DBHG in North Wales with RCAHMW at Digital Past 2014 to Launch New AHRC 3D Printing Film

UK heritage professionals are gathering in north Wales (Llandudno to be precise) for the Royal Commission for Ancient and Historic Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW) annual event Digital Past 2014 (12-13 February 2014 – their banner is below). The Digital Building Heritage Group’s Dr. Douglas Cawthorne is giving a keynote presentation and on belhalf of the group and the AHRC is launching the new AHRC produced film of the DBHG’s AHRC funded 2013 Connected Community Heritage project at the event. The film focusses on the use of 3D printing for heritage applications and shows team members working with community heritage groups bringing 3D digital technologies to the understanding and presentation of historic buildings. Douglas will also be showing two completed Welsh projects; firstly the finished reconstruction of Pembroke Historic Royal Naval Dockyard and secondly laser scan fly-throughs of Court Farm in Pembrey, a late medieval manor house in south Wales. The opportunity to show the breadth of  digital reconstructive techniques that the DBHG can apply is always welcome as is showing how these capabilities of combining laser scanning, 3D digital modelling and 3D printing can be used for creating well connected virtual and physical heritage interpretation.
