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.”

Exact Metrology Uses CT Scanning to Validate E-Lock Wiring Bobbin Postion

Customer needed post-assembly validation of fine wire configuration 

Scans of wire bobbin, showing precise path taken by 0.008” diameter wires inside; scan completed after final assembly of the unit, an inspection process not possible without CT scanning capability

Scans of wire bobbin, showing precise path taken by 0.008” diameter wires inside; scan completed after final assembly of the unit, an inspection process not possible without CT scanning capability

Exact Metrology, working at the company’s Brookfield, Wisconsin location, has successfully used its ProCon industrial CT scanning technology to validate the position of a wire configuration in the bobbin of an electronic lock assembly for one of its customers.

As techician Sean Plastine explains, “A customer came to us to verify the position of a 0.008” diameter wire inside its electronic lock assembly. The position of the wire could not previously be verified while the components of the lock were being assembled. Inspection of the wire bobbin after assembly was also impossible.”

By using its CT scanning technology on the completed lock assembly, Exact technicians were able to determine the wire’s precise position without the need for disassembly or other compromise on the finished article. Any deviation of the wire’s nominal position could be noted, allowing for subsequent changes in the assembly protocol, as needed.

The CT scan clearly shows the path that the wire pair follows inside the lock assembly.

Exact Metrology Holds Tech Expo with 3Dvision Technologies on 3D Scanning & 3D Printing

Product demonstrations and technical presentations from principals impress large crowd at dual open house

On March 17, 2016, Exact Metrology held a tech event in Cincinnati, Ohio with partner company, 3DVision Technologies at both of their offices. Held on St. Patrick’s Day, the event was cleverly titled “Lunch, Learn & Luck,” and had a “March Madness” theme with basketball games playing on multiple widescreen televisions. The event was attended by over 100 people from local area industries, including automotive, aerospace and consumer goods.

Co-Hosted by Steve Young, Exact Metrology co-founder and President, and Todd Majeski, President of 3DVision Technologies, the day included presentations and product demonstrations of the newest products transforming the manufacturing industry in 3D printing and 3D scanning. The informative event provided insight and hands-on experience, while displaying the newest technology that is reshaping the traditional manufacturing process.

The day began at 3D Vision Technologies office, (a provider of engineering solutions & 3D printing for manufacturing companies), with a presentation by Todd Majeski. Majeski discussed the company’s long-term partnership with Exact Metrology, and how both companies work together to improve processes, increase quality, and get their customer’s products to market faster through 3D scanning and reverse engineering. After several presentations and a question-and-answer session, attendees were welcomed into a showcase of 3D printer demonstrations and product displays of printed samples from miniature to lifesize versions, including a skateboard, helmet, and an automotive front grill.

The second part of the tech event was held at Exact Metrology’s office, conveniently located just a short walk away. Participants walked together and, after a St. Patrick’s Day themed lunch, began the afternoon session with a presentation by Steve Young. Young discussed the newest technology in CT (Computed Tomography) scanning systems, which allows users to not only scan the outside of a part, but to actually see inside of it without taking it apart, or damaging the item. Until recently, this technology was used primarily in the medical field but is creating much excitement within a variety of industrial markets now, as it enables manufacturers to check for defects, internal contact points after assembly, porosity and dimensional accuracy, comparing actual scans to point cloud data, CAD files etc. According to Young, this type of 3D scanning has been a “huge success” for his company, which he co-founded with Dean Solberg, who runs the company’s facility in the Milwaukee area.

Products displayed at the event included the P40 Leica Scanner, a long-range scanner, which, according to presenter Jacob Wallace, Processing Engineer at Exact, can be set up and ready to scan in 30 seconds. The scanner has a 150-meter range and will show everything in the surrounding area. Wallace recently scanned an entire office to make an accurate 3D model, complete with windows, doors, ceiling and wall thickness. Other uses of these long-range scanners include collecting topography of roadways (without stopping traffic) and large buildings of 500,000 square ft. or more, to collect information inside and outside of the building, all within a reasonable timeframe.

Inside a Playstation control, possible with the GE vtomex CT ScannerJosh Schradin, QA Manager, demonstrated the GE Vtomex M CT Scanner with a full rendering of a videogame controller he had previously scanned. Attendees were able to see internal components, including the smallest features on the circuit board. He explained how the scan could also be used to find defects or to process for reverse engineering.

Other products displayed and discussed at the expo were the Romer Absolute 77, an Articulated Arm with a Laser Line Scanner, the Atos Triple Scan, the Artec EVA Handheld Portable Scanner and the NDI ScanTrak Large Volume Laser Scanner.

Exact Metrology ended the afternoon with a St. Patrick’s Day raffle, with two lucky attendees winning a 48” high-def television and a MakerBot 3D printer.

Exact Metrology offers a complete line of portable scanning and measurement technologies as well as contract measurement for 3D laser scanning services, reverse engineering services, non-contact inspection, metrology services, 3D digitizing and training.
