3D Scan Spotlight - Footwear
March 7, 2018

Over the years we have scanned a TON of footwear, first in the R&D phase in 2013 and then for several clients.

The raw scans are usually in the 1-3 million polygon range, allowing for detailed materials maps to be generated. So...

Homes Gone Past - 11th Ave
December 10, 2018

Today on "Homes Gone By", were probably going to ask questions with no answers, specifically about the heritage home on East 11TH Avenue in Vancouver. "Lack of electrical light fixtures, daytime showing preferred" I got the heads up, same as any potential buyers who wanted a showing; the home was a heritage renovation that was halted, I assume foreclosure. In a popular and accessible area of East Vancouver, the property was buffered...

Today were going to expand on our look back at Disguise; our collaboration with The Seattle Art Museum.

One of the many clothing scans performed at Microsoft turned out to be one of the best uses for Photogrammetry. The time saved on clothing skins proved to be very valuable to several projects!

3DScan Spotlight - Props
September 30, 2019

One of the main advantages of 3d scanning is the relatively quick creation of props, something that can make filling a 3d scene VERY expensive. When we can cut down the modelling time by a factor of 10, especially for complex objects, the choice is simple.

3DScan Spotlight - Totem
October 29, 2019

While many of our scans are captured in the controlled comfort of a well-lit studios, there are times where you need to capture something onsite.

Incorporated in 1980, the Society was initially incorporated to provide affordable housing to Aboriginal families and individuals with low to moderate income, currently operating just under 500 units of a...
