Wow...That's incredible work you are doing. I can't even begin to think how hard or how much work must go into developing some like this. I can't wait to see what the finish product will look like.

Great work.....:D

It is tedious and boring : copy, past, resize, tweak all components.:hammer01: I spend a quater of hour on each segment and there is 25 segments ( 14 in the thorax and 11 in the pygidium). It will be my tomorow work. Today I am exhausted by modeling the cephalon. Now it's time to eat and sleep. Tomorow is an other day ;)

After two days of intensive work (for me and my computers :blink:) here is the result. Upper left : dorsal vue, upper righ : ventral vue, lower : lateral vue. Now I hope to be able to make an anatomical chart or a virtual dissection

Acidaspis is a great work.

digital sculpting is a nice and smart method to re-construct

Hi archeo,

 

fresh from our trilobite conference in Berlin:

 

I have shown some of your 3-D trilobite reconstrutions to Brigitte Schoenemann:

She is very interested to get in contact with you. Please send me a personal message if you are interested, too.

 

Best regards

 

Johannes

The circulatory system working :

Blood is pumped from the heart (1) into the arterial trunks (2) to go to the more little arteries (3) of the organs. There, there is no capillary system and the blood goes in interstices between cells and organs named "sinus" (4). Sinusal vessels (5) collect the blood of the different parts of the body, mainly by osmotic pressure, and conduct it to the gills (6). Reoxygenated blood return (7) to the pericardial cavity (8) and back to the heart passing by the ostia (9). Blood is moved in sinusal sytem by the dilation of pericardial cavity under action of pericardial muscles (10)

:trilosurprise: The anatomy is awesome! The cephalon reminds me of the extant Triops sp.

yes, and Triops feeds like some Trilobite as you can see at the end of this movie (1:22):

@Deruos : wel done ! I specialy like the second picture. Your corals are very well done . Adding polyps in some of it would enhance realism. Vue is a very good soft but renders are very time consuming.
