IMA Solutions was in charge of the 3D digital media productions :

  • 3D xray acquisitions of the two skeletons of the sepulture.
  • 3D rapid prototyping at scale 1 to 1 of the skeletons for the autopsy table of the exhibition.
  • 3D animations for the interactives.

Saint-Front de Domme cave- 3D scanning


We made the 3D scanning of the engraved mammoth of the Saint-Front de Domme cave in Dordogne to make a scale 1 to 1 replica for the exhibition “Giants from Ice Age” at Parc de la Préhistoire de Tarascon. This replica shows the importance of animal representation in art during Prehistory.

The high definition 3D scanned model is also a digital backup. It will serve on the future to compare to new acquisitions to see the state of conservation.

Musée des Augustins – 3D scanning


IMA Solutions 3D digitalized the “Méléagre” sculpture from german sculptor Philipp Jakob Scheffaeur. This digitalization can be used for 3D interactives or 3D physical replicas for blind people.
