Completed: 3D colour laser scanning


The aim of this project was to bring together museum conservators, educators, scientists, curators and other professionals from the higher education and museum sectors, who are interested in 3D imaging technologies and its implications across the heritage sector through workshops, practical sessions and conferences.

UCL has commissioned a state of the art Arius 3D laser-based imaging system that is capable of capturing highly accurate 3D geometry and colour information from complex objects. This is a facility newly acquired in Europe and one of the highest-quality 3D scanners in the world.
