Sample 3D Models
As proof of concept, below are several sample 3D models of various organisms. Over the coming year, as we travel to zoos, and various field locations, we will provide more models, and also more features, such as downloading, scale bars, and more! The models posted are reduced in size to allow posting - if you would like to access the full-resolution models, or wish to know more about the specimens (sizes, etc) please contact us.
