3D Scanning Museum Artefacts – Museum Online Interactive 3D Collections

Superscan 3D specialise in the 3D scanning museum artefact’s, whether small or large. We use one of the worlds most powerful ‘None-Contact’ 3D scanning devices, which is highly mobile and calibrated for a consistent accuracy of 0.5mm. This incredible technology also captures surface information in vibrant 24 Bit colour. This enables 3D scans to be converted into full colour ‘Online Interactive 3D Artefacts’, which can be viewed and manipulated in realtime using Sketchfab 3D realtime software (Examples below). 

 

Interactive Example: Click the above image to control in ‘Virtual Reality 3D’. Your touch-screen controls are:Rotate: using a single finger, Zoom IN & OUT: using two finger slide, Move UP/Down: using two fingers). 

 


Please Note! The above interactive model is heavily compressed to allow it to move online in ‘realtime’. Hence a lot of the 3D scan detail which we origionally captured can’t been seen. See the below images of the ‘Actual 3D Scan Capture’ and touch to use ‘ZOOM’ tool.

Of course, once an artefact has been 3D scanned, it can also be reproduced as a high quality scale replica or collectable, which can be retailed at your museum giftshop. Hence this can be a way of generating additional revenue for the museum and covering the cost of 3D scanning. Converting 3D scans into high quality bronze collectables, is another area which Superscan 3D specialise in. Find out more here

Trivia Snippets – Artefact vs. Artifact 

Artefact is the British spelling of the noun meaning, primarily, an object shaped by human workmanship, especially one of historical or archaeological interestArtifact is the American spelling. Both spellings are etymologically justifiable, and both are hundreds of years old in English. The British preference for artefact is a new development. The two forms vied for ascendancy in British writing through much of the 20th century until artefact finally gained the upper hand around 1990. The following ngram, which graphs the use of artefact and artifact in a large number of British books and periodicals published from 1900 to 2000, renders the story in visual form: The corresponding graph for American publications is much more straightforward: Canadian writers tend to use the American spelling. Artefact is more common everywhere outside North America.
