Hi Everyone,

We are looking to extend GB3D, the UK type fossils database ( ) into microfossils, and this will involve the 3d digitization of mostly isolated forams, conodonts and ostracods. What equipment do list-members suggest for working with these groups? -  we have been considering the Alicona Infintefocus and Photogrammetry. Any suggestions much appreciated. Is there any relevant literature?
