The last two weeks of July were dedicated to 3D-scanning at the MAK. As part of Partage Plus, Thomas Nasswetter of Steinbichler Optotechnik GmbH visited the museum in order to produce 3D-scans of selected Art Nouveau objects. Despite the heat (Austria actually experienced its hottest week in recorded history!), Thomas in cooperation with our collections staff managed to successfully scan about 150 objects from among the participating collections Glass and Ceramics, Furniture and Woodwork, Metal and Textiles, as well as from the Library and Works on Paper Collection. The procedure was witnessed with great interest by the MAK’s staff who had not been in touch with the technique of digitising objects in 3D before.
