This is a 3d Influenza Virus in HIGH DEFINITION!
The virus is also shaded with procedural materials to allow infinite resolution no matter how close up you zoom into the model.
The model was built using quads, with efficiency in mind during the modeling process. It is designed to have the maximum detail with the least amount of polys needed to keep that shape. This is especially important to keep in mind if your are adding this model to a large scene with lots of objects. Using this model over others may help maintain system performance.
Using this model can help created realistic and high definition renderings to convey research or information to a 3rd party for informative or promotional means.
Influenza, commonly referred to as the flu, is an infectious disease caused by RNA viruses of the family Orthomyxoviridae (the influenza viruses), that affects birds and mammals. The most common symptoms of the disease are chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness/fatigue and general discomfort. Sore throat, fever and coughs are the most frequent symptoms. In more serious cases, influenza causes pneumonia, which can be fatal, particularly for the young and the elderly. Although it is often confused with other influenza-like illnesses, especially the common cold, influenza is a more severe disease than the common cold and is caused by a different type of virus. Influenza may produce nausea and vomiting, particularly in children, but these symptoms are more common in the unrelated gastroenteritis, which is sometimes called 'stomach flu' or '24-hour flu'
