Prof. Dieter W. Fellner: From reality to virtuality and back to reality

In his easily accessible talk, Dieter W. Fellner, director of Fraunhof IGD, will discuss 3D visualization. The more realistic it seems to us, the more diverse their areas of application. Whether digitally archiving cultural artifacts, presenting products online or prototyping: The level of detail is critical, since exact 3D digitization and 3D reproduction is essential for professional use. The technological advancements and ongoing automation under the umbrella concept of industry 4.0 require and increasing need for research into 3D modeling¾from capture to visualization, to reproduction through, e.g., 3D printing.
