Happy to share this news!
After 4 years of intense work, with the support of many friends and institutions my work on the virtual neck reset of the 1716 Stradivari ‘Messiah’ is published in January issue of The Strad Magazine.
This application of X-ray Industrial Computed Tomography (or CT) to cultural heritage opens new horizons on what we can do with these precious datasets.
I hope this will help makers all over the world to benefit from what we can learn through the use of CT
So many people to thanks!
