3D Image Based Scanning

Abstract In the last decades, the generation of the 3D avatar has proven to be a significant challenge and has limit commercial usage due to the high costs associated. Improvements in image-based 3D reconstruction and camera hardware allow us to reduce the cost of 3D scanners drastically. This paper presents a fast and complete pipeline for a full body 3D scanning system Keywords 3D Image Based Scanning, Digitization process, 3D scanner, Body modelling, Avatar creation Nowadays, various fields such as medical and entertainment industries, education or cultural preservation are using virtual humans. Much work has been done in the...

mobile, rapid reconstruction for VR heritage simulation

Abstract This case study presents a comparison of latest software and hardware for rapid reconstruction of real humans using as an input RGB or RGB-D images, and based on this comparison is introducing the pipeline that produces high realistic reconstructions in a reasonable amount of time, suitable for real-time Virtual Reality (VR) simulations in virtual museums. Keywords Rapid reconstruction, Virtual Reality (VR), Agisoft Photoscan software, Fast Avatar Capture application, Occipital Structure Sensor Virtual characters play a fundamental role for attaining high level of believability in Mixed-reality environments and they are the key-element for transferring knowledge and presenting scenarios in...

Documenting challenging objects in archaeology

Abstract Working with and documenting waterlogged wooden objects pose a special challenge to archaeologists. Modern structured light 3D scanners support the work of archaeologists and help to analyse and evaluate artefacts in a greater detail. This case study of excellence showcases how waterlogged wooden objects excavated from historic mines in the Ore Mountain region are documented. The Archaeological Heritage Office of Saxony, lead partner in the binational German-Czech research project ArchaeoMontan, has developed a broadly-adaptable approach that foresees 3D scanning each wooden find twice: before and after the freeze-drying treatment. 3D models created from the two scanning processes allow...
