P40 RENTAL, P30 RENTAL – P20 RENTALS

P40 elevated.jpgADSK Solutions has elevated their rental pool. We have P40, P30, P20, C10, 7000 and other scanners available upon request. We aim to always have equipment available for rentals; if we don’t we will help you find what you are looking for.   RESERVE – CAPTURE – RETURN. Targets, target poles, elevated and inverted tri-pods available, and other scanning supplies are also available along with your scanner rentals. ADSK even offers UAV rentals upon request.

ADSK Solutions’s extremely tall, inverted, and easy to use tri-pod made capturing what was at first thought to be impossible, possible. This scan provided the data for the top of an extended construction crane. A simple turn of a power drill initiates the tripod to make it’s climb quickly with ease. No step ladders required. The same tripod was inverted to go where no man really wants to go, inside of a sewer manhole. The secure fasteners kept the scanner safe, and it eliminated those scary safety risks that we all encounter when we need to capture data in out of the ordinary places.

Remote Lite app connects directly with Leica P-series scanners

Once in place, the scanner was controlled via an iPhone (an iPad is also capable of running a Leica Scanner). All of the standard commands are still available when utilizing handheld devices.

We have to give a shout out to the extreme capabilities of Leica’s P40. It was made for extreme conditions, longer ranges, and the terrible weather no one wants to scan in, rain. The P40 and our inverted tripod will give your firm the advantage to get these “out of the ordinary” scans and set you apart from your competition. Add in the invaluable remote control capabilities using an iPhone or iPad and the options are limitless. These scanning solutions and the training to get you ready to take on that next “out of the ordinary scan” are always available at ADSKsolutions.com.

Autodesk REAL Conference

As a technology professional I understand how hard it is to keep up with new technology. We have project deadlines, family, friends, and of course personal obligations. It is a full time commitment to be a preferred technology partner. I hope you enjoy the new technology as much as I did at the conference. We offer sales and solutions to all new technology listed below. IMG_3054 Autodesk ReCAP AUTO-REGISTRATION I cannot admit or deny that Auto registration is going to be released. The video below speaks for itself. If you have kept up with my video and post with ReCAP in the past you would know we discussed the iPAD tablet option that was  going to be released with a scanner to perform autoregistration. In this video Autodesk is loading scans directly into ReCAP to perform autoregistration. Contact your Autodesk reseller for more information about this release. ADSK Solutions will be the first to release proof of concept data and release dates like always.

Leica BACKPACK Scanner Another insight at the real conference was the Leica backpack 3D scanner. I don’t have all of the details yet. Ok, not sure if I can share all of the details.

3D Laser Scanning on TV – TIME SCANNERS

I am very excited to announce that “Time Scanners” (http://www.pbs.org/program/time-scanners/) – a new TV series featuring Leica scanners and software being used to provide remarkable, new insights into iconic world heritage sites – will be premiering in the USA tonight (PBS @8:00pm Eastern; 7:00 pm Central; 8:00pm Pacific).

“Time Scanners” is, to date, the biggest & best exposure for laser scanning by far to the general public. Lauded as “amazing technology”, the show pairs Leica scanners and software with a renowned structural engineer (Steve Burrows, WSP) to provide viewers with a virtual journey back in time that unlocks some of the world’s oldest engineering mysteries.

The TV series began airing internationally in February and for many months all six episodes (Petra, Pyramids, St. Paul’s Cathedral (London), Coliseum, Machu Pichu, and Jerusalem) had found their way onto YouTube. However, YouTube versions are apparently no longer available, as they were apparently not formally unauthorized. So, if you want to see these shows, you can no longer simply look them up on YouTube. PBS is currently promoting a three-part series (Pyramids, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and Petra), and may possibly opt to air the other three sites in the future.

Steve Burrows and Malcolm Williamson of Univ of Arkansas Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) gave a thrilling, standing-room-only presentation on Time Scanners at HxGN LIVE (picture below is Steve Burrows and myself after his presentation). Almost all of these sites had been scanned in the past and all had been studied by learned specialists for many, many years. So, what was the key to unlocking amazing, new secrets for this TV series? The key was putting rich, accurate, 3D scan data in front of the right person – in this case, Steve Burrows – who viewed the data with the eyes and experience of a world-class structural and building engineer. Another key was manipulating it (done by CAST staff) and viewing it in just the right way for him. The importance of those general ideas – providing the right deliverable to the right person – carry well beyond this TV series.
timescanners
If you’re into scanning and want your friends & family to appreciate the technology you use, have them watch this if they can. Also, anyone into construction or architecture will love these shows, so pass the word.

For additional information about the teams behind this series and each site, see this link for Atlantic Productions (UK), which produced the TV series: http://www.timescanners.com/us/

Enjoy!
