We scanned an oyster shell for the convenience of being able to model over it.

We also talked about modeling our cage design after the following structure.  When originally talking about our designs we were considering the structures be made of Calcium Carbonate.

In addition to this, while at the ‘Holy Spat’ talk, we realized that the current cage design is simply an inconvenience and what if that entirely was redesigned to accommodate the culture and cultivation of oyster forming and oyster reef rebuilding.  A similar structure to the jack toys was considered as our design model. As a structure that reaches from the inside to the outside, it allows wheel build up to maximize its volume and grow off of each other.
