Today's technology allows us to
be able tocapture real
world items and produce exact copies. This
entails the use of powerful scanning tools which are
able to capture the 3D data of very many items.
Some of those are text from old books that hold some
beautiful images in 2D, here we can reconstruct the
flat image into 3D
are cheap it is the realisation of such ideas that can
be turned into profit, what other way to bring over an
idea than to have it there in 3D. Visualisation
to even a prototype. Vrml provides the perfect
medium to show a potential idea in 3D.
There are many applications for this technology all it
requires is people to see it and understand what it
BOOK OF KELLSItems of text and line drawings from the
book of Kells can be converted into 3D
Contemporary Artas with many other artefacts thus giving
a new dimension to some historic manuscripts.Spinthe object around and take a close look
at the item in greater detail by zooming closer and seeing
the work within.
INNOVATIONIn 2003 we put forward this as an example
of what we do in 3D to the Ideasfactory which we gather is
part of Channel 4. It was done to promote the uses of
vrml in visualisation planning. To our surprise the
original idea is used on the Channel 4 T.V. to great effect
and surpasses the original that we done. Sadly we
never were given any credit.
This item was made from an image in the Book of Kells
This was done as a demonstration of how to lift from books
data that can then be transferred into artefacts of various
composites. This then allows for one to build up a
piece of jewellery of different parts and create each piece
as individual as the next.
GENERAL PURPOSE MACHINE GUN (NATO)The
GPMG or "Jimpy"
is the U.K. Forces Light/Heavy Machine gun. This model
can be used to show the proper procedures in maintenance
i.e. How to strip and assemble in the correct way and
set gas regulator. Visualisations in 3D are probably
the next best thing to hands on Training. This
model has been de-activated!!
This model is
the capbadge of the finest Regiment in the Brigade of
Guards. The Scots Guards have the Freedom of the City
of Dundee bestowed upon them and hold this as a mark of
respect. We here were only too proud to create a
Screensaver for this fine Regiment who`s moto is NEMO
