Practical 3D Reconstruction of Cultural Heritage Artefacts from Photographs – Potentials and Issues
Keywords:3D reconstruction, Photogrammetry, 3D acquisition, 3D scanning, ARC3D, Meshlab
A new technology is on the rise that allows the 3D-reconstruction of Cultural Heritage objects from image sequences taken by ordinary digital cameras. We describe the first experiments we made as early adopters in a community-funded research project whose goal is to develop it into a standard CH technology. The paper describes in detail a step-by-step procedure that can be reproduced using free tools by any CH professional. We also give a critical assessment of the workflow and describe several ideas for developing it further into an automatic procedure for 3D reconstruction from images.
