    This 3D modeling of artifacts just came out today! And allows for 3D viewing of a lot of UNC Chapel Hill's collection of native artifacts! It has many examples of the projectiles, pottery, and hardstone pieces found in North Carolina!

    That's just too cool! Imagine if we could show our finds on this site using that technology. I looked at a Kirk and Simpson on the site. Thanks for sharing the link!

      Apparently you can upload one per month for free on sketchfab, which is the cloud or parent site. As a member you can upload several per month, but looks expensive to join! I remember Mark Mullins paleo had about a dozen points on his website a few years ago with same 3D technology. I don't know what one would need as far as a camera with 3D. There is a virtual reality tour you can take that I bet requires some sort of technology I'll never have. I can barely use a cell phone myself!

    It is very cool that you can zoom in on the artifacts, and would be a great way to identify pottery pieces from NC. There are a ton of pots and pieces that have already been identified! Here's a better link to 3D section...
