What’s the current problem?

For stone inscriptions, a monument can be engraved with hundreds of words with two or three centimeters of each. These calligraphic writings are complex, which means the outline and chisel depth of each word must be extremely recorded. Besides, these stone inscriptions are hard to be recognized due to the time corrosion, therefore it is difficult to obtain the digital file of the original words.

How to solve it?

With the development of technology, 3D scanning digitization is widely applied to historical relics’ field. The accurate 3D data can be quickly obtained without contacting the relics. And the digital model, with extremely high duplication, can be used for displaying, researching and protection of cultural relics.
