The Hexapods of Mars
by gpvillamil, published
If you started with a different body plan, and tried to explore permutations to occupy different ecological niches, what would you come up with?
These creatures are a thought experiment, they are all descended from the [same 6 legged "ancestor" skeleton](http://www.123dapp.com/3dcr-Creature/Martian-Hexapod-Ancestor/1354687), made with [123D Creature](http://www.123dapp.com/creature).
This came out of a brainstorming session about how to use 123D Creature in teaching evolutionary biology, taking advantage of the feature that lets you re-use a skeleton and then sculpt a different creature.

Yeah, using the support requires some calibration, but I'm getting very good results these days, enough that I don't really worry about it.
In Raft module, try setting base and interface layers ot 0, and interface layer density to 0.4. I made some tweaks to the support flow rate too, will post those when I can look them up.
They look absolutely awesome! I definitely have to give it a try, even though IÂ´m always skeptical about the support stuff.

If you have the 123D Creature iPad app, you can open them from the community (search for "mars evolution"), or you can open the ["ancestor"](http://www.123dapp.com/3dcr-Creature/Martian-Hexapod-Ancestor/1354687) skeleton and make your own variations.
