A UCM talk delivered by Christopher Weeks ACR, Manx National Heritage Collections Care and Conservation Manager.

How do we record important information about complex three-dimensional objects when we conserve or restore them? Drawing on examples from over thirty years of professional experience, Christopher will illustrate some of the challenges the historic yacht Peggy (1789) presents, and particular problems with respect to documentation due to its size, complexity and shape.

These factors will be discussed and possible solutions explored. Three-dimensional modelling, computer aided design (CAD), and Building Information Management (BIM) standards offer the prospect of novel solutions to the challenges of documenting such objects.

Join us on Zoom on 16th February, 6pm for this interesting discussion
