• Holsim Dog Bones replicate and simulate the makeup of canine skeletal structure, without the need for cadavour bones.


    Holsim Dog Bones are anatomically precise 3D printed dog bones.

    Fore and hind limbs have all major bones, all carpals and tarsals and a representative digit (III). The set includes vertebrae from each region, a sacrum and two ribs. 3D printed bones accurately show  important osteological features of the skeleton enabling students to learn and identify the name, position and function of the features.   


    These are a perfect learning aid for use with Skeledog (URL).


    Limb bones in the Holsim Dog Bones set come pre-drilled in exactly the right places (for threading together) to allow easy demonstration of how the joints fit together and the major ligaments of joints. 


    Bones can be drawn on with water based pens then washed clean in soapy water. They will last and last.


    Anatomically Correct:


    Holsim Dog Bones were 3D scanned from bones prepared from a single real dog, and then 3D printed from renewable bioplastic. 


    Because the original scan data for the bones came from a single dog, all of the bones are in proportion and fit together snugly.


    The dog used for this was euthanised for health reasons.



    Skeledog is a digital dog osteology teaching resource developed by Massey University New Zealand to transform the way students learn about anatomy.


    Skeledog works on its own and in conjunction with the Holsim Dog Bones.
