    Biomedical Illustration Services has the ability to create 2D and 3D animations! Animation can be a very helpful tool to teach or explain complex subject matter. Animation can show correct orientation, position, size relationships, and motion over time. If you have a project in mind, contact us to discuss your idea. Keep in mind that animations take a long time to produce, especially 3D animation. Production time for a typical 3D animation may be measured in weeks and months instead of days, so be prepared, and contact us early. Call 984-1215, and we will direct you to the appropriate person!
