Model Info

This model was created from 543 photographs captured during the summer of 2021. The team was granted 10 hours of exclusive access over the course of three days. The photographs were developed and edited using Adobe Lightroom then processed with Agisoft Metashape to generate a photogrammetric reconstruction. The 3D model was edited and decimated with ZBrush before texturing and export.

N.B. We are always tweaking and improving our models, so be sure to check back for updates.
