3D Scanners UK scan & create polygon Ammonite model
The fossil was 3d scanned at 3D scanners site in Coventry using a laser arm scanner and aligned within Innovmetric's PolyWorks Modeler software.
The image below shows the raw data. The scanned image is made up of many coloured stripes, representing the stripes of the laser scanner.
The organised point cloud data was then meshed in PolyWorks Software which selects the best overlapping data to create a polygon model.
Result: An stl model for producing a prototype or use as a 3d catalogue visual display.
