Priceless Paintings – Scanned and Printed in 3D

Incredible 10μm resolution 3D scanning of paintings. Skip to 3:20 to see the incredible sculptural qualities of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. Technique uses two 40 megapixel DSLRs and a fringe projector (forming a structured-light 3D scanner) to capture the topological map at a resolution of 50μm in the plane of the image and a depth of 9.2μm. Not clear on how they were printed.
