Steinbichler COMET5 Sensor is a measuring system able to perform measurements for such applications as checking of dimensions, shapes and position tolerances of objects from simple geometric elements to free-form surfaces. Obtaining data is now faster because of shorter acquisition times. One of the greatest advantages of the system is its mobility thanks to its enduring body and protective case.
The requirements in this task were to achieve highly precise measurement of the historical artifact from which a quality 3D model could be obtained. Due to the measurement with high precision (7-8 μm) and resolution (75-150 μm) the measured and post-processed spatial data resulted in a very good 3D surface model which can be studied down to the smallest details. This can help us to understand the techniques and skills of our ancestors. But there are other great aspects besides keeping and maintaining our cultural heritage in a digital form for further study and for next generations. It facilitates sharing of these data among historical, cultural and archeological institutions all around the world.
