EFFE Animation’s 3D Models of Medical Equipment

Project Overview:

  • Objective: Create a library of 3D models of medical equipment
  • Services: 3D modeling, texturing, rendering
  • Industry: Healthcare, medical devices
  • Target Audience: Healthcare organizations, medical equipment companies, VR/AR developers


Project Description:

Our team of 3D artists crafted a comprehensive library of medical equipment 3D models to enable realistic digital represreentations of hospital environments. Using reference photos and real-world measurements, we carefully modeled assets like hospital beds, IV poles, wheelchairs, monitors, and more. Our3D 3D models of medical equipment capture the smallest details down to screws, fabrics, hydraulics, and warning labels. We applied photorealistic textures and optimized the models for real-time rendering. Our attention to accuracy provides value to medical device manufacturers and healthcare organizations seeking digital twins of their equipment and facilities. These 3D models of medical equipment save clients time and money while meeting the highest standards for realism and precision.

Project Plan:

Our 3D modeling team researched reference imagery and specifications for the target medical devices to model. We began by blocking out rough proportional shapes for each model before refining the geometry with finer details, moving parts, and appropriate technical elements. High quality PBR textures were created and applied to achieve photorealistic materials like metal, plastic, fabric, and glass on each model. The models were rendered in a 3D engine under consistent lighting to achieve a unified visual presentation across the asset library. The models were then exported in optimized file formats suitable for integration into real-time experiences and workflows. Rigorous quality control checks were conducted throughout the process to validate medical accuracy and realism in the models. The project plan ensured delivery of 3D models of medical equipment meeting technical guidelines, creative direction and photorealism standards on schedule.

3D Models of Medical Equipment

Here’s how we create 3D models:

Research and References: Begin by imagining a person whose traits, activities, and spirit align with the needs and desires of the client and target audience.

2D Sketching: We develop precise 2D designs to determine anatomical forms and space layouts for 3D modelling.

3D drawing: We create 3D polygon organ meshes that accurately reflect real-life anatomical proportions and structural relationships from approved 2D concept sketches.

Modeling: Our polygon meshes accurately replicate real-life organ shapes and spatial arrangements between structures. This reproduced anatomy gives instructional background.

Texturing: We use multi-layered paint textures to generate realistic surface qualities such as skin, tissues, fluids, and defects. The textures significantly improve realism.

Rigging and Animation: We leverage real-world physiology to create interactive articulations and animations that imitate processes like blood circulation.

Rendering and Compositing: We create photorealistic renderings of organ models from multiple angles with varying lighting and compose them into rich virtual scenes such as operating theatres, animated surgical visuals, and immersive environments for medical education.


Measuring Success:

We measure the success of our 3D Models of Medical Equipment deliverables through several key indicators. Quantitative metrics include hitting project timelines and budget targets. More importantly, we look at qualitative feedback on the visual quality, realism, accuracy, and functionality of the 3D models from clients. Overall, our goal is to craft 3D assets that enable our clients to enhance the realism and immersion of their digital healthcare projects.


Source File Assurance:

We securely store all Maya files, texture maps, and source project data for 5 years, making it easy to provide clients with needed assets for updates or additional use cases. Contact us at…
