The team that works on 3D modeling: Electron & Confocal Microscopy Unit director Gary Bauchan (front), entomologist Ronald Ochoa, biologist Joseph Mowery (center), IT specialist Christopher Pooley (back left), and ORISE postdoctoral fellow Connor Gulbronson. Here they are using the laser-scanning confocal microscope to make an accurate 3D image of a predatory mite, which is then used with the 3D printer to create the models.
