Welcome to the logbook of the research project Augmenting Prototypes: Smart Replicas. This project is a part of half year bachelor program “Advanced prototyping” in TU Delft.
Smart Replicas is the result of a
collaboration between Archaeological department Amsterdam and design
studio Maaike Roozenburg. The latter supervises 4 students preparing
material for this blog: Kotryna Val (Architecture), Sander Pliakis (Industrial Design), Jorinde Smitser (Industrial Design), Irene(Industrial Design).
The focus of the project is the usage
of CT scans to recreate and analyse repaired and/or unusable
archaeological findings of everyday use.The aim of this is to replicate
and improve given objects, while not losing the historical footprint. In
other words, the blog will revolve on modern techniques of digital and
The simplified planning will follow the scheme provided below. Each
set of steps will be described in a weekly report, which will
complimented with an occasional review of the field.
