October Microproject: 2D-to-3D Modeler

Recently, museums around the world have been looking at ways to digitize their artwork and make it viewable through virtual or augmented reality. That’s because through the use of some sophisticated software, we can now make digital copies of famous paintings, sculptures and artifacts so that people can experience them from anywhere in the world without making an expensive trip to a museum. Some inventive new ideas are forming thanks to these technologies, like the Kremer Museum, a museum that has no physical location and is experienced entirely in VR! In this activity, you’ll explore the process of preparing an artwork for the virtual space by depicting a 2D artwork in 3D.

Your challenge is to make a 3D model representation of a 2D artwork!

Get Started!
