Objects in 3D
The Objects in 3D project has allowed us to display over 200 objects from Sheffield’s unique metalwork collection in 3D. Using state-of-the-art fast 3D scanning technologies, our partners at Sheffield Hallam University captured 3D images of objects ranging from Sheffield-made pewter to Sumatran ceremonial brass. Objects which aren’t normally displayed, or are too delicate for handling, can now be experienced ‘virtually’ from anywhere in the world. This pioneering project celebrates Sheffield’s unique place in the world history of metal-making. We hope you enjoy examining the models online.
