3D Printing an Archaeological Site Map: Photogrammetric Recording and Printing of the Pillar Dollar Wreck
Author(s): Anne E. Wright
During the 2016 East Carolina University field school at Biscayne National Park, photogrammetric data was collected to 3D print a sitemap using a ZCorp 3D printer. This printer is a resin-based printer that uses a 24-bit color pallet to print a full range of color. In addition to Photoscan, this process utilizes a free, open-source 3D rendering and animation software called Blender to perfect and render the model usable for 3D printing software. The sitemap was then 3D printed for use in the Biscayne National Park Visitors’ Center as an interpretive tool. The result is a highly realistic, miniature model of the shipwreck site. This presentation will discuss the process used to create and render the model, 3D print the sitemap, and the implications and uses of a physical, 3D sitemap.
