3D printing settings

This model is from a scan of a fossil from the collection of Museum Victoria. A small portion of the original matrix has been removed from the base of the model.

The full model has been successfully printed in PLA on a Replicator 2 on the standard medium settings.

We found that greater definiton in the print can be achieved with the trilobite in a vertical orientation. In the additional STL files (Cut 1 and Cut 2), the model has been split to facilitate vertical printing.

Museums Victoria is AustraliaN's largest public museum organisation.

As the state museum for Victoria, we are responsible for looking after the State collection of nearly 17 million objects, documents, photographs and specimens

Museums Victoria's origins date back to 1854, with the founding of the National Museum of Victoria and the establishment, in 1870, of the Industrial and Technological Museum of Victoria (later known as the Science Museum of Victoria). By proclamation of the Museums Act 1983 (Vic.), these two institutions were amalgamated to form what is known today as Museums Victoria, governed by the Museums Board of Victoria. In 1996, Museums Victoria took over custodianship of the World Heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building.
