Rongorongo

Rongorongo Tablet B (or Aruku Kurenga) from Easter Island

Model of Tablet B (or Aruku Kurenga) inscribed in the Rongorongo script of Easter Island. The 3D model was acquired with ScanRider 1.2 laser scanner by VGER and rendered through CuneiformAnalyser software framework. Courtesy of Museo della Congregazione dei Sacri Cuori di Gesù e di Maria, Rome.

Rongorongo Tablet C (or Mamari) from Easter Island

Model of Tablet C (or Mamari) inscribed in the Rongorongo script of Easter Island. This is the first 3D digital model of a Rongorongo inscription ever developed. It was acquired with ScanRider 1.2 laser scanner by VGER and rendered through CuneiformAnalyser software framework. Courtesy of Museo della Congregazione dei Sacri Cuori di Gesù e di Maria, Rome.

Replicas

3D-printed model of Cypro-Minoan clay ball

Replica of Cypro-Minoan clay ball - 3D-printed model 

The ball in orange is the outcome of a 3D-printing experiment, kindly carried out by Elio Jannelli, Professor of Energy Systems at the Parthenope University of Naples. It was printed from the digital 3D model of a scanned Cypro-Minoan clay ball (in grey yellowish clay). The scanned ball is a replica carrying an unattested inscription: this experiment has shown the impressive level of detail we can achieve with this technique.

Reconstruction in 3D of a clay ball inscribed with the Cypro-Minoan script. We used photogrammetry and laser scanning in synergy.

Replica of Cuneiform tablet

This 3D reconstruction is an experiment to see if the techniques we are using (photogrammetry combined with laser scanning) perform well also when the signs are very small and dense. This is our first trial, on a replica of a tablet inscribed with cuneiform signs, from the Damascus National Museum, Syria.

This 3D model of a replica of a cuneiform tablet from Ebla is rendered through a technique called Radiance Scaling Shader (MeshLab)
