This new technique will allow you to perform a 3D scan under water

3D scan

Many are the researchers around the world who continue to work on new techniques and possibilities related to 3D technologies. In this case I want to present you the latest novelty related to this field, such as the possibility of carrying out underwater 3D scanning.

As we were talking about yesterday, not only can 3D printing be a great solution for many of today's companies, but it has also been demonstrated how more and more are using different professional 3D scanning techniques to achieve reverse engineering of different products thanks to the great precision that it can offer today.

A group of scientists from different universities work on a new underwater 3D scanning technique

The aim of this new underwater 3D scanning technique is to work with the principle of Archimedean water displacement so that all kinds of hidden internal structures can be detected. Tell you that to develop this new methodology, the collaboration of several of the best researchers in this field from the University of British Columbia in Canada, Shadong University of China, Ben Gurion University of Israel and the University of Tel Aviv has been required.

The basic operation of this new technique comprises the use of a inversion machine that is responsible for introducing the object into the water. This immersion takes place along the axis and so the volume of water displaced during the process can be measured. To get an image of the object, it must be immersed in different axes.

The negative part of this process is found in the air inclusions, which can present you within the immersion process and which can offer data with some distortion although, as has already been communicated, this is the point where scientists are already working.
