resources.
