As we all know, the archaeological field plays a critical role in the study of early culture, from the Old Stone Age until the development of writing, accounting for 99 percent of human history, but there is no text to study. Reverse engineering is the technique of completely rebuilding a specimen using data from 3D scanning. The technique of digitizing data from actual items is known as 3D scanning. This is a relationship that is constantly present and provides significant benefits to archeology.
In the discipline of archaeological field, 3D scanning and reverse engineering are used.
The field of archaeology is particularly significant in studying primitive culture, which covers 99 percent of human history from the Old Stone Age until the emergence of writing. However, there is no text to examine. Designers utilize reverse engineering technology to produce digital 3D models for the rest of the artifacts, print them out using a 3D printer, and then execute the following processes to finish the restoration, based on the database of high accuracy obtained by 3D scanning.
Step 1: 3D Scanning to recover antiques
The ancient object is transported to the engineering area, 3D scanned using a portable 3D scanner. The 3D data received after scanning has a high level of precision (0.04mm). After that, the 3D file is modified and saved to proceed to the recovery design step.
Step 2: Reverse engineering antiques
Specimens are developed and repaired using design software from the 3D scanning file. The design file is then saved as. Stl and 3D printed.
Step 3: 3D print restored antiques
3D print antiquities that have been repaired
Design files are encoded and fed into the 3D printer to create a fully-fledged object. The archeological sector has made significant progress and successes because of 3D technology, mainly 3D scanning – 3D scanning and reverse engineering.
