Dogfish skull model

Model information

Created by3D Anatomy Studios
Structure(s)Chondrocranium and brain
Modeling methodA photogrammetry scan was performed of the dissected skeletal elements 3DAS-ID00002 to obtain most of their outer surface structure. Most of the inner surface structure of the chondrocranium was obtained by segmenting a micro CT scan of 3DAS-ID00003. Additions and refinements were made to the skeletal element models by sculpting. The brain model was sculpted based on the hemisected brain of specimen 3DAS-ID00003 and dissection reference images.
