As part of the AFF621: Remaking the Physical module in the MA for Digital Humanities (NUIM), students were assigned to do 3D recording exercises for the purpose of evaluating their skills in digital recording and to assess their abilities to carry out effective workflows for 3D recording cultural heritage projects. Students were requested to focus on two case studies for the digital recordings. The first case study involved the capturing of a prehistoric vessel within a museum setting, the second case study involved the capture of a statue in the outdoors. Students were requested to capture the objects using a digital camera, and process them using photogrammetry software and online tools to produce 3D models. Along with producing 3D models, students were asked to submit a series of blog posts to document the design of the workflow, the execution of capturing and processing of the 3D models, and assess their experiences in working with different datasets. The following blog posts are a result of these efforts.
