3D HD scanning
Multimedia presentations, virtual tours, digital archiving, communication, support for the creation, reproduction or restoration, scanning applications in the field of art and heritage are numerous. For optimal capture, AGP combines several process, including photogrammetry and laser scanning to obtain the best mesh and provide the best modeling. Beyond cutting-edge technology, AGP expertise guarantees full compliance of the works and the projects, from digitization phase to reconstruction phase, inspection and 3D texturing with the aim of giving 3D image the aesthetic and visual qualities of the original.
Work of art
For the reproduction of works of art, whether virtual in view of digital applications or real for the creation of copies in order to preserve the original, or intended for marketing, AGP creates digital doubles.
Digitisation by 3D scan enables an extremely faithful digital model of the work to be obtained, with an accuracy of up to 25µ, whilst maintaining the object intact, because no contact is needed. The quality of the material used by Art Graphique & Patrimoine enables the process elements with all kind textures and dimensions.
For actual reproduction, AGP produces a prototype based on a three-dimensional digital file on diverse scales and made of various materials, which ultimately enables a mass production of the reproduction of the object.
Art objects, collections and decoration
AGP places its competencies and experience at the service of art-object modelling, regardless of their size, texture or morphological complexity. 3D digital models can be applied to multiple uses: as fixed images for digital catalogues or virtual presentations, as video for communication, mediation or study animations, using real-time 3D or stereoscopy to handle objects and use them virtually, and lastly to create copies.
Artists, collectors, auctioneers, curators, researchers: our 3D hub is attentive to and studies your needs in order to offer you the best solutions.
AGP intervenes in various sectors of cultural heritage and is well placed to meet the requests of commissioners from the world of contemporary art. Our perfect command of 3D HD digitisation techniques enables us to assist you, whether for the reproduction or the creation of your works.
AGP has, for instance, modelled the Joconde de Magritte (Magritte Museum) or the Berger des Nuages by Jean Arp, the scans of which served to create the bronze sculpture (©Fondation Arp)
Interested in contemporary creation, AGP has also collaborated with the artist, Xavier Veilhan, for the creation of his famous monument structures (The Lion, The Bear), for his series, The Architects (here: Renzo Piano), and with the Chinese multimedia artist, Yi Zhou, by digitising the models prior to their interpretation in plastic.
AGP contributes to preserving and promoting industrial heritage, the memory of our society and its technological innovations. In collaboration with Dassault Systèmes, AGP has digitised several vehicles developed during the Second World War, and used for the landings of June 1944. It particulary concerns the LCVP (Landing Craft, Vehicle and Personnel) boat and the Waco CG-4A glider, private collections. These elements were inserted into the 3D film, "D-Day, they invented the landings", or used on other media within the framework of the commemorations marking the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
Communication and marketing
AGP can offer its expertise in digitisation and in virtual images for advertising or communication campaigns. Our competencies acquired through the digitisation of works and objects of art and through the fields in which AGP evolves enable us to accompany and advise you in decisions on aesthetics and renderings, sing the digital images to their fullest. The examples below refer to an advertising campaign commissioned by Chanel, art photographs for the Black Book and a project by Publicis for the creation of an advertisement for a famous brand of car.
