Threeding.com and Artec 3D Add Animal Anatomy Models to 3D Printing Marketplace

The two technology companies partner again to facilitate access to vital science and education tools

Threeding.com, a leading platform for 3D printing models, and Artec 3D, a developer and manufacturer of professional 3D hardware and software, today announce their latest joint project. The companies are cooperating once again to create an amazing compilation of animal anatomy 3D models. The first 40 models are already available in 3D printer-friendly format at Threeding.com. The collection includes various animal skeletons, bear and duck skulls, a vertebrate mammal and many others.


This is one of the first projects combining 3D printing, 3D scanning and animal anatomy. It aims to help veterinary students, as well as biological scientists, gain physical access to different anatomical models of animals. The project is a result of feedback from many biological scientists who feel obtaining access to these vital tools, which are used for scientific and educational exercises, is far too difficult and expensive.

The complete collection of models will be made available for free on Threeding’s website to all users throughout the month of June. Afterward, free access will be granted to students, universities and scientific organizations upon request.

“We are very excited about this project and our extensive work in the fields of science and education,” said Cveta Partaleva, co-founder of Threeding.com. “It is fantastic that our numerous collaborations with Artec are not only helping our platform to become a leading repository for 3D printable models but also that we are changing the way people are studying and working in science.”

untitled.153“We’re very proud to be Threeding’s scanning partner of choice and to work with the company on this important project,” said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D. “Easy and affordable access to accurate 3D models is vital to the education and development of professionals in numerous scientific disciplines. By using our 3D scanners, Threeding is able to create a diverse range of 3D-printable models that are readily available for download online, offering a game-changing approach to the learning experience.”

This endeavor follows other successful educational, scientific and historical preservation projects performed by Threeding.com in collaboration with Artec 3D. Currently, Threeding.com is working on several other educational and scientific projects in the fields of paleontology, anatomy and archeology that will soon be made public.
