Visualization of multiple material layers


Material aging has a significant effect on the appearance of cultural heritage objects. These aging effects depend on material composition, object usage and weathering conditions but also on physical and chemical substance parameters. Some types of changes in the materials underneath the visible layers can also be detected and subsequently simulated. Furthermore, recent 3D printing technology enables exporting 3D objects with transparency information. We report on the development of software tools for visualization of material aging for artwork objects that can be used by curators and archaeologists to understand the nature of aging and prevent it with minimal preservation work.
