Counting Down to Our 20th Anniversary

If you don't follow our twitter feed (@dirdim) you might have missed our announcement that we're just weeks away from Direct Dimensions' 20th anniversary.

On the 19th we tweeted a picture from 1995 of founder and president Michael Raphael using one of the very first FaroArms. We'll continue posting a picture/project per year until our anniversary. It should be a fun look, not just into the history of Direct Dimensions, but at the history of 3D scanning. If you aren't on twitter we'll recap here every week.

Here's what we covered this week:

Michael Raphael using one of the first arms from Faro.

Year 1: 1995. One of our very first projects was to help create a monumental sized sculpture for the Olympic Games in Atlanta. You can read more about the project here.

Year 2: 1996. Here is Michael our 2nd year, using a FaroArm to inspect trimmed edges to 3D CAD in real time.
Year 3: 1997 We 3D digitized a serious collector car called a Cunningham C-4R.

Follow us on twitter or check back here to see 1998-2003 next week!
