The 3D modeling and scanning station within the Digital Studio is available by reservation only during times when the Studio is staffed (9 am – 5 pm, M-F). It offers a space and appropriate equipment to ease the process of taking photos for the creation of 3D models. Members of the BC community are welcome to borrow equipment for use inside the Digital Studio (see below) or use their own camera or phone for the process.

The computer with Agisoft Metashape for processing the 3D model (Mac #18) may be reserved simultaneously if desired on the reservation form.
