3D model description

Sculpture of an Archaeopteryx lithographica skull.
I've based much of the proportions on the 2d reconstruction from Peter Wellnhofer. Lots of reference used from the CT scans of the London specimen. The rest is mostly based on the Thermopolis, Eichstätt and Munich specimens.

Archaeopteryx is one of the oldest known birds. It lived during the Late Jurassic in what is now Bavaria, Germany.

3D printing settings

Use high detail for better printing of the smaller details.
The back of the jaw can be tricky to print since they are quite thin. I suggest having good support for that area.
