3D Printing Demonstration at Veterinary Medicine Library during CVM Open House 4/1

3D Printing will be on display at the Veterinary Medicine Library this Saturday, April 1st at the College of Veterinary Medicine Open House!

Visit the Veterinary Medicine Library to see a consumer-grade printer generating a dog scapula bone, examine other 3D-printed bones and materials, and learn more about 3D printing in research and medical education. Learn more about the laboratory of Assistant Professor Dr. Christopher Walker, an anatomist and biological anthropologist. 3D printed models from his research have already made it into area classrooms, allowing students to handle and mark up affordable versions of the the specimens that they’re learning about in their labs. “3D printed bones are durable, fully replaceable, recyclable and customizable. With the digital bone files, students can also use free software to view and study bones in three dimensions without needing to print,” according to Dr. Walker. Several of the bones he has digitized are freely available as printable files at Morphosource.

New Tech Lending at VML

A GoPro Hero5The William Rand Kenan Jr Library of Veterinary Medicine is pleased to announce the introduction of two new Tech Lending items that will offer NC State students, faculty and staff new opportunities for capturing and sharing both video and audio.

The GoPro Hero5 is a top-of-the-line action camera. Small but powerful, the Hero5 is capable of capturing 4K video at 30 frames per second, as well as time-lapse and standard photographs. The easy-to-use touchscreen and voice commands make the camera accessible to the average user, and videos and images can easily be transferred to your computer via USB or SD card.

The H4n Pro audio recorder

The VML has also added two brand new four-track digital audio recorders. The Zoom H4n Pro is the gold standard of field recording, with advanced dual microphones, natural-sounding preamps and a super-low noise floor. Two combo input jacks allow use of many types of external microphones, and the audio out port allows it to send high-definition stereo recordings directly to your camera.

Stop by and check them out today!
