As we all know, The archaeology field plays a particularly important role in the study of primitive society, from the Old Stone Age to the appearance of writing, accounting for 99% of human history, but there is no text to study. Reverse engineering is the process of redesigning the complete specimen through the data from 3D scanning. 3D scanning is the process of digitizing data from real objects. This is a link that always goes together and brings great benefits to archeology.
3D scanning and reverse engineering in the archaeology field.
The archaeology field plays a particularly important role in the study of primitive society, from the Old Stone Age to the appearance of writing, accounting for 99% of human history, but there is no text to study. On the database of high precision obtained by 3D scanning, designers use reverse engineering technology to create digital 3D models for the rest of the artifacts and print them out with a 3D printer and perform the following processing to complete the restoration.
Steps to be taken:
Step 1: 3D scan of antiques to be recovered
The antique piece is brought to the engineering room and done 3D scanning with the handheld 3D scanner. The accuracy of the 3D data obtained after scanning is very high (0.04mm). Next, the 3D file is edited and saved to move to the design stage of recovery.
Step 2: Reverse engineering of antiques
From the 3D scanning file, specimens are designed and restored using design software. Then the design file is saved as .stl and done 3D printing.
Step 3: 3D print restored antiques
Design files are encoded and fed into the 3D printer to create a fully-fledged object.
With 3D technology, especially 3D scanning – 3D scanning and reverse engineering, the archeology industry has achieved important achievements and great strides.
