Using the 3D digital modeling technology of cultural relics, accurately obtain the 3D information of their texture and size, establish 3D models of precious cultural relics, and effectively carry out digital protection for them.
3D digitization can provide important data support for the digital protection of precious cultural relics.
There are three major types of 3D models that 3D digitization of cultural relics normally outputs:
In this article, we will introduce the three types of 3D models respectively.
Case 1: 3D scan Yanxia Dong
3D scanning medium and large-sized carved artwork and objects with matte surfaces (the recommended scanning size should be larger than 50 cm, suitable when the requirements on color restoration and accuracy are relatively low.
Case 2: 3D scan ancient wall carvings
3D scanners: KSCAN-Magic, TrackScan 3D scanner series
Case 3: Yunnan Lufeng Dinosaur 3D Digital Protection
3D scan dinosaur fossil
Case 4: 3D Printing and Restoration of Root Carving
Case 5: 3D Derivative Production of Wulin Ancient Building
Field study → Partial scanning of buildings → Data processing (forward + reverse) → 3D printing
Case 6: 3D Rubbings of Ancient Epitaph
Case: 3D Scanned Model Helps Accurate Line Drawing
The true color 3D modeling method will be using iReal 3D mapping software.
Data acquisition hardware equipment:
The post-processing software mainly involves:
Whole Process of Porcelain Texture Mapping (Video Tutorial)
Necessary skills: 3D scanning, professional SLR photography, Adobe Photoshop
Model optimization software: Geomagic Wrap, ZBrush, 3DS Max, etc.
Texture mapping software: iReal 3D mapping software, Adobe Photoshop
Products, Solutions&Services Available:
1. 3D scanners and iReal 3D mapping software for sale
2. Value-added services for Scantech users: such as data post-processing, texture mapping services, assisting in solving large quantities/difficult parts processing, etc.
The optimal solution for high-precision 3D digitization of cultural relics:
Reverse modeling (mainly with handheld 3D laser scanners, supplemented by handheld speckle scanners) + 3D modeling/3D model optimization + SLR + texture mappings.
If there are many types of materials and sizes to be scanned, it is recommended that various tools (different types of 3D scanners) be flexibly matched to be the best solution.
