Exact Metrology Helps Sculptor Create Life-Size Statues of First Responders

Cincinnati native Tom Tsuchiya is a well-known artist whose previous work includes bronze statues of former Cincinnati Reds players near the entrance of the Great American Ball Park and the inductees of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.  Now, Tsuchiya’s artistic skills are on display in Florence, Kentucky. The Florence Community Plaza features life-size statues of a firefighter, a public service worker and a police officer.

Although Tsuchiya has used 3D software, digital scanning, 3D printing and CNC (Computer Numerical Control) to help create sculptures in the past, the Florence project was the first time digital scans of actual people were used to create a sculpture.

Tsuchiya planned the general pose of the firefighter, the public service worker and the police officer with a little girl, using a 3D design program. He asked Matthew Martin, the Division Manager of Exact Metrology, and Scott Menne to digitally scan actual employees from the City of Florence, Kentucky. The firefighter in gear was scanned at the fire station, while the police officer and Martin’s daughter were scanned at the Florence city headquarters. A friend of the City of Florence posed as the public service worker.

Exact Metrology Public Works StatueMartin explained that Tsuchiya usually makes clay miniatures of his sculptures and has Exact Metrology 3D scan them. Concerning the Florence statues, Martin said, “Tom took a different approach and had Exact Metrology 3D scan the life-size figures using the Artec 3D Eva scanner. The figures were captured using a series of images at 30fps.”

After Tsuchiya finished the sculpting, the clay/foam/wood statues were delivered to the Sincerus Bronze foundry in Indianapolis to cast them in bronze. The whole process, from concept to bronze finishing, took four to five months for each sculpture.

Exact Metrology Plans to Exhibit at SHOT Show

CT SampleThe 42nd annual SHOT Show will take place between January 21 and 24, 2020 at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the largest trade show for target shooting, hunting, outdoor and law enforcement products. Over four days, the show generally attracts over 60,000 industry professionals and hosts more than 1,600 exhibiting companies.

Exact Metrology will be exhibiting at the upcoming show. Their main technologies featured will be CT scanning, Geomagic Design X and Polyworks Inspector™ software. In addition, Exact Metrology will discuss structured light.  According to Jason Kleinhenz, an engineer and trainer at the company, “CT scanning in combination with Design X (for reverse engineering ) and/or Polyworks (for quality inspection) creates opportunities for reverse engineering and quality inspection of internal components, very accurately, not possible through any other tool. Structured light systems allow highly accurate 3D data collection via line-of-sight.”

CT scanners permit the exploration of the interior of parts without any harm or destruction to the parts themselves. This technology takes multiple readings from various angles and converts the CT grey scales images into voxel-based 3D point clouds. After the CT scanner generates the point cloud data, Exact Metrology generates a CAD-to-part comparison map, dimension the part or reverse engineer it.

Geomagic Design X allows provides an easy path from creating editable, feature-based CAD models from a 3D scanner to integrating them into existing engineering design workflow. Furthermore, the software allows users to re-use existing designs without having to manually update old drawings or re-measure and rebuild a model in CAD. Finally, Geomagic Design X is easy to learn and use.

Polyworks Inspectoruses high-density point clouds and contract-probe datasets to control the quality of parts and tools at every manufacturing process phase. Using this software, users can acquire and control tool and parts dimensions, prevent manufacturing and assembly issues, guide assembly building and oversee the quality of assembled products.

Structured light, commonly known as blue light scanning, describes the use of 3D light-based scanners. Generally, structured light-based scanners offer the most accurate and highest resolution data. “Blue” refers to the color of the LED bulb in the projector.

Josh Schradin and John Legleu from Exact Metrology, will be there to answer any questions attendees may have. Schradin is head of the CT department, while Legleu is a technical salesperson.

Please stop by Exact Metrology at booth 51415 SUP during the show.

Exact Metrology Employee Shares His Experience

Jason Kleinhenz is one of many Exact Metrology employees at the company’s Cincinnati office, located at 11575 Goldcoast Drive.  While he does not have an official job title at the company, Kleinhenz describes himself both as an engineer and as a trainer. His job duties include managing and performing training, as well as marketing and creating content for Exact Metrology.

Jason Kleinhenz Exact Metrology

His first work experience came at age 12, when he and his brother started their own lawn care business.  To support himself during his time at the University of Cincinnati, he recalled working “almost every food/beverage position possible.” This included employment at the famous French restaurant Jean-Robert at Pigall’s.  Kleinhenz also worked in the university’s Nanomedicine Development Center. As a paid intern, he built RNA nano-motors that would attach to cancer cells and inject healthy DNA. He further broadened his experience with a job at General Electric in Japan, working in the environmental health and safety department.  After graduating with a degree in biomedical engineering, Kleinhenz remained at the University of Cincinnati performing research on the female pelvic floor for the Biomedical Engineering Department.

