Soft Samples

Shore A5 rubber-ike resin (Shore Durometer A:5)


Organs model: Heart / Liver
Model: M3DS-SA5
It is effective in medical education or for planning surgery to use 3D printed internal organ. By using S rank rubber-like resin, the softness could be close to actual organs. Flexible and also high strength.
Glove for artificial hand (Image provided by Prof. Irie, Osaka Sangyo University)
Model: M3DS-SA5
This soft, thin and hollow glove is one of the good samples that MITS M3DS-SA5 can print. S Rank resin provides 200% or more elongation and can be put on the artificial hand.
Hand Model
Model : M3DS-SA5
S Rank Rubber-like Resin enables modeling with softness as human skin, especially as earlobe. For example, hard parts of artificial hand can obtain soft touches by covering them with this resin. It may be effectively used for Soft Robots.

Shore A13 rubber-ike resin (Shore Durometer A:13)

Carotid model
Model: M3DS-SA5
It is effective in medical education or for planning surgery to use 3D printed internal organ. Flexible and also high strength.
Blower
Model: M3DS-SA5
Hollow model like the blower can be printed by M3DS-SA5 without support material filled inside and taken out after print, This blower sample can work like actual one.

Shore A50 rubber-ike resin (Shore Durometer A:50)

Aneurysm Simulation Model (In courtesy of Prof. Sakuma, Kyoto Institute of Technology)
Model: M3DS-SA5
This model is used to test blood flows in blood vessel with aneurysm based on simulation result, and utilized in laboratory in the university. The benefit of stereo lithography is able to create such geometry without seam. Because the material of the model is rubber-like resin, the hardness is close to actual blood vessel, also semi-transparent, flow can be observed by eyes.
Bellows
Model: M3DS-SA5
3D printed air blower and insulator for prototype purposes. Because rubber-like resin is used, not only confirming geometry, but also functionality could be verified.
