  1. 1. Richard P. Hulser, Chief Librarian Natural History Museum Los Angeles County University ofToronto Symposium July 25, 2013 Smithsonian Astrophysical Laboratory: www.chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2002/0237/
  2. 2. * *Traditional way – sculpting, modifying and casting *New way – scanning, modifying, printing in less time and higher accuracy
  3. 3. * *Fast turnaround from scan to displayable copy *Scaling – up or down *Example: Archaeopteryx wings Print from 3D scan Test printed object in wind tunnel No harm to specimen yet detailed configuration accuracy
  4. 4. * *Paleoparadoxiid *Molding, Casting *Scanning *3D Printing
  5. 5. * *T-Rex sensory gland in skull
  6. 6. * *28,000 year old bees in La Brea Tarpits *3D CT microscan (borrowed from U. Southern California) *Revealed male and female bees in separate nest cells *Species tolerate specific environment *PLAN: Print bees larger to enable better examination by researchers
  7. 7. * *Small mummy casing *Thought to be a bird *Mummy casing not cut *Scan revealed partial set of cat bones Cat mummy offering
  8. 8. * *Permission to scan and prototype items in private hands ➪Research can’t do other ways *Ownership protection ➪Who owns 3D scan or model created from it? *Authentication verification of 3D scan file critical
  9. 9. * *Software usability – CAD software challenge to learn and use *Makerbot affordable 3D printing leader  Sold to larger company Stratasys so not independent anymore.  Could impact pricing and technological availability or advancements
  10. 10. * *CT Microscan rare and fragile publications *Create digital representation *Print facsimile for closer physical inspection *Example: 16th century monographs too delicate to open for scanning *Brittle 19th & 20th century newspapers *Build on digitisation projects: 1990s scans of General Archives of the Indies Seville Spain (IBM); http://en.www.mcu.es/archivos/MC/AGI/index.html West Semitic Research Project (University of Southern California) http://www.usc.edu/dept/LAS/wsrp/information/
