Whithorn Priory 3D prints

Whithorn Priory holds an important collection of early medieval carved stones, which has been digitally documented in its entirety by HES Digital Documentation. 3D digital models of the objects had already been created using different methods such as structured-light scanning and SfM photogrammetry. Most of the models had also been 3D printed, except for 6. These were eventually printed in January 2016, thus completing a 3D printed collection of the Whithorn Priory carved stones in 1/10 scale.

The images below show the prints before and after the support material covering them had been cleaned off. One of the highlights of the collection is the Monreith Cross, one of the tallest stone crosses found in Galloway. The Whithorn Priory museum has an excellent online database of the carved stone collection, seen here.
