BRUCE ASATO / BASATO@STARADVERTISER.COM Don Stratton, who was a sailor on the USS Arizona during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, and one of just a handful of USS Arizona survivors still living, held Monday a 3-D printed model of a soda bottle — the original of which was found on the sunken battleship. At right is Pete Kelsey, strategic projects executive from Autodesk, who used the data collected in the 3-D modeling programs to enable the 3-D printing of the artifacts.
