Drexel University yesterday detailed an initiative to use  three-dimensional printing to create models of dinosaur bones for  further study. Researchers hope that models will allow them to study how  dinosaurs moved and help create smaller robotic models of massive  dinosaurs. (Photo credit: Drexel University)
