I do have videos on modeling a worm, a snail shell, a "golden angle plantlet"
and an erythrocyte on my channel and I will do more. (I started with the simple
stuff, of course.) I will do many nice root systems and ramifications for

Your idea about the competition is great! I will certainly do this in the
future. I only have to find a suitable topic, but I think ramifications might be
