Overall Data Acquisition 01
From LiDAR scanning to panoramic High Dynamic Range Imagery, High Impact utilizes the latest in tools and techniques to acquire the most physically accurate representations when detail and accuracy are paramount. Our team of Forensic Certified Technicians have a diverse background in the vast technical areas of 3D Animation while also being experienced animators. Our experience and hands on approach to collecting data allows us to have a unique perspective when selecting the right tools for the job. For both redundancy and quality we scan each subject using a variety of methods and tools.
LiDAR Scanning 02
LiDAR or Light Distance and Ranging, relies on two sets of measurements to generate a cloud of point locations for features around the known location of the scanner. High Impact uses the Faro Focus 3D for long to mid range applications, indoor or outdoor, capturing a variety of materials and objects. By utilizing this small, fast and lightweight scanner we can scan in house or on site depending on the needs of the client.
Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. The output of photogrammetry is typically a map, drawing, measurement, or a 3D model of some real-world object or scene. At High Impact we utilize the benefits of high detail, high resolution point cloud geometry and textures from photogrammetry to help contribute to our other scanning methods. Whether it’s a large object or small, fine details down to potentially millimeters can be captured using this method.
Hand Scanning 04
At High Impact we utilize the Artec Eva 3D handheld scanner to capture medium sized objects with textures both quickly and accurately. It’s portability and compact size make it easy for traveling, setting up and scanning hard to reach places.
Desktop 3D Scanning 05
Reconstructing small, detailed pieces of hardware can be a challenging task in 3D. At High Impact, our Next Engine desktop 3D scanner can capture minute details that aid in its digital reconstruction for use in a number of applications including product liability, medical and forensic animations for litigation.
Technical Photography & Imaging 06
Coupled with our high end 3D scanning, High Impact also provides technical photography and imaging as a part of our data acquisition services. This includes, panoramic High Dynamic Range Imagery for accurate light representations, photography for virtual walk throughs, and other imaging to capture surface detail, lighting and other data for recreating accurate representations of virtual environments.
