I have looked at your site: https://www.stratasys.com/en/digital-anatomy-creator/
I did not understand the task at all. So please answer my questions:
1 What is the global (end) goal of the project being developed. This brain will be printed out and somewhere internally вставят? Some kind of doll. Or are you just gathering ideas and don't need the brain itself? You already have a great approach to printing anatomical parts directly from an MRI.
2 What functions should this brain perform? No function, just will lie in some kind of demonstration doll. Any simple reactions? Self-diagnosis, if the student creat not there damage. Imitation of conditional bleeding? Any functional reactions?
3 Will it be some kind of layout for medical training?
4 Is the material needed to simulate operations? What is similar from a real person? Only visual demonstrations?
Hope for understanding. You write under of your own experience. But I don't know him. Not ponten context.

Thank you for your message!
The challenge is intended to expose participants to the Digital Anatomy™ Creator capabilities. We chose to focus on the brain to raise awareness for World Brain Day (July 22nd ).
You are invited to create an anatomical model that mimics the brain either visually (ex: focus on vasculature) or functionally (ex: behaves like native tissue in a mechanical test or a procedure simulation of your choosing). CAD files of a brain model are provided as a starting point but uploading your own model will award you more points. The mandatory files are for material structure of the print, the .ADM file that is the output of the DAC SW.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions or require more information.
We look forward to evaluating your submission!

Just a reminder for the submission requests- the challenge main goal is to use Digital Anatomy Creator SW and create .ADM file to submit. .STL files are not mandatory but a good addition.
