The author gave a presentation at this months UFOP meeting, he has the entire skeleton of Triceratops digitized, he did it while they were restoring the mount at the Smithsonian in washington DC. It has alot more detail, very cool
That's incredible, even if it is low res 3d shape. All the main info is preserved. If only this were a faster process. It doesn't say how long it takes, does it? Much better than photographic records alone, since those tend to leave out views from underneath or behind, (like the underside of a vertebrate's cranium). Hard to make comparisons then to a fragment from below or behind. I wonder if that's affordable for most university departments.
