Paleontological expedition to Kenya
Starting on August 25, Artec’s handheld 3D scanners will be in action at a paleontological site at Turkana Lake, Kenya. Two Artec 3D specialists, Francisco and Denis, are joining the Turkana Basin Institute’s paleontology group for two weeks to help document and record the findings using Artec 3D scanning technology. Here we are publishing their daily travel notes, giving you a chance to experience two weeks in the heart of Africa.
We would like to cordially thank the TBI and renowned paleontologist Louise Leakey for giving us this opportunity!
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.
A researcher focused on high-throughput phenotyping of perennial ryegrass needed a way to non-destructively measure 160 individual plants in the field 6-8 times over the duration of his project, to help identify specific plants with the most desirable traits for plant breeders and farmers.
Artec Eva is regularly used both in-house and at client locations for scanning difficult-to-3D model objects, particularly those with complex geometries, after which these scans are transformed into AR/VR-ready 3D models.
