“The Alsatian Village” @ Le Cour Honau and Outdoor Ralley

User Meeting participants experienced an evening at a traditional French market place with various delicacies and French music. But before that they had a task to finalise…The Expedition to the South Pole!

Have a look.


Innovators in automotive, spatial technology, and aviation

“We think it’s possible to live in a point cloud”, Göran Bergqvist from Volvo commented. The morning programme of the 3D Documentation User Meeting highlighted technology innovations in the 3D documentation field.

Kevin McAlea @3D Systems explained how to accelerate content creation. Offering solutions such as: Voxel CAD, Haptics, Model scan Print workflow tools, and verification products. To not disturb the physical plant Volvo created a virtual manufacturing plant for simulation purposes.

Dr. Peter Dorninger (4D-IT GmbH) and Dominik Krawczyk (von-oben e.U.) closed the morning session, introducing the flying Focus3D! See the photos below.
