Library announces 3D printing contest winners

May 18, 2020
Posted In: AT Still Library News, AT Still Memorial Library

A.T. Still Memorial Library’s 3D printing contest has ended, and we have our winners! Model designs were to be used in healthcare, either for education or in general. Judges graded the proposal and model for innovation, creativity, originality, impact on learning, and ability to meet design learning objectives.

Both of A.T. Still University’s (ATSU) campuses received several entries. The top three winners from each campus were:

Arizona campus
First place: Savannah Burrup, ATSU-Arizona School of Health Sciences (ATSU-ASHS) occupational therapy student
3D key turner

A simple assistive device to facilitate key use for locking/unlocking doors for a stroke patient’s affected hand.

Second place: Aaron Lai, OMS I, and Ezra Yu, OMS I, ATSU-School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (ATSU-SOMA)
Pulmonary Bronchial Tree

A 3D model to fill a need (since the anatomy lab lacks physical models), and dissecting the bronchial tree from the cadavers would be difficult and time-extensive.

Third place: Salaiman Ahmad, OMS II and Jay Crutchfield, MD, FACS, associate professor at ATSU-SOMA
3D Heart sliced in 4

Utilize 3D models of a sliced heart to efficiently learn cardiac ultrasound and cardiac anatomy.

Thank you to our Arizona campus judges for evaluating the proposals and use of 3D models: Crystal Hendron, MEd, learning & disability resources; Kimberly Jones, EdD, director of student life; Cindy Ogren, academic computing analyst; Brittany Williams, MS, instructional designer.

Missouri campus
First place: Alex Ahmann, OMS II and Jay Guyll, OMS II, ATSU-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM)
Hand model

To give a live-action visual demonstration of the complex movements a hand goes through during prehension; the action of grip.

Second place: Aaron Steimel, OMS I; Wyatt Fones, OMS I, ATSU-KCOM; Dr. Caroline VanSickle, PhD, MA, assistant professor of anatomy, ATSU-KCOM
Bony ear anatomy model

To improve dissections (preserve more features that are objectives) and to help students better learn and understand ear anatomy.

Third place: Paul Wehner, D2, ATSU-Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health
Four models of a patient’s mouth

Used as forming models to make clear, plastic orthodontic trays using a thermoforming machine.

Thank you to our judges for evaluating the proposals and use of 3D models: Katherine M. Adler, DHA, FACHE, associate dean of ATSU’s College of Graduate Health Studies; Stephanie McGrew, MA, coordinator of ATSU Office of Diversity and Inclusion; Matthew R. Heeren, JD, vice president & general counsel.
