Originally from London, Paul Hanaphy is a journalist turned marketing content writer at Artec 3D. Since going full-time as a journalist in 2019, Paul has reported on everything from local news stories to those with national and even international dimensions. Following a stint at a local paper that saw him cover that year’s UK General Election, Paul turned a long-standing interest in advanced technologies into a career – by joining the 3D Printing Industry team.
While writing news, features, and interview pieces for the publication, Paul became better acquainted with the disruptive potential of both 3D printing and 3D scanning. During his time at the publication, Paul also covered and spoke at industry events like Formnext, Rapid+TCT, and IMTS, quickly becoming an authoritative voice for those working in the sector.
Paul has a keen interest in the automotive and aerospace fields – and over the years, this has been reflected in his work. After his graduation from Kingston University with a Master’s Degree in journalism, Paul went on to cover racing series like NASCAR and Formula 1, as well as popular British showcases such as the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Likewise, he has been fortunate enough to report live from exhibitions like the Farnborough Air Show, where manufacturing technologies continue to be pushed to the absolute limit.
Aiming to get ever-closer access to such technological innovation, Paul has left the British Isles and begun a new European adventure at Artec 3D. As part of the Artec team, he now curates content for those seeking to better understand how 3D scanning works, where it’s beginning to be applied, and how it continues to break boundaries across industries.
When he’s not writing about 3D scanning, Paul is likely playing football, cheering on a race car driver, or clutching a dictionary while trying to order a cup of tea in another language.
Thomas More automates prosthetic customization with novel AI and Artec 3D scanning
Thomas More Mobilab & Care researchers have used Artec 3D scanning to train a predictive model with the potential to accelerate prosthesis & orthosis customization.
What is a Digital Twin?
With advanced technologies like AI, VR, and 3D scanning increasingly being integrated into manufacturing, the line between the physical and virtual has never been blurrier, leading some to say that we are living through a Fourth Industrial Revolution.
3D scanning for metrology
At times, traditional CMMs can struggle to rapidly and non-invasively measure objects, particularly when these feature holes or brittle surfaces.
Photogrammetry for games
Over the last decade, character models and environments in video games have come on leaps and bounds, not just due to game console hardware upgrades, but the adoption of digitization processes like photogrammetry.
