3D Models for Anthropology, Archaeozoology and Cultural Heritage

when 14 May 2018 - 18 May 2018
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 350

The class will experiment and get familiar with the acquisition of 3D data by practicing different techniques and supplies (blue light scan, laser scan, photogrammetry). Participants will be given a detailed overview of the general concept behind CT scanning, while dedicated datasets will be provided by the organisers. Raw models will be post-processed using Geomagic Design X to create a final product that can be straightforwardly used for display, morphometric analysis, and more elaborate analyses . CT Data will then be processed using Avizo Lite, a multipurpose tool designed for effectively discriminating between internal tissue proportions and for the creation of 3D models starting form computer tomographic datasets.
