This paper presents the results of a study in which a close-range structured light system is used for the digitization of a cultural heritage object. A Herakles statue, named "Weary Herakles" and located in the Antalya Museum, Turkey was scanned by a Breuckmann optoTOP-HE system. The work comprises the essential steps of the 3D object modeling pipeline, i.e. digitization, registration, surface triangulation, editing, texture mapping and visualization. 3D recording, modeling and visualization of
