3d Scanning archaeological sculptures of Bilbao Cotzumalguapa culture with 3d portable handheld laser scanner ZScanner 800 from ZCorporation. PDF Print E-mail

FLAAR Reports has started to evaluate and review 3d handheld portable laser scanners. On this page you will find an introduction and first notes on the evaluation that FLAAR Reports has started to do with the Z Scanner 800 from Z Corp. We will like to thank in advance Z Corporation for providing the training on their equipment specially Andy DeHart for making this possible and Joe Bortolotti (Applications Engineer from Z Corporation).


In December 2009 Dr. Nicholas Hellmuth, FLAAR Reports staff and Camila Morales a volunteer student from: Los Andes University of Bogotá Colombia, visited the Museo de Cultura Cotzumalguapa and the archeological site Bilbao located in Santa Lucia Cotzumalguapa Guatemala, to start testing and reviewing the Z Scanner 800 from Z Corp, with the pre-columbian sculptures, stelaes and artifacts. 


Here are our firsts results:

3d_software_digital_modeling_geomagic_11
After you have completed the 3d laser scans you have to process your 3d files on 3d software, we at FLAAR Reports are evaluating a trial version of geomagic studio 11 3d software to transform digital scan data into 3d digital models.

 

Since FLAAR evaluates all kinds of digital imaging software and processes, we are also doing a study of faux 3d visualizations, namely QTVR object movies. The advantage of an object movie is that you can see the object in full original color. You can rotate it, but not upside down and not inside out (this requires 3d scanning). So, every program, each technology, has advantages, but also a few downsides. Some technologies do one aspect well, but rarely does one technology do absolutely everything. For all these reasons FLAAR evaluates diverse technologies, so show archaeologists and museum curators the full range of options.
