oVert to scan over 20000 vertebrates for free download and 3D printing

The openVertebrate (oVert) project is scanning between 20,000 and 30,000 fluid-preserved vertebrate specimens from institutions across the US and making them freely available to 3D print on the MorphoSource platform, a platform hosted by Duke University . Funded by a US National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, oVert has brought together research institutions who will CT scan the specimens, which constitute around 80% of living vertebrate genera, using a network of digitization centers across the US. Educators, scientists and designers will then be able to generate highly accurate models for teaching research or creation. By applying methods such as Finite […]
