One of Artec’s projects earlier this year will let you travel back to the time of the Tsars. Together with the Moscow Department of Cultural Heritage fundamental Russian history was preserved. An excavation site in the centre of Moscow reveals remains of the famous Transfiguration Cathedral at the Preobrazhenskaya Square. With the help of Artec S and MHT scanners, excavated objects were scanned — hence made
The Transfiguration Cathedral, built 1768 in Moscow has been of major importance to Russia: located in the rural community Preobrazhenskoe, the Cathedral was central to Peter the Great as a child. With Peter destined to be a Tsar, extra attention was paid to his education. A military camp, the first of its kind, was established for young Peter and his peers to learn about discipline, patriotism and armed defense. In the future, this camp becomes the cradle of Russia’s military. As for the Cathedral, it was destroyed by the Soviets in 1964, and has not been rebuilt since.
Now the Moscow Department of Cultural Heritage initiated a reconstruction project: after the surroundings were cleared, the excavation process done, Artec was called to scan found objects which could not be captured by big laser scans. Thorough scanning of each item took about 10 minutes and was followed by
The aim is to turn the excavation findings into a museum, which will be underground while the reconstructed Preobrazhenskaya Cathedral will sit on top. Now that the digging is done, the exposed remains of the Cathedral’s foundation will become accessible to anybody who wishes to journey back in time. This preservation part of the project resembles Louvre’s medieval basement in Paris: excavation discoveries remain untouched and covered by a concrete ceiling, giving you the opportunity to wander around
The precious relic was 3D scanned before and after restoration. Then, measurements of the two 3D models were taken and compared against each other in order to check whether restoration was duly done.
With a full 3D model of the dinosaur skull, visitors and students are able to view the CU Museum of Natural History’s most popular exhibit despite coronavirus closure.
This detailed statue of Guanyin was captured in its entirety, for preservation and in case of damage, prior to it being relocated from its current location for land development.
