3D Imaging Technology as it Applies to Historical Documentation, Preservation and Education
In the winter of 2012, the Tall Ship ELISSA was put into dry dock in Texas City to makes repairs to her hull that were sustained in Hurricane Ike. Being in dry dock afforded the perfect opportunity for SmartGeoMetrics to conduct a 3D historical documentation of the as-is conditions of the hull while at the same time working with the Galveston Historical Foundation to explore ways to use this data in the creation of educational resources. Plans are now in place to document all spaces in the ship to allow for virtual access via on-shore kiosks as well as through the Internet.

BIM CAVE: Immersive Visualization (Building Information Modeling Computer-Aided Virtual Environment)

In a darkened room on the fourth floor of Texas A&M’s Langford Architecture Center, construction science students using Building Information Modeling software can navigate through the bowels of a virtual building while visually immersed amid an array of 12 46 inch monitors.

Unveiled at an Oct. 10 2012 ribbon cutting event, the TAMU Department of Construction Science's newest facility, the “BIM-CAVE,” provides a unique high-tech vantage point for viewing details of an imagined building and its infrastructure, including heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, plumbing, electrical and other systems. “BIM CAVE” is an acronym for “Building Information Modeling Computer-Aided Virtual Environment.”

Copyrights, Ethics and Responsibilities of 3D
Copyrights are important to all artists. Creating artwork is how artists make their living. When copyrights are infringed upon, the livelihood of the artist is at stake. Working with 3D art artists enter a digital world where their work can be copied and sent around the world with a push of a button. There are advantages to this digital process, but there are liabilities.

With the ability to use the digital images of others, 3D scanning real objects and 3D printing or CNC milling to reproduce images, how can an artist be sure that they are not infringing on another person’s copyrights and how can they protect their own artwork?

Along with the Intellectual property discussion of Copyrights Bridgette will begin a dialogue about the responsibilities and ethics of 3D technology as it relates to such things as Bio printing and regenerative medicine, the 3D printing of guns and the changes in the digital world we live in.
