Nowadays, 3D measurement and re-construction technologies are widely used not only in industry area, but also in the appreciation and research of ancient architecture and historical relics. Many methods are used for the architecture measurement in large scale, but as for the details of architecture or precision historical relics, these methods meet difficulties. Thus, historical relic objects with specular surface or complex sculptural surface could not be measured by traditional method. Focusing on these problems, this paper proposed 3D measurement technique which contains two levels of measurement. Firstly, when measuring ancient architecture in large scale, laser scanning and photometry methods are used. Then, when measuring details of architecture, a fast and adaptive 3D measurement system is used. Multi-view registration is also used for the measurement of hollowed-out structure of sculptural relics. The experiments indicate that the system can achieve 3D measurement and re-construction of different types of ancient architecture and historical relics.
