While the 3D RV did not make an official visit to Monticello, a visit to Virginia is not complete without visiting one of our nation's Founding Fathers. Plus, we knew that the facility was undergoing some significant renovation projects that 3D technology played a part.
Reality computing, as a term, is still not widely known, but when we visit sites and explain to people how they can capture reality with their smartphone or a regular digital camera -- for free, they are more than intrigued. We send them to 123Dapp.com, of course, so they can download their own smartphone app or desktop tool. Since I make my way around an object taking 40-50 photos at a time, it attracts attention and people want to know what we're doing. We're often in #3DRV t-shirts, and that makes it easy to approach us and ask what we're doing (at least we hope so).
Monticello is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and one that recently received a $10 Million donation to help restore important parts of Jefferson's Estate, including Mulberry Row. I "reality captured" the Jefferson statue as well as the log cabin. I wasn’t able to get a full 360 degree view of the stone chimney from the joiner’s shop that you can see here, but I wanted to get more photos of it, from different angles.
