Free Project of the Month - Megalodon Shark Tooth

Post by Stephanie Downing »

For this month's project of the month Michael has created a fun and unusual project - a replica Megalodon shark tooth fossil for your “ancient artifacts” display area!

Long extinct, the Megalodon is the largest known predator in earth’s history. Their fossilized teeth have been found on every continent except Antarctica. Most fossil teeth are gray, black or brown due to the color of the minerals that replaced the dentine and enamel during fossilization. While small or broken teeth can be quite inexpensive, 7 " or larger Megalodon teeth are so rare, one was sold for nearly $50k!

Michael presented this project at our worldwide User Group meeting, showcasing some of the software features he used,including; drawing, node editing & the snapping tools to draw the Megalodon tooth and then using those vectors Michael used the create shape tool to model the tooth and to finish he showed us how you can create a component from a bitmap and how to give it that final touch using the sculpting tools.
