-"​Fortunately Dr Voss provided an amazing data set for us to start with. In order to print this at large scale, each of the thousands of strand models would have to be fused to create a single brain model that could then be sliced into printable parts that fit in the build envelope,"​ Direct Dimensions art director Harry Abгamson ​explained. "The whole model would then need engineering and design modifications to ensure that it could be assembled precisely and support itself on its custom mount."​+"​Fortunately Dr Voss provided an amazing data set for us to start with.
