D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum 3D - Emperor Penguin

Surface scan of a mounted Emperor Penguin from the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum at the University of Dundee.

Aptenodytes forsteri - Emperor Penguin. DUNUC 12091. Height=108cm. This specimen was almost certainly brought back from the Dundee Antarctic Expedition of 1892-3, and is thus one of the oldest surviving specimens of this species.

Scanned with an Artec Eva surface scanner. The resulting file is exported as an obj. and imported into Zbrush. The texture is captured during the scanning process and converted to Polypaint in Zbrush.

We’d love to hear from you if you download or print our models, especially if you use them in education and outreach.
