Replicas and 3D printed Museum specimens Filter by
From a 700-year-old lion skull to the teeth that led to the discovery of dinosaurs, these 3D-printed specimens make souvenirs and unique gifts like no other.
To create these replicas, a digital model of each specimen was built using CT scans, ensuring an extremely high level of detail. A 3D printer then replicates the specimen from the scanned image, using a specially engineered acrylic called PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate). Thousands of layers are gradually added in the printing process, giving the finished piece the highest level of accuracy and a bone-like feel.
