Digitization of Art and Heritage

Scanning 3D objects is relatively new within the 3D industry. By means of 3D scanning, 3D models can be made of existing objects, spaces and people. This is in particular a valuable technology for (historical) art objects and structures. But also think of personal mementos, such as the first shoes of your child, or the baby room, your old house. Or do you have a restaurant and do you want to display your special, beautifully presented, dishes in 3D or VR on your website?

I work with photogrammetry, where i take photographs with a DSLR camera. I realize an even, and – if circumstances allow it – cross-polarized, lighting, so that the models look perfect from every angle. In my model optimization workflow i ensure a clean geometry and excellent textures, which ensures:

  • a closed mesh (this is mandatory for 3d printing);
  • excellent performance, even for use in highly demanding 3d environments like VR;
  • photorealistic visual behavior, in both real-time and raytracing based 3d, through a PBR (Physically Based Rendering) workflow.

 

Visualizing spaces

Not everything needs to be 3D scanned. If you want to see objects in a specific (existing) room, then the room can be made/reconstructed in 3D by use of 3d modeling. Consider the spatial limitations that museums often have for their objects; in this way they can offer objects that they can not exhibit to the public, and in the space where they would prefer to place them!
