Dr. Wirth Gravursysteme has developed a completely new method for generating
high-quality images. It uses the features of 2D and 3D scanning processes to create
2D images that can be printed in the usual way and look very life-like. Of course, this
form of outstanding photography also overcomes the problem of creating striking 3D
effects on flat sheets of paper. Laying down a number of key statements can help
explain the ins and outs of this method: 
Statement 1: The world of graphic arts is essentially made up of two-dimensional
displays – printed paper or other media, packaging, textiles, films, screens (computer,
Internet, TV), etc. 
Statement 2: The possibilities for creating the illusion of 3D objects on 2D displays
are not yet being exploited to the full. Three-dimensional images have only limited
Statement 3: 3D objects send out signals to the human brain to create the impression
of 3D. If a flat display succeeds in sending out the same signals, the 3D effect should
be the same in the brain!
Statement 4: If all the signals that a 3D object sends out to create a 3D effect are then
recorded and output on a 2D display, it should be practically impossible to distinguish
between the original and the copy.
