Using light to describe the ancient world

3D printed moa bone

A 3D printed moa bone held next to a screen shot of the 3D digital version. The 3D moa bone can be viewed at http://www.nzfauna.ac.nz. The moa bone was 3D printed by Tim Carr, Chief Ninja of Mind Kits (twitter: @mindkits). The moa bone was made available for scanning by Neville Hudson at the University of Auckland Geological Collections.

Nzfauna.ac.nz is a digital gallery that allows you to explore some of New Zealand’s fauna through 3D models, wildlife images and audio. I add content to both nzfauna.ac.nz and illuminatingfossils (although nzfauna.ac.nz has been receiving a little more attention lately…).
