Abstract

3D models, objects and data are being used in an increasing number of scientific disciplines throughout different points in the research life cycle. In addition to architecture, civil engineering and mechanical engineering – disciplines that traditionally plan and construct in three-dimensional space – they are also used in the fields of electrical engineering and information technology, physics and astronomy as well as in the conservation of cultural heritage. The types of models used differ considerably in the different disciplines. In addition to CAD models, there are for example formats such as point clouds resulting from laser scans, which are used to capture buildings or landscapes. In addition, there are simulations in which the temporal dimension also plays a role. Furthermore printable 3D models that allow the direct generation of a physical object are increasingly being created. The study presented here takes a closer look at the diversity of 3D artefacts, the point of their creation in the research lifecycle as well as the purpose these artefacts serve.
