3D Printing

3D printing at KUMC

The Graphics & illustration center offers 3D printing as one of the core services. Whether one needs to render data into a tangible form, repair difficult-to-obtain parts for scientific equipment, or develop an invention or tool in biomedical research, we have the resources to bring your vision to reality.

Printing out three dimensional models of the prepore and pore structures of the Anthrax toxin pore translocon: 

These models have provided a literal "hands on" approach in my discussions of the conformational changes in protein structure for this important toxin transition.  These models were taken to invited lectures to discuss our research and used as educational props.

The core utilizes a Makerbot Replicator 2X to produce virtually any form or color in ABS plastic.

The core also offers the ability to scan and copy complex objects for the purposes of recreation in the 3D printer.
