More Mammoth Bones

The Mahaska County Conservation Board has acquired bones from the Oskaloosa mammoth, and a tibia, mammoth tibia vertebra, and hyoid from that collection were in the EMS for scanning and reproduction in the 3D printers. With the new FARO 3D scanner, scanning the tibia, which is about 27 inches long, is easy.

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.
