3D Scanning of sculpture at Kykuit

The Rose Garden Fountain at Kykuit

The Rose Garden Fountain at Kykuit

I used a series of calibrated photographs of this sculpture to create the basis for documentation of this sculptural fountain about five years ago. At that time I was able to make reasonably detailed drawings of the fountain’s architectural features and – if needed – I could provide accurate 3D point measurements of any point of the stone surface.

More recently I went back to the photos and reprocessed them photogrammetrically to create a more enhanced description of the fountain in the form of a high density point cloud, mesh and 3D model. The video above ^ shows the model of the entire fountain in these various formats.

The video below shows the upper portion of the model in a little greater detail.

This work was conducted to provide for documentation of this work of art so that a replacement could be made in case the original was damaged through structural failure or catastrophic event.

Byproducts of the three dimensional model include accurate orthophotography depicting the model in plan and elevation. see below…
