Artec 3D, a world-renowned developer and manufacturer of professional 3D hardware and software, today announced its partnership with Scan the World to bring digital collections from museums across the world to the online community and is being hosted on Google Arts & Culture.
Scan the World will utilize an Artec Eva handheld scanner to 3D scan sculptures, artwork, and historical artifacts, producing an extensive ecosystem of free to view, share, download, and print digital cultural heritage via Google’s Art and Culture online community. In making culture accessible, communities are encouraged to share their stories and creations with the goal of bringing tangible heritage to the masses.
One of the first stops for the Scan the World team will be to digitize a prestigious collection at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg in 2022. With a library of hundreds of three-dimensional artifacts spanning 4,000 years of human history, Artec Eva will provide an optimal solution for making this collection accessible to the world, while Artec Studio 16’s photogrammetry tool will ensure the museum’s highlights are captured in full, true to life color detail.
