Investing in expensive art is the in thing. These pieces of art require restoration or preservation at times. These are the scenarios where high-end 3D scanning comes in handy. As one of the main means of reverse engineering, 3D scanning systems can produce exact measurements of sections where repair and replacement is demanded helping with restoration work in a way that the piece of work retains its originality. 3D scan data of world famous works can also be used as educational tools for art students.
