Object Scanning

Object scanning, 3D documentation of museum pieces  cultural goods and industrial components, high-resolution surface survey, photo-realistic 3D models…

We deploy the structured light scanning system “QT Sculptor PT-M” for recording small, detailed objects or as an addition to 3D laser scans.

This systems produces an accuracy of 1/10 to 1/100 mm for 3D recordings. From its results, high-resolution, photorealistic 3D models can be computed without difficulty. These models can used in several applications:

  • digitization and damage mapping on 3D models
  • reproductions, e.g. 3D print or CNC-model
  • 3D visualizations and multimedia applications
  • target-performance comparison to reference models
  • highly accurate digital as-built documentation

3D Digitization of Museum Pieces

High-resolution 3D digitization is particularly suitable for the following objects:

  • archaeological finds and artefacts
  • sculpture, statues or figures
  • structural or archaeological ornamentation
  • Rapid Prototyping applications
  • very small objects

3D scans of museum pieces are often the basis for planning restoration or replication.

Procedure – quick and mobile

There is great demand for a cost-effective and high-resolution 3D digitization method for museum pieces. Geometry and surface texture are the most important aspects of 3D data acquisition. The digital 3D model can then be for further processed for multimedia projects such as animations or museum applications, as well as for replication. The delivery takes place in the usual standard formats.

For particularly valuable pieces, object surveying is carried out on site at the customer’s location. We transport our equipment in a few flight cases and can be set up in a short amount of time. Alternatively, figures, finds or objects of any kind can also be sent to our 3D inventory. The surveying usually takes place in combination with several surveying methods – e.g. object scanning and photogrammetry. All this combined data is then fused during the data processing; the result is a high-resolution, digital 3D model.

Ablauf Die Nachfrage einer kostengünstigen und hochauflösenden 3D-Digitalisierungsmethode von Museumsobjekten ist groß. Dabei stehen bei der 3D-Erfassung die Geometrie und die Oberflächentextur im Vordergrund. Das digitale 3D-Modell kann folglich zur Weiterverarbeitung in multimediale Präsentationsprojekte wie Animationen oder Museumsanwendungen, wie auch für eine Replikerstellung verwendet werden. Die Lieferung erfolgt in den üblichen Standartformaten. Schnell und mobil Eine Objektvermessung wird bei kostbaren Objekten beim Kunden vor Ort durchgeführt. Unser Equipment wird in wenigen Flight-cases mitgeführt und ist in kurzer Zeit aufgebaut. Alternativ können uns Figuren, Fundstücke oder Objekte jeglicher Art für die 3D-Bestandsaufnahme auch zugesandt werden. Die Vermessung erfolgt meist in Kombination mehrerer Vermessungsmethoden – zB dem Objektscanning und der Photgrammetrie. In der Datenprozessierung werden diese Daten fusioniert. So entsteht ein hochaufgelöstes, digitales 3D-Modell.
