Our HornRaiser project closed on May 1st. At that point your generosity had pushed us well beyond the initial goal of $15K with total contributions of $17,119 from 88 donors. We can now train additional undergraduates and generate a more extensive collection of 3D digital files that will be free for you to download.
What is the next phase this summer? First we will be in touch to check your perk selection and let you know more details about each level. Whatever your level you will receive a beautiful digital adoption certificate containing a small image of your fossil. Then we shall start producing the higher resolution images and writing the associated text. As soon as the scanner arrives we shall be busy training and running test scans. Then on to generate your scans and we'll let you know when you can live watch your 3D print being produced.
For those visiting the collections we shall be in touch to arrange a time convenient to you, and are looking forward to having this opportunity to meet you in person. The artist is working on the limited edition print and we'll keep you informed as it progresses.
Thank you all for making this project such a success and for tolerating all the updates with such good humor!
