Artec creates memories
As part of Design's days, which recently took place in Paris, a group of designers from SISMO, together with Artec’s authorized reseller in France 3D AVENIR, staged a real show. The goal of the presentation was to demonstrate the possibilities of new technologies and their role in contemporary design. And they chose a very clever way of doing this – they played to the human weakness of narcissism. Whereas pictures and sculptures no longer impress anyone, an absolutely perfect copy of one’s own face, obtained instantly using Artec’s scanner and 3D printer, is another matter entirely. The delight the performance evoked among the audience is completely understandable. Not everyone has a medal bearing his own likeness, but a lucky 150 visitors to the exhibition now do.
Thanks to this creative idea 3D AVENIR and SISMO received the award for the best display stand from French newspaper Liberation.
Each person wants to leave behind something of himself to be remembered. Artec scanners give everyone the opportunity to immortalize themselves in a matter of minutes.
They say that all roads lead to Rome. And in one case, a smooth journey from Canada to the Vatican was ensured via the use of 3D scanning.
Archaeologists working in South Africa’s “Cradle of Humankind” utilized a handheld 3D scanner during excavation & manual reconstruction to help safely piece back together an extremely rare hominid cranium from hundreds of unearthed fragments.
An archaeologist needed a way to digitally preserve ancient Peruvian artifacts and petroglyphs in damp, humid conditions, far more reliably and quickly than traditional photogrammetry.
