About the 3d-scanned King´s Room at Läckö Castle
The King´s Hall is the most decorated room of Läckö Castle. It made very good sence to 3d-scan this room! It is a celebration of the Swedish victory over the catholic German-Roman emperor during the 30 Year War. The king of the time is Gustav II Adolf, the Lion of the North. He is seen as the Swedish king enabled Sweden to become a super power of it´s time. There is a large painting of the king and you can also see the battle of Luetzen where he was fatally wounded in the year 1632.
The room was renovated by a count with taste for luxury and perfection
Count Magnus Gabriel de la Gardie was one of the most rich and famous people in Sweden. He owned Läckö Castle, nine other castles and thousands of mansions. When he renovated Läckö Castle he only hired the most famous and skilled artisans from all over Europe! These craftsmen literally spent decades on perfecting this room with all its paintings. You can still admire this work of art since it has been so well preserved. And thanks to the 3d-scan of me you can enjoy it online as well!
Flying angles in the ceiling decides who sits where
The angles in the ceiling decides where the guests are sitting. The kings placement is marked with an angel holding the kings crown. The further away in the room you come, the lower social status the guest has. Furthest away from the king is the balconies, where the music system of the room sits; the live musicians. Unfortunately I could not 3d-scan them this time, even if there might be ghosts in this castle..
3D-scan data from this project
3d-scanning the room - the process explained
Photogrammetry is an established way to 3d-scan rooms and objects. A high end DSLR is used in order to create as sharp and clear photos as possible. This allows the software in the computer to recognize common geometry between different pictures thus creating a 3D-model.
We use many images for a 3d-scan
Normally one do not use more than 500 images to scan an object, but this is a big room with lots of detail. I used 1750 photos that all are interconnected since I always use ca. 80% overlap between two different photos.
It took 8 hours to capture this room
It took 8 hours to scan the room with the DSLR and roughly 12 hours to process the data. I used a powerful remote computer cloud in order to easier process the images.
