3-d modelling can be used to bring a museum’s collection closer to the audience allowing in-depth digital engagment as well as remote digital engagement. The audience can move items through 360º of orientation and also zoom-in, to study details.
The 3-d scans can be converted to video or uploaded to interactive 3-d modelling platforms.
The technology is used in architecture, engineering, art and design and has applictions with-in teaching settings, enabling the introducion of learners to advanced, but commonly used, technology.
These model below was created in our in our 3-d scanning studio.
The model below, from Llandaff Cathedral, was shot on-location, and is made from converting several hundred 2-d images into a 3-d model. The technique can be applied to construct models of buildings.
We have also successfully scanned people’s faces. The examples below are of Welsh Miners, part of an R+D project with Arts Council Wales, and the project used as an installation for the Diffusion Photo Festival in Cardiff, Wales.
Virtual tours offer the opportunity for the public to engage with museums and galleries.
A virtual tour will never relalce a physical visit it does offer the ability preview the site, study and move, within a space, virtually.
