Morphosource 3d scans lemurs & releases stl files


Researchers from Duke University have created a digital database of 3D scans of deceased animals. The online database, Morphosource, has been developed with the aim of providing an accessible research tool.

The creators, the Boyer Lab for Evolutionary Morphology & Paleobiology at Duke University have now partnered with the Duke Lemur Center to collect 3D images of the many endangered species of lemurs.

The Boyer Lab focuses its research on primate species with the intention of understanding the origins of human evolution. Partnering with the Duke Lemur Center means the team can have access to a vast number of deceased lemur species.
