This research aimed to investigate mobile 3D scanning technologies to improve the 3D data capture methods and workflow efficiency for Canvasman Ltd a SME company based in Otley near Leeds, UK. At this phase in the Collaborative Venture Fund (CVF) project the researchers have provided results to the company and a detailed scoping case based technical report. The report includes a product market survey of handheld 3D scanners, product evaluation matrix, 3D software review, and user testing and analysis experiments into each selected 3D portable scanning hardware and software from a range of providers including: Faro, Artec, and the Structure Sensor for IPad.
The presentation, focused on communicating the key phases of the CVF project with the company and other industry partners. And outlined some of the exciting interdisciplinary applications of 3D scanning technologies for colleagues and practitioners across disciplines, not only in art, design, architecture, and engineering, to improve efficiency of data capture, visualisation, archive, design and development of any object, or interior and exterior spaces within the human centred and built environment.
The session in which the research was presented in is titled, ADA in materials and visual culture, and it addressed the role of materials in the production of new knowledge in art and design practice and theory. Historically art and design has always involved collaborative exchanges: between artists, historians, theorists, consultants, designers, technicians, engineers and policy makers. Today new technologies and innovations - capturing form with data is just one example – offer opportunities for artists and designers to engage in novel trans-disciplinary research relationships. This poses the question how to initiate, develop and sustain research collaborations beyond the conventions of our traditional disciplinary boundaries?