Kleinhenz started working in metrology in 2011, but had a 2-year hiatus. During that time, he worked as a Solutions Engineer at MHI Inc, a specialized heating manufacturer.  He started working at Exact Metrology in 2015 as an applications engineer. Next, he took over the position of sales coordinator before handling his current tasks. According to Kleinhenz, “The best part of working in metrology is that one day you might be working on a rocket and the next day on a beautiful piece of art (and everything in between).” Regarding his most memorable experience at Exact Metrology, he mentioned his trip to Peru this past summer. During two weeks, he helped scan Peruvian artifacts for preservation and deliver school supplies to a rural community.  “My mission in life is to relay joy, love and enrichment. Peru was a great experience because I was able to check the box of each of those, and the relationships and communities formed are invaluable.”

Besides his work at Exact, Jason started 2 companies. One delivers fresh cooked meals weekly while the other operates as a non-profit to raise money and “do good” for local area parks and communities through a hockey league. He also built and operates 2 donation-based services; a podcast studio and a gym.

Exact Metrology Helps Create Statue of Civil Rights Activist

A statue honoring Cincinnati civil rights activist Marian Spencer is underway. While Cincinnati already has several mythical representations of women, this would be the first statue of a real woman. Spencer was the first African American woman elected to Cincinnati City Council (1983) and the first female president of the Cincinnati Chapter of the NAACP (1981). She led the campaign to desegregate Coney Island swimming pools in the 1950s when her children were denied entry based on their skin color. Her subsequent lawsuit lead to integration. In addition, Spencer also fought to desegregate Cincinnati public schools. Spencer passed away this year at 99.

Statue Honoring Cincinnati Civil Rights Activist Marian Spencer
Model of the statue

Earlier this year, Alicia Schneider, the Committee Chair of the Women’s City Club, approached Spencer’s friend and biographer, Dot Christensen and asked her if Spencer would like to have a statue made in her honor. Marian Spencer supported the idea. The Women’s City Club set up a Spencer Statue Fund at Fifth Third Bank. The group hopes to raise $125,000.

Local Cincinnati sculptor Tom Tsuchiya was commissioned to make the statue. Tsuchiya is known for the statues of Reds players featured outside the Great American Ball Park. The statue will be a life-size rendition of her during her city council days with arms outstretched and two portrayals of modern children. Tsuchiya wanted to depict Marian in an authentic way. He said, “I decided against a single figure. That kind of statue is mounted high and it’s meant to be imposing, looking down on everyone.  Marian wasn’t like that. She was a person of the people.” He added, “It’s also 2/3 of a circle with the figures’ hands outstretched so that people can walk up to it and complete the circle.”

Scanning Model of Statue
Scanning the model

Noah Branscum, from Exact Metrology, scanned the clay model of the figures using the GOM ATOS Triple Scanner. The ATOS triple scan is a high resolution, optical digitizer that delivers rapid and precise 3D measuring data for the optimization of design processes. Thus, it improves industrial production processes. ATOS sensors are used in several industries for the inspection of parts such as: sheet metals, tools and dies, turbine blades, prototypes and injection molded and pressure die cast parts. It offers advantages in measuring reflective surfaces or objects with complex indentations. The software of the sensor is continuously monitoring the calibration status, the transformation accuracy, environmental changes and part movement to ensure the quality of the measuring data.

Ronnie Hensley used Geomagic Wrap to make the scan data (mesh file .stl) water-tight and scale it to actual size. Geomagic Wrap enables users to transfer point cloud data, probe data and import 3D formats into 3D polygon meshes for use in manufacturing, design, entertainment, archeology and analysis. The software intelligently processes complex point cloud data to revolutionize the way digital design and manufacturing is performed. It also revolutionized 3D printing, prototyping, and engineering. Tom then took the files from Exact Metrology and supplied them to other shops to build the statues.

The statue will be located in the Women’s Committee Garden of Smale Park. Spencer will be facing due south, looking at the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge. The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is right behind the statue and a playground in located to the west. The statue is expected to be presented June 28, 2020 on what would have been Marian Spencer’s 100th birthday.

Exact Metrology Scanning in Peru

Exact Metrology Scans Monoliths in Peru

Exact Metrology Scanning in PeruBetween August 5 and August 19, Jason Kleinhenz, the marketing manager of Exact Metrology, visited Peru. His mission was to assist archeologist and teacher, Daniel Fernandez-Davila and a group of 12 others to collect scan data of ancient artifacts.

