NCSM 3D Model Gallery

3D model gallery of specimens from the three paleontology collections at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. The viewer uses the 3D JavaScript library, three.js, with data pulled from the Museum’s primary RESTful API. An inventory of all the models is available here: https://collections.naturalsciences.org/paleo-models. If you’re looking for a great example, then I highly recommend one of the Paleobotany specimens, such as NCSM 114. Just make sure you are using Google Chrome to view the model.
