About Project

The longnose gar (Lepisosteus osseus), also known as needlenose gar, longnose garpike, and billy gar, is a ray-finned fish in the family Lepisosteidae. The genus may have been present in North America for about 100 million years. There are references to gars being a primitive group of bony fish because they have retained some primitive features, such as a spiral valve intestine, but gars are a highly evolved group of fish, and not primitive in the sense they are not fully developed.

An aquarium found us to make one exhibition model of the longnose gar as people cannot clearly observe the details of its body through looking into the glass. Through several thorough communication with the scientists in the aquarium, our specialists now know a lot about this fish and perfectly recover the true color of it.

  • Step 1: 3D modeling the longnose gar with reference to the scientists and HD photos.
  • Step 2: Printing the model with an SLA 3D printer using SLA ABS-like Resin.
  • Step 3: Remove the support structure, examine the model, putty filling, simple coloring, and fine coloring.
