I'm new to this so I'm not sure if it can be done.

I'm looking for a 3D model of a brain at roughly 24" in diameter, hollow and in L/R hemispheres.
The material should be transparent or at least semi transparent as we will be installing
automated LED lights inside. This is for an educational/interactive piece about brain function.

For now I just need a rough quote for the file and finished piece.

Yes, it "can" be done.. the problem is going to be the price at that size. What you would likely need to do is design it as several "plates" that fit together, because it's right at the edge of the biggest volume that can be printed as a single item.

Sorry to say this, but that's going to be very expensive.. $3000 or more.

At 6 inches in diameter, it'd still cost $66
