Introducing a new series (#SciencethePast): My colleague, Dr. Alexandra Ratzlaff, has been working with the Brandeis Techne Group as Residents at the Autodesk Technology Center and in partnership with the Brandeis MakerLab run by Brandeis’ very own Ian Roy. They have some pretty amazing work to feature, but in our autumnal mood, here’s a post-Halloween Update.
We posted earlier on the Pumpkinception, but here are some images and links to higher resolution models. We used the pumpkin exercise to practice some of the work we do with objects in the Brandeis CLARC (Classical Art Research Collection) and to train for work we do in the field (more on that soon).
We scanned the Techne pumpkin using an Artec Spider 3D scanner and then rendered it in Metashape. (Here’s the Artec 3D website.)
For comparison, we did the same thing with photogrammatry using the SCAPP and rendered it in Metashape too.
What’s the SCAPP bot? Stay tuned…
If you go to this link, you can see the 3D model and some other cool stuff they are doing.
