A Fetus

Designer: Fasotec

Produced by: Hiroo Ladies Clinic

In a service that began on July 30, 2012, design firm Fasotec, in association with Hiroo Ladies Clinic of Japan, used 3D printing to produce models showing the inside of the abdomen during pregnancy. The campaign, which they call "Shape of an Angel," could be a revolutionary tool as an alternative to ultrasound. The 3D model gives expectant mothers a chance to see what their baby looks like inside their body, and serves as a reminder of what it felt like to be pregnant. The standard price is 100,000 yen, but the company is working on different models and prices.
