3D Image of the Roman Trumpet Brooch From Last Sunday

Post by Fisher1266X » Sat Feb 10, 2018 1:03 pm

I don't know why, but trying to capture a fibula in 3D is hard work, but I suspect it's because I hadn't had one of the myriad of permutations of the correct settings used! rl;

Please remember, apart from being able to spin it around, you can also zoom-in on it too!
Also, using the arrow button (bottom right-hand corner of the image window) you can make it full screen :D

I love the 3D of that. It’s a beautiful brooch. I would you to see some of my better finds in 3D, must try and learn how to do it!

Stunning !!
It`s like the museum coming to your home, except you can see the artifact from all angles and even magnify.
Also thanks for the additional tips about zoom and full screen.
Well Found and Thanks for the 3D enhancement.

Really like all your 3D work, shows the finds beautifully. Keep up the great work. ::g
I think this is the way forward. I do love looking at other people's finds photo's, but viewing them in 3D is almost like having the artefact in your hand.

::g Great Brooch and really cool presentation Paul ...

Is it hard to learn ?
Does it take loads of photographs to build the 3D image ?

;) Do you do lessons ? ;)

Hi Sunray, thanks on both counts ::g

I wouldn't say it's hard to learn, more like having a camera, tripod, turntable, even lighting, a half-decent computer and the free software.

The software I use only allows a maximum of 50 images, the paid-for version allows 500 images.
I've gotten away with using only 30+ images :D

The software I use is Zephyr 3D https://www.3dflow.net/3df-zephyr-free/ and the there are several tutorials on their website and Facebook page.

Other software packages are available too.

Thanks again for the comments and please feel free to ask about creating 3D images (photogrammetry) and I'll try and help.

Best
Paul

Great work as usual, Paul. It really does bring a terrific item to life and if that's been done using only 30 images, you can only wonder what 500 would do!

Brilliant imagery, I need to get off my backside and learn how to do this.

Brilliant. I need to learn how to do this too.

If you suspend it (with cotton or something), would you get the whole thing? Assuming the missing bit is where it was sat on something.

Hi Jon,

Sorry it's taken a while to get back to you!

I tried the suspension method but the object has to be absolutely stationary on the turntable.
If the something moves on the object such as the pin on the Roman brooch or the brooch itself tilts over to a different angle whilst the turntable is revolving, the software will pick this up and confuse it or at best, you will have two pins lol!! =))

Another way to do it is attach the object to a rod so that you can photograph it from various angles.
Also, if you have the paid-for version, you can photograph one side then photograph the other side and merge the two projects.

I may have to invest in the paid-for version 8-|
