a Virtual 3D Reconstruction and Interactive Visualisation

Previously for www.cadcam.co.uk (an independent CATIA consultancy) and www.SUperPlan.info (automated construction planning) this website is now dedicated to my current long-term Kenilworth Castle project.

Kenilworth Castle in 1575

An initial curiosity as to the extent of the medieval mere has been expanded, over several years, to include a detailed reconstruction of all of the castle structures, and 6 square km of surrounding (LIDAR based) terrain.   The model data has been imported into the Unity game engine to provide a fully interactive 3D virtual experience.   A guided tour, a quiz, and various historical activities and animated features have been incorporated to enhance the educational content.   This project remains a work in progress.

This 7½ minute video montage illustrates just some of the features...

 In anticipation of advanced academic study, 3 provisional researched articles were generated...

  • Creating and Evaluating a 3D Virtual Reconstruction of a Castle as an Educational Asset – A Search for Advice.

  • A Qualitative Evaluation for Heritage Site 3D Virtual Reconstruction Features.

  • The Virtual 3D Reconstruction of a Medieval Castle – How far can basic research and logic take you?
