The last post discussed some of the issues and challenges with 3D computer modeling in the cultural heritage sector which have emerged over the last two decades. In this post, I will introduce my case study for the AFF621: 3D computer modeling assignment. Students were given three contexts to base a case study, and I have chosen the following context: Research Context: A team of cultural heritage specialists has asked me for my contribution … Continue reading

Post 3: 3DM – Issues and Challenges with 3D Computer Modeling in the Cultural Heritage Sector
