Grave plate, Mainbernheim / Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nuremberg

3D scan of a historic bronze grave slab

The historically significant grave plate of the pastor Michael Schober, who was buried in Mainbernheim in 1657, is currently kept in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg. In order to be able to present at least a copy of the grave slab on the Mainbernheim cemetery, a high-resolution 3D scan of the original in the museum was made with the self-tracking hand-held scanner Artec Spider. The 3D virtual model created in this way was realized as a 3d print in cooperation with the Coburg University of Applied Sciences, Institute for prototypes and model technology. The chosen combination of scanner and printing process makes it possible to display even the smallest details in outstanding quality.
The 3D print now serves as the basis for the production of a bronze casting, which will be set up again in the cemetery in Mainbernheim.
