Shining 3D, the manufacturer of the EinScan-Pro Handheld Scanner and the ES360 Desktop 3D Scanner, is on a mission to capture the world’s museum treasures as 3D scans.
They have asked their current EinScan-Pro customers, as well as 3D scanning experts, artists, and museum personnel, to submit 3D scans either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via Sketchfab (tag #EinScan-Pro or #SWART). Shining 3D will be granting awards to their favorite submissions.
Don’t have a scanner? Shining 3D will loan a limited number of their scanners to qualifying individuals. To apply, send your name, organization name, position, email, and scanning project details to email@example.com.
For examples of projects, and additional information, go to Save the World ART.
Here’s what Shining 3D has to say about their project:
Only a small part of museum objects are on public display at any one time, and then, they’re normally only described by a small wall label in storage. People who look after large collections of historical artifacts often don’t have the onsite floor space to publicly display even a fraction of these objects.
So, let’s 3D scan it, save it, making the museum collections tangibly and creatively, let more people feel the art, to learn its history and story through printing and sharing.
Here are examples of some projects that have been submitted:
