The Bureau of Reclamation and the Idaho Museum of Natural History (IMNH) have partnered to make fossils more available to the public. Beginning today, the 3-D scan models of Bison latifrons specimens are available online to view, download, and print in 3-D.
The Bison Digitization Project, creates an open-access digital archive of fossil Bison that roamed eastern Idaho during the Ice Age.
This digital collection includes 250 three-dimensional models from 148 unique specimens of some of the most important and complete fossil bison in North America, curated by the IMNH.
These files are intended for use by educators, researchers, and the general public for non-commercial purposes. The 3-D printing of these virtual specimens is allowed for use in educational and research situations and for private use, but they should not be provided for sale without the express written consent of Reclamation.
