Archaeology team makes 3D scan of Fort Stanwix artifact

Archaeology team makes 3D scan of Fort Stanwix artifact | 3D Engineering | Scoop.it
OME — In an effort to digitize and preserve the only remaining original part of the Fort Stanwix National Monument, Ithaca College professor Michael Rogers and his team recently came to Rome to 3D scan the hearth. Rogers was joined by Ithaca College alumni Ryan Bouricius and student Lexi Farrington, who used two hand-held 3D scanning devices to fully digitize the hearth. “If anything were to happen to the artifact or structure, we can use our data to help do a repair,” Rogers said. “We can make the scans available online so folks can look at these artifacts in a three-dimensional way. So you can rotate it, spin it, zoom in on it, look at different details through your own web browser.” According to the National Parks Service, the hearth was excavated during the reconstruction of the fort and has been on display for visitors since it opened in 1976. It’s the only original piece of the fort that is left in place. “Forty-two years on exhibit has led to the deterioration of the feature and these high-resolution scans capture intricate details about the hearth’s current condition,” said Keith Routley, chief of Cultural Resources at Fort Stanwix, in a news release about the project. “This information can be used to help the NPS make decisions regarding long-term preservation.” Those who cannot make it to the fort to see the hearth in person eventually will be able to go online and see it. Rogers said it will allow people to see what the hearth looks like all the way around, instead of the portion they can see at the fort. ″(The scanner) generates what’s called a point cloud using an XYZ positional reading,” he said. “So when you put all those readings together, you have what we like to refer to as a three-dimensional image. ... For example, the hearth at Fort Stanwix, we took readings about every tenth of a millimeter, so very fine, close together readings. When we do buildings, we take readings about every 5 millimeters.” Bouricius said it’s usually easy to have one person operate the scanner and the computer, but because of the small space, he and Farrington had to split the work and be careful. “This particular scanner has constraints on how far away it has to be from the structure that you’re scanning,” Bouricius said. “To use it properly, you have to also be able to see what’s on the computer screen, as well as the object that you’re scanning, because the display on the computer gives you feedback, like how you might want to adjust the scanner in relation to the object itself. Because of the tight quarters where we were working, Lexi had to focus on looking at the object and holding the scanner and not getting too close or bumping anything, so that means I had to be at the computer and give her active feedback as to when she was too close or too far away, in order to get reliable readings all the way around.” Rogers is a physicist and archaeologist who uses the technology to record historic buildings, search for archaeological features without excavation, and 3D print buildings, according to the parks service. Rogers and his students spent two years using the same technology to scan Trim Castle in Ireland. He said he also has scanned a number of historic homes and forts around Central New York. Rogers said digitizing these pieces before they get damaged or completely ruined is important because it can help with preservation and reconstruction and it also provides access to everyone. “A lot of the work we do is to make things more accessible to people,” he said. “There’s a whole historic site (Trim Castle) that somebody might be interested in viewing that can’t go in this building at all because they don’t have elevators and modern accessibility features. ... Most historic homes or some of these historic features are not viewable to the public. If you were to visit a historic house, you get to visit some parts of the house and not others. Most of the time it’s for safety reasons, so doing laser scanning can make those available.”
