Semicircular canals physiology
The model presents a simplified diagram of the semicircular canals structure in the inner ear of a human being. It was designed in such a way as to enable the observation of the labyrinth operation principle. After placing small beads (e.g. groats) in the grooves of the printed model students can observe a simulated otolith movement in the semicircular canals.
The model will be especially useful in biology classes.

The model consists of 1 element for printing.
If you want to print more copies of this model, you can use the multiplier in the slicer ("multiply model" function). Use the "+" and "-" buttons to set the desired number of models and the slicer will automatically place them on the worktop.
Model dimensions (XYZ): 95 x 95.07 x 6.14 mm.
Printing time: single - 3 h 20 min.
Recommended filament type: SkriPLA / PLA.

It is necessary to add small balls (in diameter 3 mm) to the model to help show the movement of otoliths in the labyrinth.
