Geo-centric: The robot arm orbits the globe autonomously and measures it.

The CultArm3D-P is part of CultLab3D, a project focusing on the development of innovative 3D scanning technologies that are readily combinable with each other. They are designed for objects of different sizes and automatically scan geometry, texture and optical material properties for a faithful reproduction down to the micrometer.

Their range of applications comprises solutions for industry, construction, healthcare and creative industries. 3D data can be used for quality assurance, reconstruction or reverse engineering. They can also support the digital documentation, presentation and preservation of cultural assets. CultLab3D contains years of experience in the faithful digitization of artifacts and building-like structures.

CultLab3D is the research lab of the Cultural Heritage Digitization Competence Center at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD. With funding from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, the world’s first 3D scanning pipeline for highly efficient mass 3D digitization was produced. The 3D technologies developed in this project are being continuously optimized for a broad range of applications, from capture to visualization, to reproduction through 3D printing.
