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.
