Heritage and the Digital: All things 3D

Heritage and the Digital: All things 3D

At this final event in the current series, attendees will have the opportunity to see demonstrations and talks from researchers working on a range of different 3D technologies, including 3D scanning, printing and 3D interaction. Researchers from the University of Nottingham’s Mixed Reality Lab will discuss the pitfalls and opportunities in low-cost 3D printing, while Dr Gary Priestnall will bring back PARM and walk through the process of mapping landscapes and turning this data into interactive 3D models. Finally, experts from the University’s Digital Humanities Centre will reveal a variety of approaches to 3D scanning, ranging from highly specialised scanning equipment to innovative uses of off-the-shelf products such as Microsoft’s Kinect.
