Preserving The Past

The limitations faced by historians, archeologists and geologists, are derived from a dependency on available artifacts as primary evidence for telling our past. In many cases, scholars find pieces intact but a whole slew of others remain in a fragmented state. Rebuilding and maintaining these priceless pieces of our natural history is of paramount importance. With technology on their side, scholars are now able to maximize these fragments of our past and reconstruct precious historical narratives using software like ZBrush. Joakim Engel is a Creative Developer at the Natural History Museum of Denmark and member of the Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen. He is embracing ZBrush as a tool in the pursuit of this exploration. Joakim explores this new age approach to understanding history in his thesis, “3D Applications in Museological Context”. You can read more about how ZBrush is used in industry on our dedicated User Stories page.

Dr Phillip Manning is one of the worlds leading paleontologists specializing in dinosaur anatomy using scar patterns on fossils to asses and calculate muscle attachment etc. Phil and his team use sophisticated tech to calculate muscle mass and weight and the images Peter Minister shows in his thread at ZBC are the early results. The model will be used in printed publications along with some animation for a sequence in a national geographic produced documentary.
