On Wednesday 26th August as part of our Anglo Sikh Virtual Museum, we’ll be digitally transporting a selection of historical Sikh weapons to the Leeds Royal Armouries Museum
This renowned museum cares for one of the most important national collections of arms and armour in the world and we are honoured that it’s playing host to the Anglo Sikh Virtual Museum.
Alongside our key partner Sikh Museum Initiative, Taran3D’s skilled designers have used immersive technologies to breathe life back into this unique collection of digitally regenerated relics for a whole new audience to enjoy.
Join us on Facebook at 6pm on 26th August to find out in real time how we developed this project – click here for full details and how to attend
On Tuesday 25th August, Taran3D & The Sikh Museum Initiative in partnership as the Anglo Sikh Virtual Museum are teaming up with The University of Leicester to host a special online webinar.
This event will showcase the creation of a new 3D model that we have expertly created of a rare Sikh manuscript that is held at the Special Collections in The David Wilson Library, University of Leicester.
The manuscript contains writings from the Sikh Scriptures and was presented to the University by Harry Hardy Peach in the 1920s after originally being found on the battlefield of Ferozeshah during the First Anglo Sikh War of 1845-1846.
We helped bring the manuscript back to life through our intricate 3D technology, allowing us to show the external binding in stunning detail. We hope that this will form the basis for making the entire contents of this important manuscript digitally revitalised for future audiences.
If you’d like to attend this FREE event you can sign up HERE . You will receive a link to the attend 24 hours before the event.
on 11th March 2020, we were able to facilitate VR experiences for the Nishkam Centre’s 2nd #InternationalWomensDay event.
A great day with inspirational #BAME women, celebrating achievements, sharing experiences and ideas and inspiring the next generation. It is also great to see BAME women with VR headsets, something I would like to see more of.
Starting off with inspirational speakers such as Deborah Moseley (Chair of Corporate Black Workers Support Group), Dr Arpinder Bansi (Owner of Kaur Values Associated), Barrister Zainab Bibi (Project Lead at Nishkam Centre), Jaskiran Kaur (PhD student speaking about Princess Sophia Duleep Singh, a UK Sikh Suffragette) and Manjit Kang (Real Estate Finance Manager & Co-Char for RBS Sikh Network). We then had the chance to participate in activities around Careers advice & confidence, Mental health & being mindful, as well as an inspiring session on Maharani Jind Kaur’s Jewellery with @taran3d
We were kindly invited to present at the #CanDoDigital youth training recruitment event at iCentrum, Innovation Birmingham by TinSmart Social, discussing our business journey into immersive VR and AR and our work for engineering and heritage applications. “Can do digital” is an awesome programme providing free digital skills training for young people aged 15-24 in Birmingham.
Taran3D attended the Hallgreen Secondary school Careers Fair yesterday. Answering questions about routes into emerging 3D and immersive technology industries. We discussed various roles from creative to technical development and we encouraged them to experiment and explore with freetools they can find online.
This two day workshop is designed for beginners with little or no previous experience of 3D modelling. You will learn the basics of drawing and 3D modelling in SketchUp and use it to create a 3D environment which we will then make interactive using the Unity3D game engine.
SketchUp is a simple to learn 3D modelling software that makes it easy to draw digital 3D objects and spaces. The programme is used for a wide range of 3D modelling applications including architectural design, woodworking, product design, game design, exhibition design and 3D printing. We will use SketchUp Free, which is the no cost version of SketchUp that runs online in a web browser.
In addition to SketchUp, you will also be introduced to the Unity3D game engine, which allows you to import and interact with 3D content in real-time. The Unity game engine has an intuitive workflow and allows you to create interactive environments that you can ‘walk’ around. The Unity Game engine is also free for personal and learning use.
Day One – Introduction to SketchUp
- How to draw and extrude shapes
- Measuring and inferencing along the correct axis
- Modifying 3D geometry – moving, rotating, deleting
- Building a space
Day two – Introduction to Unity3D Game Engine
- Basic navigation
- Importing and manipulating SketchUp models in Unity3D
- Creating interactive digital spaces and environments
