High resolution photographs and digital models of British type fossils #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Here’s an interesting resource for those curious about 3D printing (or designing from) shells and fossils — an archive of high resolution photographs and digital models of British type fossils! Via 3Ders.org.

The International Code on Zoological Nomenclature and the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi and plants require that every species or subspecies of organism, whether living or fossil, should have a type or reference specimen to define its characteristic features.

The GB3D Type Fossils Online project, funded by JISC, aims to develop a single database of the type specimens, held in British collections, of macrofossil species and subspecies found in the UK, including links to photographs (including ‘anaglyph’ stereo pairs) and a selection of 3D digital models.

The database currently contains only a selection of specimens and is still being populated.

These fossil images are 3D digital models, produced by laser scanning the original fossils, as part of the JISC funded GB/3D fossil types project.
