3D Deer Head
MNPRO has created prototype 3D printed models of a deer head. These novel tools can be utilized to demonstrate the removal of lymph node and brainstem samples for chronic wasting disease (CWD) testing. This model is highly useful to help educate hunters, cervid farmers, students, and professionals who may need to sample target tissues for CWD testing.
Two versions and two sizes of the 3D printed deer head model are available. Please visit the shop for more information.
STL files of the 3D models are available through the UMN Office of Technology and Commercialization.
Note: These files were designed for use with highly specialized printers, such as Stratasys J750 or J850 Polyjet 3D. For best results these, or similar, printers are recommended.
Version 1 - Single piece 3D model with accessible and removable medial retropharyngeal lymph nodes.
Version 2 - Two piece 3D model with accessible and removable medial retropharyngeal lymph nodes and brainstem.
