3D Printing With High Precision

Oracle Ox Bone with Oldest Chinese Writing 3-D Printed

Seth Augenstein | March 24, 2016

Amid chaos in China 3,000 years ago, some wise leaders carved ox shoulder bones, engraved writing on them, and held them over a searing fire. The heat cracks that resulted were messages from the spirit world, guiding leaders in warfare and farming, medicine and meteorology, and other crucial developments.
The bones were not discovered for thousands of years, but they proved traditional Chinese history stretched back much further than Western historians believed. 

A 3000-year-old ox bone - inscribed with the earliest-known example of Chinese writing - has become the world's first 'oracle bone' to be scanned and printed in 3D. Source:
