A unique exhibition showcasing innovations in 3D technology and their applications within museums will be on display for one night only at The University of Queensland.

The Real to Relic: Museums in 3D exhibit at UQ’s Anthropology Museum has been curated by postgraduate students with the exhibition allowing visitors to explore virtual artefacts on screen and watch 3D printers in action.

Experts from UQ’s School of Earth Sciences, and 3D technologists from Phoenix Finery will be on hand to speak about the displays.

The exhibition will include presentations by UQ’s Dr Graeme Were, and The Queensland Museum’s Dr Scott Hocknull, who are experts in 3D technology applications in museums.

UQ Museum Studies student and co-curator, Beth Hinds says the event will look at the role of 3D technology in museums and aims to show the exciting possibilities of 3D modelling and printing.
