3D Prints From Ultrasound Images

Make a life size model of your unborn child with 3D printing.

Jorge Lopes, a PhD student at the Royal College of Art, has found a way to 3D print a life size model of a fetus in the womb. The digital model is produced from a combination of ultrasound images and MRI scans. This technique could allow parents to hold a highly detailed model of their child (or children) within hours of the start of the process.
