3D scanning and printing have been the next big things for a long time. The value and utility of 3D scanning is going up as the cost and barriers to production are dropping.This conference will encourage cultural heritage professionals to understand and undertake 3D scanning and its challenges. Opportunities for creation, use, and re-use of 3D data will be explored and case studies of good practice presented. The day will consist of a programme of presentations, practical workshops and a panel discussion.

Participants at the conference will:

  • gain a better understanding of emerging trends in 3D scanning and data management
  • gain a better understanding of the standards associated with 3D scanning and their relation to core standards in digital preservation
  • gain a better understanding of the legalities and IPR
  • be introduced to case studies that demonstrate good practice in data sharing and re-use

Who would benefit?

  • Archivists,
