Today in our blog we start a new series of articles with sculptures that we have scanned in 3D. With this initiative we want to continue sharing from Moøkan our work, especially in the field of cultural dissemination. Thanks to the agreement with some of our clients we will share some of the sculptures of their private collections giving public access to them in a digital environment.
We have chosen to start, the most contemporary of this series. A complete body of sculptor and architect Juan Bordes, A 46 cm piece in bronze lacquered in white.
In Moøkan we have joined the Snaptank, this 3D scan community, to commercialize our photogrammetry models in a high quality version for professional use. We took the decision after being asked by some users about the original or more detailed version of the models we freely share in Sketchfab.
We hope you find these high definition models useful and we will be glad to hear your comments.
We start with the following two models:
The sculpture collection we have used at the Virtual hall project comes from Sketchfab. All of them have been modified and optimized by our team to ensure a fluent simulation and the best quality. We would like to mention the original authors according to the Creative Commom license that they use to share their models and thanks their generosity.
The sculptures come in a big variety of qualities, usually between 50 000 and 200 000 polygons. our Team have optimized them to 15 000 polygons the small models and 30 000 the big or complex ones. To do it the process have three phases: Correction of original models, Reparametrizations and polycount reduction, Detail textures baking.
We love Sketchfab, and we would like to share it with you. Sketchfab is a website to share 3D models as we share video in Youtube or Vimeo. It is a light 3D engine on the web that is perfect to show 3D models and sites. It is a fantastic tool for artists and it is becoming popular also for museums, to share their collections with all the world. Some models can be downloaded to share the 3D files, so other artists can use them for their own creations.
