Micro CT scan of a Blaschka model of a Syllid Worm, Autolytus Cornutus (developmental stage 1) from the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum at the University of Dundee.
DUNUC 9326 - glass model of a polychaete syllid worm, thought to be Autolytus cornutus (= Proceraea cornuta) developmental stage 1. Length=8cm.
D’Arcy Thompson acquired a set of Blaschka’s exquistely delicate glass models in 1888. In Growth and Form, D’Arcy refers repeatedly to the art of the glass-blower, perhaps thinking of these very models.
Scanned with a Nikon XT H 225ST micro CT scanner. The resulting file is exported as an stl. and imported in to Zbrush.
