New Imaging System Generates 3-D Models Using Unmanned Aircraft
2012-05-23 08:24:56

University of Granada researchers have developed a 3D imaging system that scans 3D models of historical buildings using data obtained from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)—an aircraft without a human pilot onboard. This is the first 3D imaging system to combine the use of UAVs, image-based 3D modeling technologies, and virtual representation of models to produce a realistic modeling of 3D objects from images. The endpoint of this project is to obtain a 3D model of a historical...

The History of 3D Printing
2013-09-20 10:14:26

Three-dimensional printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the process of using additives to form solid 3D objects of virtually any shape from a digital model. This is achieved using specially formulated additives, such as plastics, that are formed into successive layers of material typically laid down on a platform in different shapes. 3D printing is uniquely distinct from a more traditional 3D sculpting technique, which relies on the removal of layers (subtractive manufacturing)...
