The Strad3D study violins were scanned as 600 'slices', which can be viewed as individual cross-sections, as frames in a video journey through the violins, or assembled into a 3d geometrical model of the entire violin, which can be rotated and studied from any angle.
CT videos shown here include several views including:
AXIAL (a series of sections taken across the width, showing internal and external arching)
WOOD (transparent 3D projection showing internal densities)
SURFACE (an opaque 3dD projection, showing a solid surface)
NB.Some strange visual “artifacts” are apparent in the CT images, a result of scanning interference from metal parts such as fine tuners and tail-gut adjusters.
