Virtual museum lets you download fossils to make 3D prints

Now there’s a new reason to own a 3D printer.  MorphoSource, launched at Duke in 2013, is the largest and most open digital fossil repository of its kind.   MorphoSource is allowing professionals and amauteurs download and create fossils that they can then study in their own labs for research purposes.  FYI the video on making a 3D prehistoric bunny skeleton is a personal favorite of mine.
