3D Scanning Saves Ancient Babylon Civilization in Iraq

Date:2015-11-27   Reading:1806

Ancient cities, like Babylon, have been followed years of plunder, neglect and conflicts, making them of today scarcely conjure that illustrious history. The ancient city of Babylon was repeatedly denied designation as a World Heritage site, mainly because it lacks clearly defined boundaries, a comprehensive preservation plan and safeguards to ensure sustainable tourism. The future of Babylon becomes an essential topic for heritage conservation.

Although the splendid has gone, as well as the wondrous “Hanging Garden”, preservations are taking by all sides, like Iraq local government, World Monuments Fund, etc...As WMF said, many challenges remain: repairing the damage caused by the military, assessing the effects of the twentieth-century reconstructions at the site, and helping the Iraqi authorities make the site ready for visitors to once again enjoy the wonders of this site in the cradle of civilization. Shining 3D also commits itself to assisting to repair cultural relic of Ancient Babylon.

Xinyu Zhang and Hong Liang, travelmates as well as couple, went to the ancient city of Babylon with Shining 3D EinScan Handheld 3D Scanner and EinStart-S 3D printer in the trueman show ON THE ROAD (one program that is very popular in China's biggest video website Youku), to donate the scanner and printer to the Iraq government on behalf of Shining 3D.

In the government office, Shining 3D technician gave the native officers a training on how to use 3D scanner and 3D printer, and introduced the 3D scanning and 3D printing technology and the applications to the locals to support the local preservation of culture relics.

Taking fixing a porcelain doll as an example, by using 3D scanning technology, point set of the porcelain doll are collected, which will be filtered and modeled after inputting into computer. The lost part and support structure are printed according to the 3D simulated image.


“This certainly couldn’t be a better example of global teamwork, working to save geographic and cultural history, as well as citizens of different countries working together in both teaching and learning contemporary new skillsets that offer so much benefit for archiving and preservation. “ describes.

Shining 3D endeavors to make more breakthroughs in 3D technology in the archaeological area. And we believe the establishment of the digital model and information storage for cultural relics and archaeological sites by using the computer technology has a broader research and application prospect with the further development of 3D scanning and 3D printing technology.
