Open Access for 3D Objects

The Center for Digital Scholarship provides several services that are not only available to university faculty, staff and students but also to Indianapolis community and cultural heritage institutions. Our latest venture is the exploration of 3D digitization and how to make these collections openly available in an online environment. We have been experimenting with our new Creaform Go!Scan 3D scanners and have had the opportunity to work with some great partners over the past few months including: The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, Conner Prairie, Dance Kaleidoscope, and the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site. We are learning a lot as we begin to document workflows and establish strategies to scan irregular objects, such as a hood ornament, or a spinning wheel. We are new to the world of 3D technologies and are fortunate to collaborate with great faculty and students from the School of Informatics. Check back often as we begin to make these collections available online.

If you have objects that you are interested in scanning stop by the Center or make an appointment to talk us.

Here is a link to the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site landing page. Check out some of the objects that have been loaded in the collection.

Coming Soon!
