What's Been Happening at Direct Dimensions?

April brings many things: showers, taxes, and even fools  - but at Direct Dimensions April seems to bring major events and exciting projects. We've gone the entire month without having a chance to update our blog. So what has kept us so busy?

1. Our 20th Anniversary!
On April 7th we celebrated 20 years of business. To commemorate this major milestone we created an anniversary website that highlights some of our most incredible projects.

2. Conferences
DDI President Michael Raphael leads a workshop on scanning at the Inside 3D Printing conference
This month found us traveling all over to attend events like SPAR2015, the Inside 3D Printing Conference and, closer to home, Maryland Day at the University of Maryland. 

3. Helping Create a One-of-a-Kind Time Capsule
Last year we volunteered to scan the monumental George Washington sculpture at the top of Baltimore's Washington Monument.  This month the data was used to create 3D prints for a special time capsule that will be embedded in the newly renovated monument. Check back soon for a longer post on this first-of-its-kind project.

4. Projects, Projects, and More Great Projects
We had folks out in Colorado scanning buildings, in Pittsburgh at a manufacturing facility, crews on-site for multiple movies and a crew scanning a historic plantation as well as major artists visiting our facility. We are certainly never bored! 

We're looking forward to sharing more 3D scanning in May!
