Chimpanzee skull 3D Model
Micro CT scan of a young chimpanzee skull from the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum at the University of Dundee.
Pan sp. - Chimpanzee. DUNUC 2404 & 2404/1. Length=15cm. Acquired by D’Arcy Thompson from William Cross of Liverpool in 1886. Writing to his grandfather, D’Arcy noted: “I yesterday received a chimpanzee, one of the most manlike of apes; it is the rarest and most valuable specimen I have yet had… One of the young Doctors came and helped me to remove its brain at 11 o’clock at night. It was in beautiful condition. I shall be able to make a whole series of preparations besides cleaning the skeleton and stuffing the skin.” The stuffed skin and the brain are also still in the museum.
Scanned with a Nikon XT H 225ST micro CT scanner. The resulting file is exported as an stl. and imported in to Zbrush. Texture is added from photographs using the Spotlight function and Polypainting.
