Femur Scan Using FARO 3D Scanner

The Engineering Machine Shop recently acquired a Faro arm laser scanner, and one of the first people to use it was Leah Taylor. Leah is a 1st year’s Masters BME (Biomedical Engineering) student, who does research in the UI Orthopaedic Biomechanics Lab (UIOBL). She scanned a model of a human femur. I asked her why, and got this elegant description of the orthopaedic surgical skills simulator project she is working on.


Napoleon's death mask came to the Engineering Machine Shop to be scanned in October 2012.
