"3D Museum of Cossack Heritage" has purchased a Calibry scanner in order to make 3D models of Cossack household items. The heritage of the Cossacks from such regions as Terek, Kuban and Don will be digitized. As the project creators expect, new ways of displaying historical objects will increase the level of interest among schoolchildren. 3D scanning and virtual reality is expected to improve the perception and increase the involvement in the field of historical and cultural heritage.
The virtual collection of the museum is now being formed and will be completed by December 2021. Some of the 3D models can be already viewed on Sketchfab. Overall, the first 3D museum of the Cossack heritage plans to collect at least 100 3D-models.
