Alternative uses of 3D laser scanning
We have all seen the use of laser scanning in terms of measuring buildings, but are there other uses?
Alexander Armstrong utilised scanners in his TV show the lost city of Italy (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0881gfb) to show the underground maze of tunnels under Naples and other Italian cities.
Gucci used scanners to make replicas of their runway models heads for them to carry under their arms as they strutted the new Autumn collection https://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/fall-2018-ready-to-wear/gucci
And now Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia is using 3D printing for high fashion. The results are nearly seamless jackets. By taking body scans of the models used on the runway he could 3D print the model then create the perfect fit of jacket, which were also 3D printed with tweed and velvet bonded to them to create the final finished jacket https://www.thecut.com/2018/03/cathy-horyn-fall-2018-reviews-balenciaga-givenchy.html
So it’s not just the architecture industry that are taking advantage of the latest technology. We haven’t ventured into high fashion just yet but maybe one day Prism will have a runway show!
For now we will stick to what we know, if you need any more information on laser scanning please feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
