3D Roman ring.

Post by Twit » Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:01 am

Well after several hours of tinkering I finally managed a half presentable result for a 3D image, not a full 360 as I still have to figure that out.

This is a late Roman ring found on the continent, on a mountainous foot/bike path, wearing a patriarchal cross and the inscription S.I. , which if I have studied right stands for Jesus Saviour. The two outer marks may be decoration, or also they are local pre-Roman script.

I won't go into the trials of getting a finished image, another post for that sometime I think.

With permission of mdf I will also include a real picture drawn by my late relative Carl, someone who always sought, and accepted, the light.
From http://www.carlhaywood.co.uk/

God speed Carl.

Great effort, that man ::g

I really like this 3D imaging and when I get the time I hope to have a crack at it meself.

Hello 'Twit' Your 3D efforts have certainly been rewarded ::g I suspect the process is not without a degree of frustration! Well done.
Regarding the drawing, It's plainly evident that your relation Carl, was a man of considerable ability and it shows in the lighting qualities of the drawing. A rather special man with a special talent.
Thank you for sharing both subjects of your post ::g Regards ss48

Brilliant attempt Twit ::g
I found that there's a certain amount of elation when each stage is completed and you can see that the result may be half decent.
It just shows that the 3D technology is achievable by those that stick with it ;)

The work by Carl is lovely and look forward to the completion of the website.

That's pretty good going, next time you should nail it (I don't mean drive a nail through it...lol)

Impressive, you seem to have got the hang of it ::g ::g

A bit overwhelmed by all your replies, and I don't know where to start replying to them but to say thank you .


What I will do soon is post a write up on my little adventure into 3D so anyone can get some idea of what awaits them, add a few tips to what Paul has posted previously, and add a few links. Even though 3dflow software is set up to be very user friendly, it is a bit inevitable that people reach a point where they deal with technicalities of one kind or another. In not too distant future I think it will be made very easy, Windows PC delayed launch of their product, Sony has a house version for their top phones I think, there are applications on Android trying to get there, and a few serious phone projects underway that are designed to use a comparatively cheap added hardware to achieve high level near automatic results.

I did find a near identical ring on the web, pictured half way down

http://sibulquez.blogspot.in/2013/12/an ... smo-y.html

which is quite an interesting article. As only Boandtia is likely to be able to read it in Spanish here is a translated version

https://translate.google.com/translate? ... smo-y.html

The only difference is his ring is a P not I ( and I have tried every way to check my I is not a P... still says it is an I) .

Thanks and again , and now to rummage for the next object to be subjected to my 3D learning experience.
