3D Scanning of Artifacts
Recently Stanford University published an article talking about out how Stanford University Libraries is helping to 3D scan bones and artifacts to create a 3D digital surrogate of the original.
“Digitization is one way we can not just preserve our heritage and our history but also make these really important objects or works of art available to our students and faculty and researchers in the world at large,” according to Stuart Snydman, Associate Director for digital strategy at Stanford Libraries who leads the 3D scanning effort. He is our customer too!
This view resonates with the Eastern Washington University archaeologists. Last autumn, Growshapes went to Easter Washington University to see how our customer 3D scans artifacts for archaeological research. You can see the video here.
3D scanning's strength is that it can create an accurate digital twin of the original objects in 3D and once digitized, it can be analyzed, manipulated and further processed.
Think about all the physical objects in the world that can be digitized in 3D!

This article is amazing at bringing awareness of 3D Scanning and its importance in very crucial situations. Personally, I love 3D Scanning for many of the projects and the contraptions which I create. Above all, what would you say is the most common use for 3D Scanning? Just something I'd like to know and you might know better.

As there are a variety of 3D scanners, some are used for archiving, the higher end models are used for reverse engineering and metrology. Also creators use them for digital art and design including jewelry. We would love to see people use it to enrich the metaverse.
