3D Scanning Newsletter - Summer Edition

Our 3D scanning summer newsletter is full of great stories!

Scanning Bronze Sculptures for Museums: Recently Direct Dimensions worked with museum curators at The Walters Art Museum and The Johns Hopkins Mind/Brain Institute to 3D laser scan and 3D print several bronze sculpture replicas for the groundbreaking exhibit “Touch and the Enjoyment of Sculpture."

Facility Scanning: This story is a great example of how we used lasers to capture and 3D model a complicated MEP space within an aging historic building for renovation into new modern living spaces.

Reverse Engineering Aging Aircraft Components: Digitizing and reverse engineering aging Navy aircraft cargo door seals extends the life of the aircraft.

Laser Scanning Race Car Seat: Laser Scanning and 3D imaging this complex prototype is a perfect solution for manufacture.

Make sure to sign up for our 3D scanning newsletter to get the latest industry news and cast studies.

Product Spotlight: The Surphaser HSX Laser Scanner

Known for its unsurpassed accuracy, speed, and ease-of-use, the Surphaser is ideal for rapidly capturing as-built objects of mid-range size including cars, planes, military vehicles, boats, monuments, rooms, buildings, and even people! Applications include reverse engineering, quality control, historical preservation, architecture documentation, and forensic reconstruction.

The Surphaser line of scanners incorporates an adaptable user interface to capture specific data areas. And the software exports accurate 3D data sets with little noise to any major post processing software applications such as PolyWorks, Geomagic, Rapidform, Rhino3D, or others.

Surphaser products are deployed worldwide, delivering unparalleled precision and value in 3D scanning. Direct Dimensions has performed many demonstration projects with this exciting new tool.
