3D models for Cultural Heritage: beyond plain visualisation & MeshLab: an open-source, cross-platform tool for the 3d scanning pipeline
Nico Pietroni & Guido Ranzuglia, ISTI-CNR
Part 1: 3D models for Cultural Heritage: beyond plain visualisation
Nico Pietroni: The Institute of Information Science and Technology, Pisa
Digital technologies are now mature for producing high quality digital replicas of Cultural Heritage artefacts. It is now time to go beyond the plain visualisation of those assets, devising new tools able to extend our insight capabilities and to revise the current consolidated procedures for CH research and management.
Nico Pietroni is a researcher at the Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell’Informazione (ISTI) of the National Research Council (CNR) in Pisa, Italy.

Guido will introduce the 3D digitisation pipeline (from the acquisition to the final model) using MeshLab. MeshLab is an open source, portable and extensible system for processing and editing of unstructured 3d triangular meshes. The system is aimed to help the processing of the typical not-so-small unstructured models arising in 3D scanning, providing a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering and converting this kind of meshes.

Events scheduled for 17.30 will start at 16:00 with a tour of the exhibition where the speaker and other 3DC representatives will be on hand to give a tour and talk to the visitors. The seminar itself will start at 17.30 after the exhibition has closed at 17.00. After the seminar, visitors will be invited to join a discussion over a glass of wine with the speaker(s) and other 3DC representatives and visitors.
