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.
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome is a respiratory disease in humans which is caused by the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV). There has been one near pandemic to date, between the months of November 2002 and July 2003, with 8,096 known infected cases and 774 deaths (a case-fatality rate of 9.6%) worldwide being listed in the World Health Organization's (WHO) 21 April 2004 concluding report.
