You can find sculptures of animal skulls in all kinds of museum shops and home decor outlets, but Scott Camazine plans to create sculptures of animal skulls based upon CT scans taken from an actual specimen and print them using 3D printing technology.

The primary goal of his project is to create a collection of sculptures of animal skulls that accurately reflect the complex structures of nature. Camazine is a nature and animal lover since his childhood. Now, as a medical doctor and biologist Camazine is able to use his knowledge in computer, medicine, 3D printing and art to show the world the extraordinary beauty of the nature.

The CT scans of animal's skull provide an exquisitely accurate rendering of skeletal structures. Using radiology and computer modeling software Camazine transfers these images to digital files for 3D printing. His goal is to create an entire menagerie of sculptures of different animal skulls, and in addition, to provide these digital files as free downloadable resources for students, biologists and artists to use as non-commercial resources.

Camazine is looking for support on Kickstarter. The sculptures will be printed in acrylic plastic, stainless steel, bronze, and silver using 3D printing technology. Most of fund from the rewards goes to 3D printing company that fabricates the skulls, but Camazine hopes that the funding from this project will allow him to process, print, promote and distribute skeletal sculptures of dozens of different animals to a wide audience.
