3D Smithsonian object

Organisation Smithsonian Institution

This 3D object from Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, is an example of what you can achieve with digitisation. Created by a small team of technologists, the aim of the project is to increase and diffuse knowledge through the use of “three-dimensional scanning technology, analysis tools, and our distribution platform.”

You’ll need an up-to-date internet browser to view the model in 3D, but the site includes background to the work of the team and a six minute long video.
