Factum Foundation has developed a Photometric Stereo Scanner since 2017, which extracts detailed information about flat or semi-flat surfaces such as paintings, murals, or sculptural bas-reliefs. The scanner integrates various inputs from non-contact recording technologies and is easy to operate. It acquires both surface information and color simultaneously, making it advantageous over the Lucida 3D Scanner. The four flashes used in the scanner are synchronized via a custom electronic board designed by Factum Foundation’s engineering team.
