High accuracy 3D modeling has the potential to repair and reestablish cultural relics and restore the original appearance of historic buildings, painted sculptures, wall paintings, utensils, and other artifacts. By digitally preserving historical records, 3D modeling can provide accurate information for scientific research, academic preservation, and culture study. After the 3D modeling and rendering process, users can add relevant information, HD photos, descriptions, and archival information to each cultural relic resource, all to be freely accessed, searched, and viewed anytime.
This technology helps make digital museum construction a reality. 3D modeling can construct a digital stereoscopic view of real existing museum pieces, encouraging public participation, interaction, and fascination, thereby popularizing and promoting scientific and historical studies.
China Central Television recently launched a large-scale cultural exploration program called “National Treasure,” covering a special exhibit at the Shanghai Museum. The exhibit, which featured three cultural relics¾Shang Yang Fang Sheng, Zucker soft tapestry Lian Tang Milk Ducks, and Dake Tripod¾attracted massive crowds of people dying to see the true features of the “star” artifacts.
We can adopt inclined photographing techniques to photograph and scan these cultural relics, upload them to the Wit3D cloud server, and perform real 3D modeling. Users of the mobile app can see the whole collection without leaving the comfort of home or use the Digital Culture Museum app to view real-time 3D models of cultural relics in online museums.
