This work summarized a simplified framework that can be used to generate 3D printed prototype from 3D MRI images, with the help of widely available processing tools. The process is conceptually divided into three steps: image acquisition, image post-processing and 3D printing. The utility of the streamlined framework is demonstrated by building 3D prototype of Liver, Spleen and Kidneys using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology based 3D printers. The simplified approach has been suggested to assist users in creating 3D anatomical model from medical imaging data using relevant open source tools.
