Oxford Researcher Recovers Jurassic Epoch Fossils with 3D Printing – 3D Printing Industry

Nothing says HAPPY THANKSGIVING quite like fossils in 3 – D recreations !
As a collector of ( smaller, MUCH SMALLER ) fossils & an adolescent ” rockhound ” nerdboy, this is something I could seriously get into.
As in ” Wow ! “, ” nerdgasm “, indulging my inner science geek – guy. Not quite ” Jurassic Park ” but we all know what happened there….. 🙂

I took the photo below a couple of years back & tinkered with it at the University of TN campus, Knoxville, TN, BTW.

Science - fiction, fantasy, horror & suspense ( But not really " nerd / geek " material ), armchair cultural anthropologist, interested in archaeology ( Although the closest I've been to an actual dig - site was Pinson Mounds outside Memphis ), & interested in the obscure, strange or sometimes things that would bore or put off other people.
