Color-calibrated replicas using 3D printing
The project produced true-to-scale and color-calibrated replicas of ancient artifacts through contact-free 3D digitization and 3D printing. They serve exhibition purposes at the original location Roseninsel. The originals are of high value and are therefore not allowed to be displayed for safety reasons. Also, the production of replicas by traditional print-making methods were not considered as suitable due to the risk of damaging the original surfaces.
The project was carried out in cooperation with the 3D Printing Department at Fraunhofer IGD to use the color printer driver Cuttlefish for reproducing the geometry, colors as well as fine color transitions of the original.
