Silicone blood vessel from 3D printed mold

Toni working under the supervision of C. Salewski printed the lumen of a blood vessel with us. He used CT data to model a realistic aorta. To generate a soft vessel model suitable for practicing the implantation of a cannula (see right), the lumen was printed, and then a silicone cast was made around it before softening and removing the HIPS core.
