3D Printed Fossil Replicas Reveal Lifestyle Of Ancient Cephalopods

David Peterman, Kathleen Ritterbush and their colleagues at University of Utah took 3D printed reconstructions of fossil cephalopods to actual water tanks (including a University of Utah swimming pool) to see how their shell structure may have been tied to their movement and lifestyle.

“Thanks to these novel techniques,” says Peterman, a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Geology and Geophysics, “we can trudge into a largely unexplored frontier in paleobiology. Through detailed modeling, these techniques help

This photographer 3D printed a 3D lens for mirrorless cameras

3D printing your lenses or lens hoods has been a thing for a while, and you can make some cool creations. Well, this 3D-printed 3D lens is definitely one of them. George Moua designed a 3D lens for a digital mirrorless camera, and in this video, Mathieu Stern put it to a test to show you how it works and what you can capture with it.

The lens was inspired by vintage stereoscopic cameras that gained the biggest popularity in the 1950s. There are also lens accessories like Stereax that let you turn your regular lens into a 3D one.
