This is a model of a heart exploding, it is not 100% anatomically correct but the heart section (without the exploded hole) closely resembles an actual human heart. It was designed to dramatise the effect of a heart attack in a physical object (obviously the heart doesn’t explode in a heart attack). It can be an interesting discussion piece or you could use it as a decoration for upcoming Halloween.

Print Time:

Model originally printed on: Makerbot Replicator 2X

Recommended print settings:

This model was printed in ABS with 2 layers and 20% infill to give the model a more solid fill but 10% infill or less would be fine. The print takes approximately 15 hours as a dual colour print and will then require support removal (the veins and arteries are quite solid so it is not too delicate).
