7D Works, a company specialized in the digitization and reproduction of works of art, uses several Kreon systems on portable articulated arms for its heritage preservation applications:
For 7D Works, using Kreon scanners presents many advantages, such as lightness, comfort of use of the portable system, which allows on-site digitization, great accuracy, no contact with the ancient and fragile parts, and no limitation in the size of the digitized objects.
The 3D models generated eliminate constraints linked to physical archiving of artefacts such as staining and spotting and permit fast and easy access to the 3D models, easy handling and analysis of data, possibility to create and compare models. The models are directly available for reproduction in different materials and in different scales.
Involved in the reproduction of one of the throne rooms of King Ashurnasirpal II's palace, built more than 800 years B.C. in Nimrud (current Irak), the Spanish company Factum Arte uses the Kreon Zephyr KZ50 scanner mounted on a 7-axis arm to digitize large-scale sculptures and surfaces with complex reliefs.
That portable scanning solution fulfils the Factum Arte's needs to obtain digital reproductions of existing artworks to allow their restoration.
