The eye of Amal Sofi. Albinism refers to a group of inherited conditions. People with albinism have little or no pigment in their eyes, skin, or hair. They have inherited altered genes that do not make the usual amounts of a pigment called melanin. A common myth is that people with albinism have red eyes. In fact there are different types of albinism and the amount of pigment in the eyes varies. Although some individuals with albinism have reddish or violet eyes, most have blue eyes. Some have hazel or brown eyes. However, all forms of albinism are associated with vision problems.

These fantastically accurate models of a rib cage and set of lungs were printed for the London based artist Dave Farman (@davefarnhamuk) in early July. Initially the 3D model came from a CAT scan which was then scaled down and converted into an STL file before being sent through to us. Printing internal and external body parts from a CAT scan is a great example of the possibilities of rapid prototyping, allowing a cheap and accurate way of creating very bespoke 3D objects.
