Our animation for today is a large mammal bone scanned from the faunal type collection at the Virginia Museum of Natural History (VMNH). Normally, we use the NextEngine Desktop 3D scanner for bone, but I wanted to see whether the Sense 3D scanner could work with a large bone.  While the Sense 3D scanner works reasonably well for features and people, the quality of the scan for even a large bone is not sufficient for analytical needs.  VMNH intern Jessica Clark assisted with this scanning effort on July 18, 2014.
