A 3D model of the “cast tail” of a recently deceased, similarly-sized alligator as the ultimate recipient of the final prosthetic tail, Mr. Stubbs. The 3D model was created by Artec Certified Reseller Stax 3D https://www.artec3d.com/reseller/stax-3d using an Artec Eva https://www.artec3d.com/portable-3d-scanners/artec-eva, and the scan was done and processed in Artec Studio https://www.artec3d.com/3d-software/artec-studio. Next, the 3D model was exported as an STL file, and from this the 3D-printed cast tail was made. Using the cast tail, several prosthetic tails were made for Mr. Stubbs.