Daniel Fernandez-Davila has made this trip for 21 years, accompanied by his students and residents from Wayland, Massachusetts.  Besides Kleinhenz, the team included Antonia Hieronymous, Rachel Lorenc and Nick Ciorogan.  Daniel and Antonia started a non-profit called Loose Change. Based in Wayland, Massachusetts, Loose Change organizes an annual week-long event to gather donations from the community. As the name implies, residents donate their spare change to the organization. All of the funds are used to buy books and educational materials for Peruvian schoolchildren. In addition to providing school supplies, the non-profit also builds/renovates schools. In addition, Fernandez-Davila made it his mission to scan a South American monolith and several artifacts, so that the information could be used in archeological research and also in presentations for museums. Lorenc participated on behalf of her mentor, Dr. Lisa DeLeonardris at Johns Hopkins. Dr. DeLeonardris said that “The purpose of this trip was first and foremost to document the artifacts (shaman vessels and monolith) with hopes of better presenting and/or publishing iconographic analysis.” Ciorogan, a professional photographer and videographer, completed filming for the movie “My Teacher.” With a release date of 2020, the movie focuses on Fernandez-Davila’s work in the Peruvian jungle.

Close-up of the scanned monolith

Artec 3D, a world-renowned developer and manufacturer of professional 3D scanners and software, provided a Space Spider and Exact Metrology brought an Eva scanner. The Space Spider is a high-resolution 3D scanner based on blue light technology. It is ideal for capturing small objects or intricate details of large industrial objects in high resolution and with great accuracy. Also supplied by Artec 3D, Eva is used for making a quick, textured and accurate 3D model of medium sized objects. It scans quickly, capturing precise measurements in high resolution. Not only does it capture almost any type of object (including black and shiny surfaces), but it is used in numerous industries including quality control, heritage preservation, forensics, automotive, medical, aerospace and prosthetics.

The data was processed in Artec Studio 14 and 10 by Exact Metrology personnel, namely Chris Lafferty, Greg Hoeting and Jason Kleinhenz. Then, the information was given to Chris Catlett at 3D Systems. The company supplies the best range of 3D printers, materials and application expertise. 3D Systems was used to turn 3D data into PDFs, CAD files and short movies. To complete this task, Exact Metrology employed Geomagic, their leading 3D software for digital reconstruction of the ruins.

Through this project, Exact Metrology showed that they can scan anything, anywhere for educational and research purposes, as well as build partnerships with the local community. The right side of the scanned monolith was dated between 400 BC and 200 AD, while the left side was estimated to date between 700 and 14700 AD. The artifacts are estimated to be between 500 BC and 100 AD. Exact Metrology plans to turn the data into solids by possibly 3D printing a few, turn the solids/meshes into user-friendly interactive tools or turn them into short videos. Furthermore, the company is preparing to present two scientific papers with Johns Hopkins at the 60th Annual Andean Studies Meeting in Berkeley, California in 2020. The videos will be supplied to museums in Peru.

Residents in Peru where Exact Metrology visited

To sum up the experience, Kleinhenz said, “The true value from this project came from the struggle, relationships built and the communities engaged. We’re excited to partner with great people and organizations to further the archeological research and philanthropic work. The community growing from this endeavor is really passionate and driven to deliver results – from my perspective, I’m grateful that I get to be a part of that movement, show Exact Metrology’s capabilities and partner with great people.”

monoliths in Peru

Exact Metrology Prepares Peru Trip

The company’s marketing manager prepares his August trip to Peru with Peruvian archeologist to collect scan data

Exact Metrology Goes to PeruJason Kleinhenz, the Exact Metrology marketing manager and a degreed engineer, is getting ready to visit Peru from August 5 to August 19. He will be assisting archeologist and teacher, Daniel Fernandez-Davila and a group of 12. Kleinhenz wants to collect scan data with the Artec scanners (sponsored and supplied by Artec) of ancient artifacts and up to three monoliths. Once the data is processed, it will be given to the local museum and the local area communities.

Daniel Fernandez-Davila teaches in Massachusetts. For 21 years, he has explored one of the most remote areas of Peru, the north high jungle of the Chacapoyas. Besides students from Wayland, Massachusetts and Kleinhenz, the team lead by Fernandez-Davila includes Rachel Lorenc and Nick Ciorogan. Lorenc is a research assistant at John Hopkins University. Ciorogan is a filmmaker working on the film “My Teacher,” which talks about how Fernandez-Davila is making an impact with his visits to Peru.

In addition to exposing students to the culture of Peru, Fernandez-Davila challenges them emotionally, mentally and physically by introducing them to a completely different way of life. As part of the trip, the team will perform philanthropic work for rural communities such as: dental work and providing school supplies.

Fernandez-Davila is excited to use Exact Metrology’s 3D scanners to preserve Peru’s archeological treasures. In the past, he could only take one photo and this worried him because the moisture of the jungle would destroy everything. This year, he decided to take action and start small. His goal is to 3D scan one large monolith with carvings. There are two other monoliths in the area that must be scanned before the rain erodes the carvings. In order to best achieve this, Fernandez-Davila declared that “I am hiring an engineer from Exact Metrology who will accompany me and digitalize the whole monolith and reveal its complex carvings with 3D portable deep laser scanners. This will allow me to create images and drawings I can give to the local museum of Leymebamba and I will also share them with the communities of peasants around the monolith.”
