Workshop leader: Daniel Pett, Head of Digital & IT, Fitzwilliam Museum
This two-hour workshop will show you how to make a 3D scan of an object. By the end of this workshop, you should be equipped to make a scan like this one.
We will be covering the basics of a technique called photogrammetry. It is non-invasive and requires very little equipment. In this process, we use computer software to align multiple overlapping photographs together to reconstruct 3-dimensional measurements. This process is not new and has rapidly risen to become an industry standard.
In the first part of the workshop you will be given instructions and will see a demonstration of how to create a 3D model. Afterwards, you will be taken into a gallery in the Fitzwilliam Museum and be able to try out the process for yourself.
For the workshop, you will need to bring:
A device capable of taking digital photos. You can use a compact camera, a DSLR or a mobile phone
A way of transferring your photos to a computer
A computer that has at least 8GB of RAM (Apple, PC, or Linux)
Downloaded Agisoft Photoscan Standard and have requested a demo key
Training material will also be available online to follow the workshop.
If you would like to attend one of the workshops, but are not able to bring any of the equipment above, please let us know as we may be able to loan you them for the workshop.
