Before the Trabant sculpture was scheduled to move away from Berlin, a 3D scan of the artwork became necessary on short notice. ArcTron3D was promptly on site and ready for 3D measurement.
The 3D as-built documentation of “Quo Vadis” was requested on short notice and completed within one long workday. The sculpture – a Trabant automobile with four human legs – was documented in very high resolution with a combination of aerial photogrammetry (UAV flyover), terrestrial photogrammetry, and 3D laser scanning.
The data was recorded in a high resolution, intended for the accurate digital documentation as well as potential later usage for 3D-printed replicas in various materials and scales.
The 3D data processing, including the integration of the different data sources, took only a few days, after which it was ready for use in a wide variety of replication processes.
