Download 3D Print Files

Please pay attention to and follow all the instructions closely to ensure the bone models are printed properly and display the required visual, tactile, and acoustic fidelity for orthopedic surgical simulation training. 

Look up your printer model below, download the printer-specific, ready-to-use .GCODE files for printing Adult Male Tibial Bone Models #1 and #2, and go to Step 5 - 3D Print Sample Models.

You cannot print .GCODE files that are not prepared for your 3D printer. If your 3D printer is not listed on this page, please go to Step 3 - Prepare 3D Print Files to follow the instructions to download the .STL files, use Ultimaker Cura or Cura Lulzbot Edition to input the custom print settings and create .GCODE files for your 3D printer.
