The corner of 45th and 15th in Seattle’s University District has been undergoing a huge transformation. That’s where the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture is partnering with other UW departments to use 3D printing technology to reconstruct one of the Pacific Northwest’s earliest residents – a woolly mammoth.
