When Medtronic was looking to update some of their heart valve implants, they came to us for help. They wanted the implants to be more in line with their new branding and asked us to build the 3D models.
Medical device companies need to be careful that they put forward visuals that match the real product. For that reason, these CGI models had to be 100% accurate to the actual implant. Every angle and detail had to be completely photorealistic.
The biggest challenge here was getting the cloth and tissue components right. We’ve worked with medical device companies before, so we knew it would take some serious ingenuity to get it done. So, we assigned the project to one of our brightest problem solvers at FUSE – Phong Tran.
