5000yo iceman mummy ‘resurrected’ by 3d printer (video)
\"Ice Man\" Oz, 5000-year- The mummies found 25 years ago in the Alps were recreated by ancient artist Gary Stubb. After 3D printing based on CT scans, Staab painstakingly carved and hand-painted resin replicas of ancient humans.

Further analysis of the remains revealed that the man was involved in hand injuriesto- Shortly before his death, he fought. CT images of remains are critical for the development of models. \"When you are able to use scan data instead of analog measurements, the final copy is much more accurate,\" Staab said . \". \"Rebuilding hands is a challenge because they can\'t be caught in CT scans,\" said Otzi\'s South Tirol Archaeological Museum . \". Since 1998, his mummy has been preserved at the Archaeological Museum of South Tirol in Borzano, Italy. One of the new replicas will be touring the United States in October 2017, and the other two will be used for teaching purposes at the Cold Spring Harbor DNA Learning Center in New York.
