Why do knees need patellas? This week’s featured 3D print was designed to help answer that question. The print is an anatomically correct model of a functioning knee. The Continuum Tissue Mechanics bioengineering class (BE550) in the School of Engineering used the model to help students visualize the functioning of the patella.
