Any application of three-dimensional computer graphics in the Cultural Heritage (CH) field requires availability of a digital model of the artifact(s) treated. Detailed and accurate digital 3D models can be produced with 3D scanning devices, which allow conversion of reality into digital form in a cost and time-effective manner. We present the capabilities of this technology and the main issues which are preventing its wider use in contemporary applications, highlighting some open problems and…

3D Laser Scanners: History, Applications, and Future
TLDR
A 3D scanner is a device that analyses a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (e.g. colour), which can be used to construct digital three-dimensional models.
Multiscale acquisition and presentation of very large artifacts: The case of portalada
TLDR
A project aimed at virtually reconstructing the impressive portal of the Ripoll Monastery, Spain, using triangulation laser scanning technology, producing a dataset of 2212 range maps for a total of more than 1 billion triangles.
Digital sculpting for historical representation: Neville tomb case study
TLDR
The intention of this paper is to show how such tools and methodologies together with existing scanned data and some historical knowledge can remediate and re-imagine lost sculptural form in the tomb of Sir John Neville, 3rd Baron Raby located at Durham Cathedral.
3D modeling of complex and detailed cultural heritage using multi-resolution data
TLDR
The interdisciplinary project of the virtualization of the Great Inscription of Gortyna, Crete, for 3D documentation, structural studies, and physical replica purposes and the derived 3D model of the heritage is now the basis for further archaeological studies on the incision techniques and a deeper structural analysis on the monument.
3D Printing of Preclinical X-ray Computed Tomographic Data Sets
TLDR
Here, a detailed method for printing plastic models of bone and organ structures derived from X-ray CT scans utilizing an Albira X-Ray CT system in conjunction with PMOD, ImageJ, Meshlab, Netfabb, and ReplicatorG software packages is provided.
Shape-from-Shifting: Uncalibrated Photometric Stereo with a Mobile Device
TLDR
The mobile shape-from-shifting (SfS) technique can be used "in the wild" so that 3D scans may be performed in their natural environment, eliminating the need for transport to a laboratory setting and providing a userfriendly and cost-effective solution for 3D surface scanning.
Towards a 3D Visualization Interface for Cultural Landscapes and Heritage Information
The creation of realistic virtual environments of (almost) completely disappeared historical landscapes is a problematic matter. This is due to three reasons: data imperfection in historical sources,
