This project is a great example of facility scanning for building information modeling. We captured large areas of a medical facility, which we then converted into extremely accurate as-built 3D models. The final data was imported into our client’s applications (REVIT, Navisworks) saving them time and money compared to traditional measurement techniques.
Working with the New York Public Art Fund and artist Rob Pruitt, the Andy Monument pays tribute to art icon Andy Warhol in New York's Union Square. The project demonstrates body scanning, high-resolution scanning, digital portrait sculpting, and artist-directed model modifications.
Since introducing Mantis Vision's F5 we've used it for a host of applications -- scanning movie sets, people, vehicles, and especially facilities. We’re impressed by its speed and ability to capture scenes we couldn’t access with any other device. It’s definitely the most exciting addition to our arsenal.
I love this project because it combines three very unique things to create a new and exciting product: the classic use of 3D scanning for mold creation, a recycling initiative from Coca-Cola, and the iconic Emeco Navy Chair.
Make sure to follow us on Twitter. We tweet regularly on all things related to 3D. Typical tweets include live updates from conferences and 3D events, interesting articles that you shouldn’t miss, images from particularly cool jobs that we are working on and updates about what is going on at Direct Dimensions.
We uploaded quite a few videos to YouTube in 2011, but the most popular by far was the Building MEP Space CAD Model Fly-Thru.
Our summer of 2011 was filled with a ton of work 3D scanning for some of this year’s most anticipated films, such as Men In Black 3, The Hunger Games and Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator.
