"The Digital Morphology library is a dynamic archive of information on digital morphology and high-resolution X-ray computed tomography of biological specimens. Browse through the site and see spectacular imagery and animations and details on the morphology of many representatives of the Earth's biota."
One of the most impressive features of DigiMorph is their 3-D printing capabilities. Not only can you create replicas of a specimen, but you can scale a specimen up or down in size.
DigiMorph also has a library of printable STL files of specimens that can be downloaded and printed at other 3-D printers.
