3D scanning is common practice in scientific research, heritage preservation, online museums and more.
With multiple 3D scanning applications in both science and education, 3D technology has made it possible to interact with objects by creating a precise digital copy, allowing for more versatility and collaborative work like never before. Online museums created with 3D scanning technology provide heritage preservation for future generations to come, as well as bring down geographical boundaries, making culture more accessible to all.
3D scanning in research is a fast, accurate method for comparing shapes and 3D measurements, while also being very effective for recreating scenes in VR for immersive training.
Applications of 3D Technology in an Exhibition Setting
- Increased Exhibition Capacity Allow greater access to display items which, because of space limitations or protective reasons, cannot be on display by creating a “virtual exhibition”.
- Global Education. Give researchers and interested people from all over the world a way to study and experience items in 360° high definition, even if they cannot physically visit the exhibition themselves.
- Disability Access Vastly Improve the experience for the visually impaired by allowing them to physically handle and feel exact replicas of objects that are usually kept behind glass and are not accessible other than through sight
- Interactive Engagement for Children. Enhance exhibits for younger children and school groups by including precise replicas of some of the most popular items. Having the opportunity to hold and engage through the sense of touch, there is heightened level of involvement and understanding from the children.
