3D printed lacquered heart
Heart model grown as clear SLA
THREE LIFE SIZE MODEL HEARTS
We used a stock CAD file of the heart and sectioned the CAD file to show three different valve replacements positions. We grew the parts on the SLA viper as high definition prints to give the best surface finish.
We experimented with polishing the exterior of the heart and lacquering the inside of chambers that were impossible to polish but the best effect was achieved by sand blasting the outside surfaces so that the hearts could be made to glow red by shining a red spotlight on them.
