| ||Ask HN: How can I 3D print my skeleton for research?|

I would like to 3D print my skeleton to observe bone structure/features.
1. What kind of medical scanning would be appropriate for this case? Where can I get such a scan and pay (out of pocket) for it? Are there any dangers, and if serious, is it worth the fun of replicating your own skeleton?
2. What kind of medical scanning hardware would best suit my need? Does it support exporting imaging data for later 3D printing?
3. What's the best 3D printer (or printing service company) and material to print the imaging data from the scanning?
Thanks for your assistance!
