3D Scanning - Wrench Wednesday Question on LinkedIn


 It’s “Wrench Wednesday”! Our recent 3D blogging efforts ( http://f3-inc.com/blog/ ) have gained a lot of attention so we thought we would form today’s question around our 3D Blog. For today’s question, how many points were collected in the 3D scan of the historic “Gig Nana”? The 3D Data was collected at the historic Legion of Honor; Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco in the San Francisco Bay Area.  For hints and footage and follow F3 & Associates on LinkedIn and check out our 3D Blog so you can be first entry on Wednesdays.

3D Scanning/From the Field - International Projects- Logistics

One of the most important aspects of a successful 3D Scanning project, in addition to profitability, are the lessons learned. Logistics's can be one of these "valuable" lessons.  

It is important to know the "lay of the land" that you will be traveling to, through and that your project is in. As an example here are a few things to consider:

  • Communications; Do you have a plan that covers International calls?
  • Currency: Does your credit card charge additional fees for foreign conversion?
  • Shipment of 3D Laser Scanning gear: What is the excess baggage or shipping fees?
  • Travel documents:  Passports for your personnel and Carnets for your 3D Laser Scanning gear....

These are just some of the items that need to be considered with the Logistics of a 3D Laser Scanning project.

In my next blog I will talk extensively about Carnets and how they will make your life (travel in & out of country) much easier.....

Until my next post,
