Project Summary

The use of cadavers in large anatomy classes is prohibitive. This project seeks to generate 3D images and CNC-milled foam models from 3D scans of cadavers from the medical school anatomy class for use in Human Kinetics anatomy classes and laboratories. Medical students generated dissections of cadavers, which were then be scanned using handheld 3D scanners. Engineering/Human Kinetics students have generated 3D images from this process and created a custom catalogue that is accessible by all UBC students & faculty. In addition, CNC-milled models will be used in laboratory settings within Human Kinetics classes. This will allow students to access detailed, anatomically correct models for study. Finally, students have the ability to “3D print” these models for use in individual study. The goal of this project is to provide individual and novel study opportunities for understanding human anatomy.
