Scan4Reco project aims to develop a novel portable, integrated and modular solution for customized and thus cost-effective, automatic digitization and analysis of cultural heritage objects (CHOs), even in situ. A multi-sensory 3D scanning - facilitated by a mechanical arm – aims to collect multi-spectra data, which will be used to perform a 3D reconstruction of CHOs using a hierarchical approach. This will enable a multi-layered rendering, advancing both the analysis and 3D printing procedures. The goal is to create highly accurate digital surrogates of CHOs, providing a detailed view of their surface as well as a volumetric structure, material composition and shape/structure of underlying materials, thus enabling rendering for visualization and/or multi-material 3D printing.

Scan4Reco project will further facilitate conservation, by indicating spots/segments of cultural objects that are in eminent conservation need and require special care, while suggestions will be provided by a dedicated Decision Support System (DSS), over conservation methods that should be followed.
