3D model description

This is a life-size reconstruction of the Jurassic belemnite Passaloteuthis. Several exceptionally preserved specimens have been found in southern Germany, on which this model is based. The models are about 25cm in length.

It comes in two poses: with the arms open, showing the hooks, suction cups and the beak, and one with closed arms.

The eyes are separate parts which can be printed from clear resin and painted from the backside for a realistic look.

I used 3mm steel tubing to mount them on a wooden stand. A file for the nameplate is included.

I recommend printing these only on resin printers because of the small details!

The files are under copyright and it is forbidden to use them commercially.

3D printing settings

I printed the parts on an Anycubic Photon Mono X with white ABS-like resin, also from anycubic. The eyes were printed from clear standard resin and polished after printing.

The settings for the body parts were:

Anycubic ABS-like resin (white),

50 µm z steps,

2.0 s normal exposure,

40 s bottom layer exposure,

80% UV strength.

For the eyes:

Anycubic standard resin (clear),

50 µm z steps,

2.2 s normal exposure,

40 s bottom layer exposure,

60% UV strength.
