3D Scanning of Built Environments

Are you curious to capture a glimpse of the world through the eyes of a laser scanner? This workshop will give participants an overview of the equipment and approaches to 3D scanning spaces at different scales: from rooms to buildings to streetscapes. 

The first part will provide hands-on experience on how to 3D-scan the built environment with structured light and lidar scanners around the InterAccess studio. This will be followed by a run through of post-processing workflows of the point cloud data for different practical and creative applications. The final part gives participants a chance to explore and experiment with the scanned 3d models and have a general discussion on the trade-offs of each method and the different types of outputs (from gaming to architectural). Several examples of 3D-scanned models will be available to continue the exploration at home.

Date: Saturday, November 9, 2019

Time: 1-5PM

Registration Fees:

Member: $95

What to bring: While the demos will be done on InterAccess computers, you are welcome to bring a powerful gaming PC laptop to load the models or a 16GB memory stick to take them home after the workshop. If you bring a laptop, please pre-install a (free) month’s trial of Autodesk ReCap software.

About the Instructor: Codrin Talaba is a design researcher exploring the intersection of physical and digital space. With a background in architecture, materials engineering and visual arts, he brings a multi-disciplinary approach that seeks to integrate diverse perspectives and ways of seeing - both human and machine - to enable better design planning, collaboration and storytelling.
