ACT Fossil Emblem Candidate #4, 3D model of Retziella capricornae, CPC: 20144
Authors / CoAuthors
This product is a rendered 3D model of one of the five ACT fossil emblem candidates, the brachiopod Retziella capricornae. The format of the file is ply. or Polygon File Format, and it is designed to store 3D data. The model requires no post-scanning manipulation as it is already complete. The purpose of this is to make this file format publicly available to local school communities so they can 3D print the fossil emblems themselves and engage students with Earth science related topics.
