3D Scan Egyptian Coffin

Egyptian Coffin 3D scan

The ABC 7:30 Report recently aired a story that involved WYSIWYG 3D Scanning who were commissioned to scan the remains in side of an ancient Egyptian coffin.

Watch the full TV story here:

When archeologists from Sydney University decided to lift the lid of an ancient Egyptian coffin they made a startling find. The coffin from the 6th century BC had been part of the
university’s collection for more than 150 years. This coffin was carved at the end of the Egyptian Empire more than two and a half thousand years ago but it’s what’s inside that’s intriguing modern-day archaeologists.

The remains inside the coffin we don’t know really anything about and so we’re about to start a really detailed project to scientifically investigate these remains in the coffin and asked a whole bunch of questions. Until last year no one realized that it was full of human remains as the coffin languished within the sandstone walls of Sydney University for
more than 150 years.

The latest modern technology is being used to try to solve this ancient mystery the first step is to laser image the coffin and its contents to create a high-resolution 3d model.

As Shane Rolton explained “We have an archival record of the current situation and configuration of every little piece in the coffin before it’s disturbed.”

It’s extremely rare that mummies are investigated like this as archeologists usually consider it unethical to disturb human remains but these artefacts are in desperate need of preservation. There’s months and maybe years of further analysis to try to definitively identify these remains and fully comprehend all of the bits of information. The next step is to sift through the remains and painstakingly record and review every piece of artefact.

At Proz3D Solutions we can help you with all your 3D scanning requirements even if it’s from ancient Egypt.

TCT ASIA – 3D Printing Trade Show

tct asia 2018

TCT Asia 2018 is the leading 3D printing trade show in the world. TCT Asia is in its fourth year and has quickly become one of Asia’s premier 3D technology events for the design, development and manufacturing communities.

Doug Baird was lucky enough to visit TCT and was wowed by the latest technology that has yet to hit the Australian and New Zealand shores. Many of the companies with newer technologies use TCT Asia to launch new products and introduce new printing materials.

“I found the latest technologies astounding and complex across a broad range industry applications. In medical and engineering the development is growing at a rapid rate whether its 3D printing machinery or 3D printing materials.

It was great to also catch up with our suppliers Farsoon and Prismlab.  Farsoon announced that Oerlikon has signed a long-term collaboration agreement with Farsoon Technologies to supply qualified AM metal powders for the Chinese firm’s additive manufacturing (AM) systems. Oerlikon will work with Farsoon to develop customised alloys for their AM systems in order to accelerate the adoption of AM in industries such as aerospace, power generation, tooling and automotive. Farsoon also revealed that they will be opening a subsidiary in Germany. Prismlab announced there were extended their partnerships in India.

Another interesting part of the exhibition was the list of speakers from various industries that went through updates and advances within their industry. 

It was an exciting exhibition and well worth the visit as it is part of our mission here at Proz3D solutions to keep Australia in the loop with the major advances happening across the globe in the 3D printing industry.”
