3D Digitization Project, round two

It’s been some time since we updated you on Jeremiah’s 3D digitization project. It’s been through one round of prototype and testing, and now it’s in a second phase. We thought we’d talk about where we are and show off … Continue reading

3D Digitization Project: testing phase

Our Digitization Manager, Jeremiah, has been working on a pretty exciting project, and we thought we’d share some pictures from the testing phase. Late last year, we got a grant from UA Libraries to develop a digitizing process for relief objects, including an inexpensive … Continue reading

3D Digitization Project: testing phase (continued)

Last week, we told you about a test of our Digitization Manager’s relief digitization process, under development thanks to a UA Libraries’ Innovation Grant. The project: a process to capture relief data using (1) a regular mounted digital camera setup, (2) a piece of … Continue reading

Adventures in 3D printing

Our Digitization Manager, Jeremiah, has been working on a local grant to develop a way to capture relief data from otherwise mostly flat materials like embossed paper, wax seals on envelopes, and the surface of coins. The project is currently … Continue reading

More adventures in 3D printing

We wanted to share an update on our ongoing 3D printing adventures. Good news Here’s the smaller part I mentioned before, the one that came out perfectly using PLA at 15% fill on the printer we’ve been working with all … Continue reading
