3D documentation and visualization of Cultural Heritage and Arts objects is an expanding application area. The selection of the right technology for these kinds of applications is very important and strictly related to the project requirements, budget and user’s experience. In this contribution, we report our experience in the 3D digitization of three(More)
As assyriologists have to handle tremendous amounts of important documents of ancient history written in cuneiform script, like the epic of Gilgamesh, we are developing an efficent system to support their daily tasks. Previous projects demonstrated the application of holography and early close-range 3D scanners for this task. Based on experiences from our(More)
The demands of state-of-the art documentation and analysis of our cultural heritage motivated us for interdisciplinary cooperation between various countries and institutions. This includes a wide range of possible partners, which are a company supplying us with adapted hardware and software for Cultural Heritage; archaeologists working in the field as well(More)
This paper presents the results of a study in which a close-range structured light system is used for the digitization of a cultural heritage object. A Herakles statue, named “Weary Herakles” and located in the Antalya Museum, Turkey was scanned by a Breuckmann optoTOP-HE system. The work comprises the essential steps of the 3D object modeling pipeline,(More)
The Polo Museale Fiorentino (the authority in charge for the management and conservation for all public museums in Florence, Italy) has started an investigation and monitoring project over the small fractures on the lower part of the Michelangelo's David. The presence of this series of small fractures is known since several decades and they have been(More)
Paintings are typically considered as more or less flat objects with color as the most relevant information. Therefore, they are mainly documented with conventional 2D techniques, which cannot record the 3D relief. However, there are many paintings, especially those with a 3D relief in the mm range, where this relief is an important feature ·(More)
