Oxytropidoceras posted a topic in Fossil NewsDinosaur Enthusiasts Can Now Make 3D Prints Of A 200-Million-Year-Old Massospondylus At Home By Samriddhi Dastidar, Tech Times, January 15, 2018 http://www.techtimes.com/articles/218811/20180115/dinosaur-enthusiasts-now-make-3d-prints-200-million-year-old.htm http://www.morphosource.org/Detail/ProjectDetail/Show/project_id/426 The paper is: Chapelle KEJ, Choiniere JN. (2018) A revised cranial description of Massospondylus carinatus Owen (Dinosauria: Sauropodomorpha) based on computed tomographic scans and a review of cranial characters for basal Sauropodomorpha.

Constantly forgetting to order display tools to securely display my fossils which are right now at risk of being damaged from grinding the glass shelves in my display, I decided to print a stand for my last model before I took my 3D printer home (and not use it until I get a microSD reader so I could transfer files to the printer). I didn't really pay too much attention to exact dimensions, but it actually printed quite fine and did fit one of my boxed fossils I wanted to display but couldn't before. The stand is blue because that's the only color of filament I own When I get to buy a microSD reader sometime later, I'll probably print more of these stands, and maybe even print a custom stand for all of my fossils (except for riker mounts which simply can't be printed)
This will appeal to dinosaur fans and modellers alike. It is a sort of methodological travelogue,and (i think) an entertaining read . I haven't yet looked at the authors article(s?) in Pal Elec ,which probably is/(are) among the same line(s) . SIZE:about 14 Mb
