For MSc dissertation work three months of intensive study of Maya 3D digital visualization software was undertaken. Software programs Amira and Osirix were used to create bio-medical CT data visualizations of two 18th century obstetric dolls. This data was then brought into Freeform, where composite anatomically correct renderings were made of the neo-natal crania. In Maya/Mudbox all objects were UV mapped, digitally stencilled with photo reference of the original dolls and finally animated to create a public information digital exhibit of the dolls and their inner structures. The resulting animation (right) and materials garnered a distinction and have been taken into the RCPE’s online collection.
