There are many ways of using 3D heritage models, and not only in the fields of history or archaeology. Any of the models in the Giravolt programme are available for educational use, for classroom teaching (is there a beter way to see a Gothic cathedral or Romanesque sculpture?), or to be used in creative works or research.

As part of the programme, we hold pilot schemes with various educational institutions to promote the use of 3D models. If you have an idea in mind, please contact us. We would like to invite you to experiment by accessing: patrimoni.gencat gallery so you can start to imagine how to incorporate them into your work.
We would like to mention the project undertaken by the Minyons d’Urgell school, ‘Fondarella, flora and fauna', which was submitted for the prizes awarded by mSchools and the Generalitat de Catalunya's Department of Education for the best projects on the Mobile History Map platform. They won in the primary school category for their excursion around Fondarella which included photos, texts, audio, video, and 3D models. You can find other examples from British science museums, which also uses 3D models as teaching material.
And if you would like to create and publish 3D models yourself, just consult the teaching guide from #despertaelpatrimoni.
If your centre has a 3D printer, you can download the models and prepare them for printing. Our chameleon is a good place to start.
The license for the models included in the Giravolt programme is Creative Commons Attribution, which is to say that you can use them as you wish, the only proviso being that you acknowledge their origin. Can I modify them? Yes. Can I republish them? Yes. Can I include them in a research work? Yes.

You can follow the programme's progress on social networks with this hashtag, #Giravolt3D, or by subscribing to patrimoni.gencat's professional newsletter.
