Creating an exact copy of a dinosaur’s vertebra using a RangeVision Spectrum 3D scanner
Paleontology is the foundation with which you can see how the planet developed and what completely unique animals lived in ancient times. Additive technology allows you to create exact copies of fossil organisms for further study.
This summer scientists found the vertebra of an ancient dinosaur. Tengrisaurus is the first titanosaur in history that lived on the territory of Eurasia. The four-legged and long-necked Tengrisaurus starkovi looked more like it came from South America.
Part of the Tengrisaurus bone was too large and fragile for frequent educational use. In this connection, it was decided to digitize the found fossils and transfer it as an exhibit to the museum.
The scientists scanned the vertebra using a RangeVision Spectrum3D scanner and printed it out in a reduced form, which made it possible to use an exact copy in the educational collection.
