Bat Scan

This week I attempted to use our laser scanner to create a 3D image of one our museum bats.  While running the scan was fun and great practice, the actual 3D image came out horrendous! Some things I thought of afterwards…

1) I was particularly interested in the ears of this bat and I realized the specimen I picked was way too small to get any resolution

2) As cute as this little guy was, his fuzzy fur made scanning and aligning multiple images pretty rough.

Next week I shall get a better scan!
