EG 2011 Welsh Dragon
||The Red Dragon, Y Ddraig
Goch, is the famous emblem of Wales and appears on
the national flag. On the occasion of the first ever visit of the
Eurographics conference to this country we are pleased to release this
high resolution 3D mesh of the Welsh Dragon into the public
domain for use in your research. Our hope is that you will use
this model during the conference to help demonstrate you latest
research ideas. If used in any publications, please acknowledge "The Welsh Dragon mesh model was released
by Bangor University, UK, for Eurographics 2011".
The Welsh Dragon is the cousin of the Phlegmatic
Dragon, that was released to the community at EG 2007 in Prague.
|The original model (right) was scanned using a Perception V5
Laser scanner mounted in an Infinite Portable Mearsuring Arm. This
The scanning was carried out by CAM
Innovation Centre, at Coleg Menai, in Bangor Wales.
- Rotation of the scanning arm through seven principal axes
allowing access to difficult-to-reach details.
- Data cloud cloud collection at 458,000 points per second.
- Laser bandwidth of 150mm.
- Acuracy of +/- 0.024mm.
The point cloud has been transformed into the STL File
and the Stanford Polygon File format for your convenience.
The mesh contains:
- 1,105,352 vertices
- 2,210,673 faces
We would like to thank Gareth Hughes, David Robinson and Dyfan Searell
of CAM for their hard work in scanning the Welsh Dragon.
