Virtual Restoration of Artefacts Using 3-D Scanning System

Jagjit Singh Randhawa and Akshat Gupta
Abstract—Humans today belong to a Global village with easy and fast cultural exchange resulting in a growing global culture. However, people have a largely different but equally glorious past culture and history. Preservation of all these cultures is important. This paper explores the method of virtual restoration and subsequent fabrication of repaired design. In this paper an 800 years old (material) statue is restored virtually using 3-D scanning, CAD operations and 3-D printing, in the systematic sequence. The statue is a bust of Lord Buddha originally sculpted in 2nd century A.D. The Gandharan Buddha is seated in the lotus position (padmasana), with his hands in the gesture of meditation (dhyana mudra), referring to the Buddha’s periods of meditation. The sculpture is presented at Government Museum and Art Gallery, Sector 10 Chandigarh.

Index Terms—Archaeology, artefacts, virtual restoration, 3-D scanning, 3-D printing.
