What is the 3D OsteoViewer?

The Bone Clones 3D OsteoViewer™ is a digital media platform designed to view 3D models of nearly 60 Bone Clones® casts on any digital device. This viewer allows for a 360-degree examination of individual skulls as well as a side by side human comparison skull for non-human primates and hominins. Each of the skulls is the same in scale and is horizontally aligned to the comparison skull on the Frankfort plane. Anyone interested in skull morphology, comparative anatomy and hominin evolution will find this App useful in understanding these concepts. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss arrangements customized to your needs, please use the “Contact Us” form, or call 800-914-0091 / 818-709-7991.
