Summary

This paper seeks to compare the 3D modeling techniques of photogrammetry and structured light to create 3D models of propellers found on a variety of shipwrecks. Additionally, this project seeks to determine best practices for 3D printing in situ heritage on submerged archaeological sites, focusing particularly on structural elements. This project focuses on three main case studies: Montana at Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, and two shipwreck sites near the Outer Banks of North Carolina. 3D models of all of the propellers will be created using the techniques of both photogrammetry and structured light. Then, they will be 3D printed and assessed for accuracy. Additionally, the 3D printed models will be evaluated as an outreach tool for museum and educational purposes.
