American Museum of Natural History Unveils its Titanosaur Model


YouTube Link

Today marks the opening of the latest dinosaur model exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History: the titanosaur. A report of the discovery of a titanosaur in Argentina, Dreadnoughtus, was featured previously at Neatorama. Now the exciting find has been fully excavated and its dimensions scanned to make the amazing model seen in this video. The model is so huge that it wasn't able to be fitted into a single room at the museum — at least 10 feet of it extends out the doorway!

Though 3D-printed with fiberglass, the weight of the model remained an issue due to its sheer size. Steel reinforcements had to be employed throughout the cast in order to keep the dinosaur’s long neck and tail stable and erect. Via Gizmodo
