Sample text

Gabriel used 123D Catch to 3D scan a tortoise specimen and printed the models at the UF Marston Science Library. He used the 3D model to create a cast, then duplicated the model using Plasticine since he wished to capture bite marks and the plastic was too hard for animals to bite. Gabriel then painted and scented the models, placing them in artificial burrows at the Archbold Biological Station in Highlands County, Florida. He successfully recorded predator occurrence and attack rates at each point using motion-sensor cameras.

18 ▲ C H A P T E R 2 If an FFF-type 3D printer is used, be prepared to manage the filament debris that is inevitable after each model print. Most printers lay down a test line of plastic to clear the model and this, along with model supports and rafting, will accumulate near the printers. If the filament is PLA, these scraps may be recycled, but other materials will need to be placed in the trash. Filament bits will adhere to carpet, so smooth flooring or a carpet covering may be preferable. One 3D printer’s mess is fairly easy to contain, similar to an area where you may supply a pencil sharpener, hole punch, and stapler.
