Captain Nemo! We’ve got a stowaway aboard! What shall we do with him, sir?
Hmm…actually that’s the wrong Nautilus, isn’t it? This one is a model of the namesake for the Jules Verne vessel, a cephalopod with a chambered shell that allows it to float underwater and move using jet propulsion — a living submarine. Its chambered shell is also a beautiful logarithmic spiral, a fascinating geometric phenomenon which occurs in many places throughout nature from romanesco cauliflower to hurricanes.
This nautilus shell is a classic form and we’re glad to have it on Thingiverse — well done once again, tc_fea!
