Battle of Actium, Ionian Sea, Greece, 31BC

Task: Document a wall monument that contains sockets where bronze ship rams were once inserted, so that researchers can reverse engineer what these rams once looked  like and configure the size and shape of the ships that they were attached to in an effort  to revisit  a significant historical battle.

 

Challenge: Integrating data from multiple scanners (short and mid range), creating CAD and 3D  virtual models

Solution: Utilize close and mid range 3D laser scanners (Minolta 9i and FARO LS880) along with imagery capture and high resolution photography including panoramic images, model in Geomagic, produce files suitable for cutting with a CNC Router, or reducible for smaller scale applications to a 3D printer

 

Collaboration: The Actium War Monument Projecthas been conducted in collaboration with Dr. William Murray, The Mary and Gus Stathis Endowed Professor of Greek History, Department of History,University of South Florida
