How to make 3D scans in a museum gallery.

Hello and welcome to this 2 hour workshop on how to make a 3D scan of one of the Fitzwilliam Museum’s objects. By the end of this workshop, you should be equipped to make a scan like this one of the Terme Boxer’s head. We will be covering the basics of a technique called photogrammetry.

This workshop is part of our Industry Pump Priming award:

Do (not) Touch: Using 3-D modelling to explore tactile interaction with museum collections and how this can affect the visitor perception and reaction to the museum’s ‘Do Not Touch’ policy

If at anytime during this tutorial, you do not understand or need clarification, please stop me and ask.
