Application of 3D Modeling and Printing Technology in Digitization of Living Animals
A Case Study on the 3D Milu Models Made by Milu Park
Abstract: Live animals such as milu deer are common exhibits in natural science museums. The maturity of high-tech production provides a new method for the digitization of living animals. Using 3D modeling and 3D printing technology, the working process is Pided into three stages: data acquisition, 3D modeling, and 3D printing. Three digital models of male, female, and baby milu are constructed, and a total of 300 Milu models have been printed. These works had a positive impact on Milu Park for scientific research, exhibition display, popular science teaching, and cultural and creative production. The main performances are: promoting the scientific and technological resources, popularizing the exhibition resources, creating new teaching tools, innovating cultural and creative products, and lay the foundation for future development.
