Check out this YouTube video filmed during a recent press conference in Detroit:
Organized by SME, a manufacturers’ association, the press conference aimed at introducing two important upcoming events : Rapid, and The Big M. Both taking place at the Cobo center in Motown between June 9 and 12, these events sound very promising for anyone interested in cutting-edge technology.
For the occasion, an interesting stunt was performed by our Michigan-based reseller, CamLogic: the Spirit of Detroit, the iconic statue representing the city, was scanned live during the conference! The goal was to obtain a model of the statue, then use it to 3D print miniature versions.
Showcasing the possibilities of both 3D scanning and 3D printing for the manufacturing industry, some of these statuettes made out of different materials (nylon, ABS plastic, metal) will be presented at Rapid and The Big M.
The statue was scanned using our HandySCAN 700. We can’t wait to receive our very own version of the 3D printed Spirit of Detroit!
