Head of the CT Lab

In this example, an indigenous South African chameleon species was scanned, which has three horns on its head making it quite unique. This example will be published as a part of a later scientific article but we show some selected images here as a sneak preview.




A closeup scan of the head was done which was then 3D printed in our 3D print lab. The resulting print was again scanned and compared to its “design file” from the original CT scan. This makes a great demonstration of the power of CT scanning to not only analyze the inside of any object but also provide great models for 3D printing and for comparing with other CAD files and making any kind of complex 3D measurement.
