University of Dundee has an extraordinary collection from the internationally renowned polymath D'Arcy Thompson - an amazing variety of mammals, birds, fish, insects and reptiles from around the world.
In 2016 the D'Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum began a project in collaboration with the University's Centre for Anatomy & Human Identification to digitise specimens from the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum.
Smaller specimens were scanned using a Nikon XT H 225ST micro CT scanner, while larger specimens were captured using hand-held structured light scanners (Artec Eva and Artec Space Spider).
The resulting 3D models are hosted online via Sketchfab and are available for viewing and downloading worldwide under a creative commons licence.Explore specimens in 3D!
