September 2010, Direct Dimensions traveled to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia to 3D laser scan the Caligula statue. The scanning took a full day using the FARO Platinum Arm, the Faro Laser Scanner, and PolyWorks software. Direct Dimensions then converted this raw point cloud data into a super high resolution watertight polygon mesh model for subsequent analysis.

  • 1. 3D Digital Restoration of Caligula 3D Scanning, Digital Modeling, and Digital Sculpting by Direct Dimensions, Inc. Baltimore, Maryland, USA www.directdimensions.com
  • 2. September 2010, Direct Dimensions traveled to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia to 3D laser scan the Caligula statue. The scanning took a full long day using the Faro Platinum Arm, the Faro Laser Scanner, and PolyWorks software. Onsite 3D Scanning – Data Acquisition Raw Scan Data: each color represents a different scanned area
  • 3. The 3D data captured was pieced together and converted into one single 3D digital model that serves as an extremely accurate digital archive of the priceless sculpture. This high resolution 3D model would become the starting point for a complete digital restoration of the sculpture. Digital Modeling – Creating the 3D Model from Scan Data Original Sculpture in poor condition Raw 3D Scan Data Polygonal Model with holes Complete 3D Model and Digital Archive Fully Restored Digital Model
  • 4. Meeting of the Minds Direct Dimensions’ Jason Page (2 nd row far left) worked with a team of experts in art history, world heritage and conservation from the University of Virginia, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Art, Emory University, and the University of Florence. The team provided specific direction and reference materials which would guide the artistic digital restoration.

  • 22. Digital Painting Original Caligula without color One of the goals of the project was to attempt to interpret how the sculpture may have been painted, and apply color in the virtual space. Scholars instructed us to use the Copenhagen Caligula example as an initial reference. Copenhagen Caligula painted reference model
