These 3D reconstructions are generated from the serial sections Reconstructions for this stage were made using WinSurf by Eric Neufeld and Scott Lozanoff. We would like to thank Eric and Scott for allowing us to use this updated version of SURFdriver. We would also like to acknowledge Eric Neufeld for his invaluable assistance with the reconstructions.
The animations are made from the WinSurf reconstructions. To enable users to better study the reconstructions the original WinSurf files, together with a WinSurf Viewer, are available for downloading. The viewer allows users to open WinSurf data files and view reconstructions with all the display options of the full reconstruction program. Models can be rotated about all three orthogonal axes, users can zoom in and out when viewing models and models can be translated. Also, the color and opacity of different objects in the models can be varied.
