The 3D scanner was purchased at the request of the Department of Urban Planning and Architecture of the HOVA within the framework of the joint humanitarian project of the Toloka Foundation and the Kharkiv-Nuremberg Twinning Society.
In particular, they scanned the Novobavarian Military Commissariat in Kharkiv, which was affected by Russian shelling.
Director of the Department of Urban Planning and Architecture of HOVA, Anton Korotovskyi, said that more than 10 buildings have already been scanned in the region, among them the National Literary and Memorial Museum of H.S. Skovoroda.
“Scanning an object takes a long time, sometimes even several days. After all, first we do an internal scan and, if necessary, an external scan. Then we process all this in special programs. After that, we have a 3D model of the building with an accuracy of 1 mm. This is, so to speak, our archival material that we will preserve for posterity. They will be able to open and look at any detail on the facade or in the interior,” said Anton Korotovskikh.
He also added that it will help to accurately calculate all the destruction and understand how many materials will have to be used for restoration.
The representative of KP “Kharkiv Regional Engineering and Consulting Center” Daniil Yelfimov noted that such technology is used all over the world. This is one of the first devices for Ukraine.
