I am beginner in 3D printing. How to set Prusa slicer to get this effect?
best regards

That company would have to elaborate on the process. That's not the result you typically get with consumer-grade FFF printing. Is it possibly a resin printer?

The model linked to as an example in the Facebook post suggests it's FFF 😮

That's pretty cool. There's no settings in the slicer to get that effect through, you just download and print the model. There will probably need to be some fine tuning of speed, retracting, temp, etc. to get it perfect but you should get a decent result with the default settings and go from there.

This looks bonkers if it's FFF ... I can only think of this video for printing transparent, and this video for "hiding" models inside other models. Maybe combination of those two? 🤔

Thank you all for your reply. I printed my heart in a cuboid.
with the proposed settings:
Layer: 0.05mm
Temp. 220
24mm / s speed,
Cooling: no
Retraction: no
Flow 102-107%
The heart model is visible inside (very blurred in the picture)

I will try to use sandpaper to sand the surface.

Yeah I would suggest sanding it with various sandpapers in order to achieve that result just like the video linked above.

I used the settings described in the article:  and I obtained such a print without the use of sandpaper
