The Coral Reef MakeCNC 3D Scene.
This is yet another new innovation from the workshops of makeCNC!
makeCNC's artists have spent several months working on a new inovation in 3D Puzzle Patterns for CNC and Laser cutting. These wonderful and highly detailed 3D Scenes usually have several creatures and elements and are equal to making several single 3D Puzzles so be prepared for a Challange. We have tried to create a broad spectrum of subject matter but please feel free to email us suggestions for future scenes . If these first scenes do well we will be adding many more in the future.Some of the scenes have been created as sets and display common subject matter, however, each scene can by made as a single project.
Please Note: Many parts of this model are very detailed at lower scale like 1/8th and 3mm material thickness and if cut by a CNC router will require very tiny bits to be able to cut all the details. We recommend that Router users cut at at least 1/4 or 6mm scale and still use the smallest bit possible to retain detail. If you understand feeds and speeds well for your router you can still cut these files at 1/8th and 3mm or even smaller but please understand that they are complex and will require some forethought to achieve good results at small scale using a CNC router.
The Models of The Coral Reef and Accessories are Full 3D Models!
Comes in both metric and imperial scales.
Awesome Coral Reef Scene in Full 3D
Coral reefs are underwater structures made from calcium carbonate secreted by corals. Coral reefs are colonies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups. The polyps belong to a group of animals known as Cnidaria, which also includes sea anemones and jellyfish. Unlike sea anemones, coral polyps secrete hard carbonate exoskeletons which support and protect their bodies. Reefs grow best in warm, shallow, clear, sunny and agitated waters.
Often called "rainforests of the sea", coral reefs form some of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth. They occupy less than 0.1% of the world's ocean surface, about half the area of France, yet they provide a home for 25% of all marine species,including fish, mollusks, worms, crustaceans, echinoderms, sponges, tunicates and other cnidarians. Paradoxically, coral reefs flourish even though they are surrounded by ocean waters that provide few nutrients. They are most commonly found at shallow depths in tropical waters, but deep water and cold water corals also exist on smaller scales in other areas.
Coral reefs deliver ecosystem services to tourism, fisheries and shoreline protection. The annual global economic value of coral reefs was estimated at US $375 billion in 2002. However, coral reefs are fragile ecosystems, partly because they are very sensitive to water temperature. They are under threat from climate change, oceanic acidification, blast fishing, cyanide fishing for aquarium fish, overuse of reef resources, and harmful land-use practices, including urban and agricultural runoff and water pollution, which can harm reefs by encouraging excess algal growth.
