yes it will and it is the difficulty of this reconstruction.

 

I have just finished a limb. It is the basis model wich will be slitly modilfy and copy (28 paires of legs!)

your CGI is very good, especially surface material.

Above bottom side rendering image is so much nice reference for me

Best regards.

 

 

attached CGI is my recent CGI output

well done !:dinothumb: It is a very good job. What species of trilobite is it? and what soft did you use to do this 3D model?

The Digestive System with gut, gut diverticulae (in the head and the thorax) and hepato-pancreas (only in the head). The hepatopancreas must be amanded.

The trilobite is Cedarina schachti ,Cambrian  trilobite.  

I use Blender for modeling Paleozoic fauna and Liqueur bottle modeling.

If this is your favorite one,    I will send you original modeling data via E=mail attachment.

PLS contact me without hesitation. 

best regards

 

other than Cedarina schachti, several number of trilobites data are also available.

Pls refer my web archives.

Thanks you comsuella2293 for your proposal and congratulations for your website, a lot of job here . I use cinema 4D (a old version) since 2003 and also zbrush and wings 3D

The nervous system is unkown, so it is a standart arthropodian one here, with protocerebron, deutocerebron but no tritocerebron because Trilobites had no second antenna.

eventually I have old version of C4D (my last update was 2004).  and after over 10 years interval, I restarted CGI by blender in Linux environment.

i keep watching your excellent CGI work.

Best regards

@ comsuelIa2293 start CGI by Brice but I can't do what I want with it. C4D 9.5 gives me all what I need for modelling and rendering. The procedural textures are amazing. I never successfuly use Blender.

 

It is time for modeling the muscular apparatus. I will do the job for a segment and hope copy paste for the other segments with a minimum of modifications.

The segment 2 will be the basis of all the others. Note that muscles are white, arteries in red and sinusal vessels in blue which is purely conventional because there is no hemoglobin in the arthropods hemolymph.
