3D Plankton Prints
As part of my research, I collect CT scans of plankton. While the majority of my time is spent scanning pteropods, I have also scanned some foraminifera (some intentionally and some stuck in the shells of pteropods).
You can have a look at the scans and interact with them using Pedestal3D hosted through Macquarie University.
These 3D datasets from the CT scans can be increased to 50 or 100 times their original size and printed for use in outreach. I've used these at a variety of events from high school science fairs, to the EMS museum exhibit, to donor events at the Academy of Natural Sciences.
I want to share these files with as many people as possible. If you want access to them, please fill in this form and I'll send you a link to a google drive folder with the shape files and some information about the where the specimens came from.
If you have any further questions please e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
