In 2011, we completed the L.A. County Museum of Natural History’s Cenozoic and Dinosaur Hall redevelopment. This is a wide ranging project that involved the disassembly, repair, consolidating, and remounting of many specimens including Allosaurus, Stegosaurus, Camptosaurus, and Platosaurus for display. We also reconstructed and mounted many new specimens using our 3D scanning and rapid prototype printing to make precise models of missing elements for specimens such as Struthiomimus, Thescelosaurus, and Paleoparadoxia. We also prepared out a Mastodon skeleton, Saurolophus skull, and Lambeosaurus caudals out of matrix material for eventual display. In addition, there were many other cast dinosaur and mammal skeletons mounted to complete the new displays for their reopening in 2010 and 2011.
