Our friends Anders Lyhagen and Felix Heuman found a way to take that same shared passion for the past and combine it with their skillful use of SketchUp. Their design firm, Holygon, specializes in creating historically-accurate digital models for visual and 3D printing applications.

3D Basecamp 2018: What You Missed

2019-01-03


Well, it finally happened: 3D Basecamp 2018 has ended. After nearly a year of scheduling sessions, ordering swag, and swapping emails with the venue staff, the best week of the year has come and gone… and what do we have to show for it? Plenty!

Full disclosure: I am totally biased and I love all things Basecamp. But, I can say that this year’s event in Palm Springs was something very special. Those of you who were there know exactly what I am talking about.

MooTools 3D Browser: Review

2018-12-28

3D Browser Light and Full are completely different beasts. The Light Edition is strictly a file viewer. It extends the file viewing abilities of Windows Explorer to make viewing various 3D Formats possible within its own OpenGL viewer. It also allows you to view video, image and audio files. The 3D Browser Full Edition is more than a media manager because of the added options you get as compared to the Light Edition. It is a full fledged 3D asset viewing, conversion and file modification application.

David SLS-1 3D Scanner: Review

But the technology at that time meant the scanning process was slow and it also meant spending time in a dull to dark environment. The results were impressive but the level of involvement was high.

Since that time the team behind the DAVID Scanner, DAVID 3D Solutions, have released their latest addition to their 3D scanning Portfolio. DAVID-SLS-1 scanner uses Structured Light technology, to produce 3D scans in a matter of seconds.
