today I will post a series of tests of a project that I started, which concerns the archiving of signatures on sculptures. There are repositories of this type but they are images (therefore two-dimensional) of the signatures on works of art. In the field of sculpture, even the signatures are characterized by a three-dimensional morphology. I came up with the idea of recording the image and the 3D characteristics in high resolution. With these 3D scans, it will be possible, for example, to compare them with other signatures of the same artist, helping to identify the autographed ones rather than the fake ones.
The 3D scans were made with the MINI Revopoint in Feature, High Accuracy mode, and fused to resolution 0.02. The constituent materials of the sculptures are different: bronze, plaster, terracotta.
Interesting project! I am working on 3D-imaging of early 16th C Flemish sculpture. For now, the photogrammetric results are far better than those obtained with the POP2. However, it seems that the learning curve is rather steep
What are the steps to doing something like this in all those programs? What does a workflow look like? Does this take very long? Days to process? Could you fabricate these reliefs if you wanted to based on the files?
