Charlemagne, Frankfurt am Main

Laser scan of a larger than life-sized statue of Charlemagne

The larger than life-sized statue of Charlemagne was captured with a handheld laser scanner called T-Scan 2 (Steinbichler Optotechnik). The projects aim is a faithful copy which will be produced by Bamberger Natursteinwerk Hermann Graser GmbH. The measurement of the quite recently restored statue our non-contact scanning-methods are ideal because of their high resolution.

The original statue will be a highlight in the exhibition of the Historisches Museum in Frankfurt. The copy will be placed on the Alte Brücke where the original initially used to be.

The project was realized by Format4plus GmbH.
