Untitled. The British Museum Creates 3D Models of the Rosetta Stone & 200+ Other Historic Artifacts: Download or View in Virtual Reality. A quick fyi: Back in 2015, The British Museum gave the world online access to the Rosetta Stone, along with 4,700 other artifacts in the great London museum.

But that access was only in 2D. Now they've upped the ante and published a 3D model of the Rosetta Stone and 200+ other essential items in the museum's collections. 3D Scans of 7,500 Famous Sculptures, Statues & Artworks: Download & 3D Print Rodin's Thinker, Michelangelo's David & More. Last week we featured the British Museum's archive of downloadable 3D models of over 200 richly historical objects in their collection, perhaps most notably the Rosetta Stone.

But back in 2015, before that mighty cultural institution put online in 3D the most important linguistic artifact of them all, a project called Scan the World created a model of it during an unofficial community "scanathon," and it remains freely available to all who would, for example, like to 3D print a Rosetta Stone of their very own. Or perhaps you'd prefer to run off your own copy of a world-famous sculpture like ancient Egyptian court sculptor Thutmose's bust of Nefertiti or Auguste Rodin's The Thinker, both of whose 3D models you can find on Scan the World's archive at My Mini Factory.

Scan The World. Back A World of Fragile Parts, La Biennale di Venezia In ‘A World of Fragile Parts’, La Biennale di Venezia and the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) explore the threats facing the preservation of global heritage sites and how the production of copies can aid in the preservation of cultural artifacts.

Scan The World

Ecological uncertainty, violent attacks, and the increasing demands of tourism are just a few of the factors putting global heritage sites and cultural artifacts at risk of destruction and loss. Copies and scans have emerged as a way of mitigating risk by providing valuable records of culture, and offering alternatives for a demanding public who want to experience historical sites and objects first-hand.

Weird reflection

Only what is visible on the screen can actually be reflected. Reflections. This example shows off the real-time reflection capabilities of Unreal Engine 4.


The scene shows a rundown subway terminal with a lot of water leaks, grimy ceramic tiles, dilapidated pipe work, and other worn-out environment details. In this document, we will give a high-level rundown of the techniques employed and the features involved in bringing the effect together. The following image shows the reflections in this scene blending on and off to demonstrate their effect. Reflection Environment The Reflection Environment works by capturing the static level at many points and reprojecting it onto simple shapes like spheres in reflections. Reflection Environment. The Reflection Environment feature provides efficient glossy reflections in every area of the level.

Reflection Environment

Many important materials like metals rely on having reflections in all directions, which the Reflection Environment provides. It is targeted toward consoles and mid spec PC, so it must run very fast. Support for reflections of dynamic objects or sharp reflections is supported but will require addational memory overhead. Quick Reflection Environment Setup To quickly get the Reflection Environment working in your project's levels, you will need to do the following: SIMPLYGON INTRODUCES FREE INDIE LICENSE AND SHIPS WITH UE4 INSTALLER. We’ve all heard the phrase, “When you love something, set it free.”


We think that the time has come for us to embrace the idea and today we can proudly announce that we are finally releasing Simplygon for free to the Unreal Engine community. With our background in games, and seeing how game technology is now adopted across industries like architecture, automotive, aerospace and VFX, we are thrilled that so many people are picking up UE4 and using it both for games and other development. 3D scanning, Blender and Unreal Engine 4! 3D scanning for free! 3D scanning for free! 3D scanning, Blender and Unreal Engine 4!
