Industrial Computed Tomography shows hidden details of an object.
A nice violin may hide quite a few secrets.
In this video we scroll through three direction, slicing the violin in 0.1 mm slices. We start with axial slices, running from the scroll to the button. Growth rings, restorations, shapes and colours: everything moves in synchrony.
Watch this video before buying your next instrument.
If you are a restorer, think of what you can know even before having the instrument in your atelier.
You need just a few hours, and you can have many answers.
