FROM SURVEY TO 3D MODELLING TO DIGITAL FABRICATION. A WORKFLOW AIMED AT DOCUMENTING AND TRANSMITTING BUILT HERITAGE
Keywords: Metric survey, 3D modelling, Digital fabrication, BH transmission, Baroque vaults, Palazzo Mazzonis
Abstract. This contribution illustrates the results of research that aims to connect the workflow for knowledge – survey, interpretation, modeling – to the transmission of this knowledge and enhancement of Cultural Heritage by physical models, demonstrating its potential in a “Design for All” perspective. Palazzo Mazzonis, the current seat of the MAO (Museo d’Arte Orientale), is one of the many buildings in the historic city center of Turin characterized by a particular complex vaulted atrium: it has been investigated through TLS survey tools for the production of two-dimensional drawings (for the detailed representation of architectural features) and three-dimensional models (for the interpretation of the design idea through geometry). The last phase of work aims to translate the interpretative digital models into tactile models for Cultural Heritage transmission, through processes of digital fabrication, with obvious impacts on the visit path inside the museum, also with didactic purposes.
