  • Interior Designer with 3D Glasses - Where are the Best Places?

    Special 3D glasses allow the user to immerse into the three dimensional interior design of a virtual model of a production facility.

    Many of today’s products and production processes are created, tested and optimized in the digital world. But until recently, owing to their complexity, this was not true for factories. Now, researchers from Siemens Corporate Technology (CT) have developed a tool that visualizes production facilities in 3D – a development that, by making processes transparent, helps to avoid expensive planning errors. About one year ago, CT researchers presented their visualization concept at Siemens’ Digitalization Day. That’s when they encountered Philipp Bierschneider from the Digital Factory Division, which is located in Amberg, Germany.

  • Virtual Worlds: Research Trends in Mobile 3D Data Collection

    Technological advances in mobile laser scanning have substantially increased the quality of 3D measurements in recent years and made possible new applications. Over one hundred mobile laser scanning experts gathered at Fraunhofer IPM’s international MoLaS Mobile Laser Scanning Technology Workshop to discuss the state of the art, applications and new products. Mobile laser scanning has developed to become one of the most important technologies for the 3D mapping of objects. Installed on measurement cars or trains, on aircrafts or ships, laser scanners measure large areas without physical contact. The measurement data can be used to create a highly detailed 3D image of the environment which may be almost photo-realistic depending on measuring conditions. Mobile laser scanners measure extremely fast, ever-more efficiently and precisely thanks to technological advances. Some units are now so small and lightweight that they can be used on drones.
