Our services

Model Design & Production

Turn your specimen photographs, medical imaging (CT/μCT/MRI), or idea into a digital or physical model for research, teaching, or outreach.

Research contracting

Accelerate your data collection, publication or grant submission timeline by instantly adding our anatomy and organismal biology experts to your team.

Grant partnerships

Leave fewer grants on the table by co-writing and co-submitting competitive grants with us to the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies.


Tell your science story with graphics prepared by experts in scientific illustration, data visualization, and 3D rendering.

Curriculum development

Transform your students’ educational experience from passive memorization to active, higher order learning using open-source resources and pedagogical best practices.

Science Outreach

Make an impact with your science by working with us to design and implement effective outreach in underserved schools or with the broader public.

Physical models & 3D printing

Enable hands-on learning, get new insights into your research, and add that “Wow!” factor to your outreach with your own physical model.

Image Analysis & Segmentation

Send us your CT/μCT/MRI imaging and we’ll send you morphometric data or segmented digital meshes.

We’re your on-call anatomy experts.

Our 10 steps to creating 3D printed anatomical models

3D printed cat cranium in hand
Physical anatomical models have benefits for teaching and research, from multi-sensory learning to quickly testing physical interactions among parts. In this post, we explain the 10 steps we follow in using 3D printing to create high-resolution models specifically tailored to each client's unique needs.

Our Shop is Open!

We are thrilled that our Shop is officially open! In this April 2022 update we share more about the how and why of opening our online shop, why we tried but ultimately decided against using dropshipping, and how we decided on the most environmentally sustainable materials to use for creating and shipping our products.

The SBIR Gamble

We can’t believe it’s already been five months since we officially registered as 3D Anatomy Studios! In this March 2022 update post, we share what we've been up to for the past few months, including submitting our first NSF SBIR Phase I Proposal! Plus, something exciting to watch for in April!

What do ears have to do with balance?

There's a saying that cats always land on their feet. While not always the case, cats do have a remarkable ability to 'right themselves' midair. But the system that gives cats their sense of balance, the vestibular system, is similar to that in humans and is closely related to hearing. Simon and veterinarian Dr. Tanaka discuss how hearing and balance work and the close relationship between these two systems.

Why don’t humans have bones in their eyes?

Most vertebrates have an ocular skeleton, cartilage and bone embedded in the outer wall, or sclera, of the eye. However, most mammals, including humans do not. Rana and her aunt Iesha discuss how eyes work, the function of the ocular skeleton, and potential reasons why humans don't have one.
