Digital models made for simulation, 3D printing, or interactive media. Designed to give a depth of understanding gained from exploration of multiple viewpoints and spatial relationships. They can be sculpted from scratch or based on medical imagining.
3D Printed Insect Models for At War With Nature Exhibit
ZBrush, Blender, Formlabs Form 2 3D printer, and Mixed media
A Lymantria dispar dispar moth and Cochliomyia hominivorax fly sculpted and 3D printed for the exhibit At War With Nature at the University of Georgia Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies. The models were sculpted in ZBrush from observation of pinned specimen under a microscope. After rendering was completed, the model was 3D printed in parts and assembled. The models were then painted, mounted, and fibrous details were applied.
On display October 2021 thru May 2022.
The models are roughly a 16 inch wingspan for the moth and 10 inches from head to abdomen for the fly.
Venous Drainage of the Dog Brain
ZBrush, Substance Painter, Cinema4D, Redshift, and Sketchfab
Venous drainage of the dog brain based on Miller’s Anatomy of the Dog. Created to supplement a cadaveric dissection course for University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine.
Obstetrical Management of Dystocia in the Cow
ZBrush, Cinema4D, Marvelous Designer, and Photoshop
This 3D model accompanies an interactive iBook created to supplement a third-year veterinary reproductive course at the University of Georgia. The purpose of this project is to combine illustrations and 3D models to improve veterinary students’ ability to visualize anatomy and spatial relationships between the fetus and cow. The 3D models were primarily sculpted in ZBrush
and rigged using Cinema 4D.

Megalodacne heros Model
ZBrush, MakerBot 3D printer, and Mixed media
A Megalodacne heros beetle sculpted and 3D printed to give a general audience a tactile interactive experience that closely mimics investigation of an insect in real life, yet at a more accessible scale. The model was sculpted in ZBrush from observation of both pinned articulated and dissected specimen under a microscope. After rendering was completed, the model was 3D printed in parts and assembled. The orange pattern of the elytra was painted on and additional fibrous details were added to the antenna, mouthparts and tarsi.
Articulated, the model is 23 inches tall, roughly 25 times the size of the actual specimen.
