Tech companies Threeding and Artec have teamed up in order to participate in the preservation efforts of ancient Greek artifacts. The two companies will be digitizing certain artifacts in 3D form and adding the finished result to their online platform.
Their work will revolutionize the museum archiving field and will facilitate the historical preservation process. The project will entail the 3D digitization of unique ancient Greek artifacts, using Artec’s high-resolution Spider and Eva scanners, along with their Artec Studio software, reported 3DPRINT. Artec is a leading company in the field of 3D scanners located in Luxembourg.
“We’re honored to once again be the 3D scanning partner of choice for Threeding’s restoration projects,” said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D. “The capture of ancient relics is delicate work, requiring tools that can operate quickly, efficiently, and precisely. Using our lightweight handheld 3D scanners and advanced software platform, Threeding has been able to add even more value to its impressive historical collection.”
Hundreds of ancient Greek artifacts, part of a private collection, will be made available on the Threeding platform for 3D printing, once the project is completed. The artifacts date back to different historic periods and include items such as sculptures and busts.
“Creating this collection of 3D printing models of Ancient Greek artifacts is a milestone for us,” commented Cveta-Maria Partaleva, co-founder of Threeding. “Although we already had fantastic ancient artifacts in 3D printing format from our other museum projects, these relics have tremendous meaning for human history and will make Threeding a desirable partner of all museums and collectors who are looking to present their artifacts in a 3D printing friendly manner.”
