3D Scanning for the Holidays

Posted By Pauline Tang on December 21, 2012 at 4:00 PM

As we approach the end of the year 2012, we want to wish you and your family happy holidays and a great start to the new year in 2013!

In continuation with our holiday festivities from Halloween, we decided to scan a few of our favorite Christmas tree ornaments using the HDI Advance R3 3D Scanner using color cameras and the rotary table system.

3D Model of Fox

The actual fox ornament is made from Natural Sisel Fibers. It is more complicated to capture the true likeness the texture on the fox which has a bristle-like quality compared to a flat surface. The texture ressembles hair so our team used the new hair scanning mode with 3D scanning software, FlexScan3D, that is included with the HDI Advance R3 3D Scanner.
