Exact Metrology Offers Leica RTC360 Laser Scanner

Scanner features Leica Cyclone Field 360 and Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360

Leica laser scanner used in industrial environmentsExact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology service provider, is proud to announce the immediate availability of the Leica RTC360 3D laser scanner.  Manufactured by Leica Geosystems and distributed by Exact Metrology, these portable coordinate measuring machines are designed to measure large-scale objects. This laser scanner uses 3D reality capture.

3D reality capture is a process of scanning and capturing any site, for example, factories, buildings, crashes and crime scenes, in a 3D digital model, combining measurements and imagery. The model can be used for design and comparison purposes in various situations, capturing every detail with to-the-millimeter accuracy. This technology combines one-touch operation with portability and speed to deliver high levels of accuracy, automation and the ability to create 3D environments in a matter of minutes.

Leica laser scanner used in building construction environmentsMany industrial sites present inhospitable environments, where the health and safety of the employees and visitors are at risk due to temperature, corrosive materials, moving machinery and heavy objects. In addition, sites often have networks of pipes, tunnels, storage vessels and other structures that need to be examined. 3D reality capture permits complete site visualization for safety training. Site visibility also greatly improves plant management efficiency. Accurate measurements help designers create extensions without needing to visit the site and enhanced planning of workflow avoids disruptions.

Thanks to 3D reality capture, Building Information Modeling (BIM) experts save time and money as BIM processes become more efficient, from the accuracy of construction documentation to design and build quality assurance. The latest laser scanning technological developments improve understanding and documentation of the build environment through the use of millimeter-accurate laser scanning and High-Dynamic Range (HDR) imagery.  By using 3D reality capture, previews of data and imagery are viewable onsite directly from a tablet, enabling scans to be checked and verified before going to the office.

Leica laser scanner used at scene of car accidentUsing 3D technology is useful when a crash or crime scene requires quick analysis of the scene. Scanning creates a 3D environment that can be explored and analyzed, as well as documents the entire scene in detail.  Furthermore, fast scanning minimizes disruption and delays and removes scene degradation, thus providing jurors with credible evidence.  Security and site validation at public events are likewise very important and an accurate model of the area can highlight threats and risks not readily evident.

With a measuring rate up to 2 million points per second, automated targetless field registration (based on VIS technology) and automated transfer of data from site to office, the device and software greatly reduce time spent in the field and maximize productivity.

The scanner’s portable design and collapsible tripod fit into most backpacks. Low noise data allows for better images, resulting in crisp, high-quality scans that can be used in a variety of applications.

As part of the RTC360 solution, the Cyclone FIELD 360 links the 3D data acquisition in the field with the laser scanner and data registration in the office with Cyclone REGISTER 360. The user can automatically capture, register and examine scan and image data.

Exact Metrology Discusses CT Scanning Technology For 3D Printed Work

Exact Metrology, a comprehensive metrology service provider, participated in a webinar on February 20, 2020. The general subject involved testing and inspecting parts that are 3D printed. Josh Schradin, a project manager at Exact Metrology, gave a presentation on industrial CT (Computed Tomography) for additive manufacturing.

A CT scan, also known as an X-ray Computed Tomography (X-ray CT) or a Computerized Axial Tomography scan (CAT scan) uses computer-processed combinations of several X-ray images taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional (tomographic) images or “virtual slices” of specific areas of a scanned object. This allows the user to see inside the object without cutting or damaging it. The basic components of a CT system are its X-ray source, the sample on a rotary table and a detector (see image 1).

How Exact Metrology XraysThe reconstruction process takes multiple images of the object at multiple angles or projections around the object. With a projection, users can analyze the part formation or look for defects. Once the complete projections are captured through a 360-degree rotation, the images are segmented into grayscale value pixels.  Since the same theoretical point was captured from multiple angles, they become 3D volumetric pixels, or voxels (See image 3). A voxel set features different colors based on density and grayscale value. A voxel grid is used to stich images together.

Magnification is also an important part of CT scanning.  Moving the object closer to the X-ray source provides a larger shadow, optimizing the resolution of the final image, while having an object closer to the detector provides a smaller shadow that decreases the final resolution.

Exact Metrology ScanApplications of CT scanning in the additive world include defect analysis/porosity, dimensional analysis, trapped powder, product content position, reverse engineering wall thickness, air gap detection and others. In defect analysis, exploring the complete volume of an object allows users to see defects that would normally go unnoticed. Volume of voids, or porosity, can be calculated to determine risk of mechanical failure.  Users can align the data to the CAD model, export the defects out and run finite element analysis and/or simulation. Many specs have a defect size limit. CT scanning assures that limit isn’t surpassed.

Exact Metrology Voxel SetCT data can be used to measure dimensions from a drawing to verify that a part is within specifications.  A color plot deviation to the nominal model is also helpful to verify a part is meeting specifications (see image 6). Many samples of a part can be run to determine a trend. In addition, a metal part can be scanned prior to heat treat and after heat treat to see what has changed. A heat map is also applicable for deviations in wall thickness and air gap.

Trapped powder can be located during the printing process either by magnification or using a color map that shows deviation to the nominal model (see image 8).

Exact Metrology Scan wih NURBS ModelReverse engineering is achieved with the NURBS model, which stands for ‘Non-uniform rational B-Splines.’ This model consists of a curve network applied directly to a mesh controlled by allowable fit tolerances (see image 10). The final surface skin represents the CAD surface used and can further facilitate downstream applications such as machining, FEA, build corrections etc. Applied to a watertight mesh, it will result in a solid model.

Product content positon allows manufacturers to audit their products and determine if embedded objects are placed properly.

Exact Metrology Scans Monument Circle in Indianapolis

Innovative, an ad agency in Indianapolis, was contacted by Downtown Indy Inc. to create a light projection at Monument Circle for Veterans Day. Located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, it features the Soldiers & Sailors Monument and the Colonel Eli Lilly Civil War Museum. Downtown Indy Inc., the city’s nonprofit organization, received a grant from the Lilly Endowment for the show and the goal of the ad agency was to produce a projection show that will be image mapped on two buildings in the circle’s southwest quadrant. To accomplish this, Innovative became the creative content provider for Exact Metrology. 

Mesh data created by the Leica scanner

Mesh data created by the Leica scanner

Greg Hoeting, the application specialist at Exact Metrology, used a Leica P40 to collect point cloud data. Leica ScanStation P-Series 3D laser scanners are ideal for capturing 3D geometry of civil infrastructure, creating an as-built representation of large industry complexes, reconstructing crime scenes or generating 3D data for integration into Building Information Modeling (BIM). In addition, these laser scanners offer unsurpassed range and angular accuracy with low-range noise and survey-grade dual-axis compensation that form 3D color point clouds mapped realistically.

Next, Hoeting used Polyworks® to mesh the data and export a .stl file. The Polyworks® software suite maximizes productivity, quality and profit when integrating 3D measurement devices into the industrial manufacturing process. The software interfaces directly with major brands and technologies of single- point and point cloud 3D models through plug-in extension models. Furthermore, Polyworks® supports a wide array of native point cloud and polygonal model file formats.

Lastly, Hoeting used Leica Cyclone to align the color texture with a center point at the base of the monument. This point cloud processing software provides the widest range of options for 3D laser scanning projects in engineering, surveying, construction and related applications.

Exact Metrology scanned around the monument and several buildings such as: Novel Coworking Circle Tower, IPL, Guaranty Building, Salesforce Tower (Chase Tower portion).

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 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.”
