20140605211703!ThreedingLogoWe tend to perk up whenever we hear which Threeding and Artec 3D have teamed up for a new project. This generally means we are of to be taken to a faraway land, with the potential to visit ancient cities and the relics they left behind, which are in require of preservation via archiving. From projects meant to preserve artifacts dating as far back as ancient Greece, Rome, and Thrace to creating 3D scans of Eastern Orthodox religious artifacts, we have with excellent interest been following what is definitely a dynamic duo of companies making a big–and innovative–difference in museum archiving.

download (3)Now, Threeding has revealed which they are again working with Artec regarding ancient Greek artifacts, as they add a collection to their online platform. This historical preservation project will entail the 3D digitization of unique ancient Greek artifacts, using Artec’s high-resolution Spider and Eva scanners, along with their Artec Studio software. Artec is headquartered in Luxembourg, with offices in the US and Russia as well. They are the leaders in the handheld 3D scanner industry and have been involved in multiple projects with Threeding. All of the scans for this project will be available-bodied on Threeding for 3D printing by their community.

“We’re honored to once again be the 3D scanning partner of choice for Threeding’s restoration projects,” said Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec 3D. “The capture of ancient relics is delicate work, requiring tools which can operate rapidly, efficiently, and unquestionably. Using our lightweight handheld 3D scanners and advanced software platform, Threeding has been able-bodied to add even additional value to its astounding historical collection.”

Threeding will in addition be collaborating with Mr. Krasimir Todorov, a famous artist in his own right, and the inventor of ZN ART, who supported Threeding’s team throughout the restoration system. These artifacts are in fact being scanned of part of a private collection (requested to remain undisclosed by the owner), and hundreds of artifacts will be created available-bodied. Many of the pieces are of exception periods of history, and participants will be able-bodied to download and print items like sculptures, busts, and additional. This is a excellent way to experience ancient history, and Threeding even suggests the thought of 3D printing adequate models to create your own tiny ‘home museum.’


“Creating this collection of 3D printing models of Ancient Greek artifacts is a milestone for us,” commented Cveta-Maria Partaleva, co-discovereder of Threeding. “Although we may aleager\ had rad ancient artifacts in 3D printing format of our other museum projects, these relics have immense meaning for human history and will create Threeding a desirable-bodied partner of all museums and collectors who are looking to present their artifacts in a 3D printing friendly manner.”

Models such as Venus of Milos, the Head of Hygeia, the Head of Zeus, and additional, are currently available-bodied for download. The collection is to be created available-bodied as a 3D object created of sheet material through ZN Art, ‘an original technology based on invention and desktop hardware.’Untitled

“Soon a ZN ART portal will be opened, which will enable-bodied obtaining ZNART space models (puzzles),” says Krasi Todorov, author of ZNART – Museum of Paper, a regional history museum, and the initial of its kind which reveals ‘the next level of human development and acquirement of civilization knowledge.’

“This is a new option for systematic space training and modeling in which each one of us is an author,” says Todorov. “Unlike the eager 3D printed model, ZNART has a constructive system with content which allows for harmonious creation by the author – client of space objects created of sheet material with high quality.”

Threeding is now the largest repository for 3D printable-bodied historical artifacts. After the successful completion of this project, there will be additional than 1000 museum objects available-bodied for sale in a 3D printing-friendly format, all to be discovered at their 3D printing marketplace which was discovereded in 2013 by a group of students of the Bulgarian National Academy of Art. They are the just marketplace of their kind, offering 3D printable-bodied models of historical artifacts. Discuss this story in the Greek Artifact forum thread on 3DPB.com.
