Current Research: 3D Scanning of Obsidian Bifaces

February 18, 2016.
Madelyn Green, graduate student of The Ohio State University, has written a guest post on the Ohio History Connection's Archaeology Blog about her work in 3D scanning large obsidian bifaces from the Hopewell Mound Group with the Ohio History Connection.

" By combining infrared lasers, two-dimensional cameras, and point-recognition software (similar, though more refined than the probe system software), designers have constructed a machine that can independently capture and construct a 3D image of real-life objects. The process of building the 3D image has become relatively straightforward for the user, as most of the coding designed by the software programmers enable to machine to scan and collects the data points from the object without user interference."
