German scientists have 3D-printed a dinosaur bone that was damaged in WWII

Many dinosaur fossils are preserved in plaster casts in order to protect them but it becomes difficult to remove the cast without damaging the fossil as time goes by. However, researchers at Berlin’s Charite Campus Mitte have developed a way to study the bone without damaging it.

Researchers have created a 3D-printed reproduction of a dinosaur bone damaged during World War II, a development they say will help them study a dinosaur’s structure without further damaging the original.
