Project Description

Better 3D Lab worked with a local vet hospital to capture X-ray scanned slices of a full porpoise skeleton (porpoise is a small toothed whale very closely related to oceanic dolphins). We then created 3D images of every single bone from the CT results, followed by serious digital anatomy work to put them together. Finally, using our full-colour 3D printer, we created two miniature skeletons of this Taiwanese native sea mammal.

This is a project for the Formosa Cetus Research & Conservation Group to be exhibited in an international conservation conference in 2011.
