Low-cost X-Radiography for Paintings. Our 2nd crowdfunded Research initiative.
In 2015 we made a low-cost Multispectral Imaging system for Art thanks to a crowdfunded research initiative.
Now we launch our 2nd crowdfunding campaign: low-cost X-Radiography for paintings.
We want to build a low-cost and portable X-radiography scanner. Dentists’ X-Radiography equipment is cheap and digital. We’ll use that technology to build a X-radiography scanner for paintings.
We need your help to raise 10,000 euro and start working on this project. To say THANK YOU we offer contributors 20% OFF on Pigments Checker and 30% OFF on training programs in 2017 including a new X-Radiography module.
Note: X-radiation is dangerous. Be sure to have all the necessary authorization in your Country to operate an X-ray tube. CHSOS follows Italian guidelines for operate with ionizing radiation.
