An affordable automated 3D surface scanner: the case of Canaletto’s ‘The Grand Canal, Ascension Day’ (2021)
Presentation / Conference
Aure Calvet, X. (2021, February). An affordable automated 3D surface scanner: the case of Canaletto’s ‘The Grand Canal, Ascension Day’. Paper presented at Digital Past

We present an affordable and automated 3D scanner to record the structure and colour of planar surfaces of artworks. The system is based on the combination of photogrammetric and Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) data and generates high-resolu...

The frieze of the Palace of the stuccoes, dated between the 5 th and 6 th century BC, was a polychrome Maya relief discovered in the 1907 in Yucatán, Mexico. It was documented in watercolours and hand tinted photographs by Adela Breton. After years o...

The reconstruction of the appearance of the Acancéh frieze by 2.5D printing (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Klein, S., Trujillo Vazquez, A., Calvet, X. A., & Parraman, C. (in press). The reconstruction of the appearance of the Acancéh frieze by 2.5D printing

The aim of the project is to reconstruct the appearance of the Maya frieze of the Palace of the Stuccoes in Acancéh Yucatán, dating from c. 350 BC to AD 850. The frieze itself is destroyed by now but was documented by Adela Breton in 1907. Her waterc... Read More about The reconstruction of the appearance of the Acancéh frieze by 2.5D printing.

The National Gallery in London has recently been testing the potential of 3D scanning technology to record and measure the surface of paintings. To view and interact with the high-resolution scans requires expensive computational hardware. The propos...
