3D-scanning masterworks at TU-Delft

One of the AR Lab’s partners, Delft University of Technology (involving master student Tim Zaman and professors Pieter Jonker, Jo Geraerdts and Joris Dik) has developed a 3D-scanning method with which not only the image of a painting, but also its material surface can be scanned. As a result, is it possible to print out a picture that has many of the original painting’s qualities - equipment made by Océ, part of Canon, was used, amongst others, for this method. Tim Zaman used two camera’s and a projector to accurately scan paintings by Rembrandt and Van Gogh. This project received quite a lot of national and international media attention.
