About Project

The kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs on either side of your spine, below your ribs and behind your belly. Each kidney is about 4 or 5 inches long, roughly the size of a large fist. Blood comes into the kidney, waste gets removed, and salt, water, and minerals are adjusted, if needed. The filtered blood goes back into the body. Waste gets turned into the urine, which collects in the kidney's pelvis — a funnel-shaped structure that drains down a tube called the ureter to the bladder.

A doctor ordered this pair of kidney models and remarked to make them totally transparent. We fulfilled his requirement with PolyJet Clear Resin. It's ideal for making see-through parts and prototypes.


  • Step 1: Add the supporting structure for the kidney models on the computer.
  • Step 2: Input the 3D model into the PolyJet 3D printer. The printer uses an inkjet-like print head to distribute the resin onto the print bed, eliminating the need for the messy, smelly, and hazardous pool of resin used in SLA machines.
  • Step 3: Remove the supporting structure and polish with sandpaper. No more post-cure process is needed.
