Tardigrade Low-poly 3D model

Highly Detailed 3d model of a Tardigrade.

The Tardigrade (also called 'water bear' or 'moss piglet') is a microscopic extremophile - an organism that can survive in very adverse conditions such as extreme ranges in temperature, radiation, pressure, and even the vacuum of space.

Created in Maya 2012 and rendered with Mental Ray. The electron microscope shader has also been created for and applied to the Cinema 4D and 3D Studio Max files.

Each file format contains the high polygon (14,562 faces) and low polygon (3,716 faces) mesh, which is ideal for rigging.

All file formats contain identical geometry with clean and accurate polygonal construction that can be smoothed or sub divided. Colors and textures can be easily changed.

Close attention to detail makes this model ideal for use in broadcast, print work, advertising, design visualization, personal projects, etc.
