In the afternoon workshops of our 3D User Meeting, participants go into detail choosing from a range of themes around architecture, mobile mapping, factory design and software. Stay tuned for more in-depth content later in the day.
In the coming 2 days we will provide you with the latest from the world of 3D documentation and laser scanning technology.
The conferece started this morning with the industry and FARO news by Managing Director Ralf Drews. Then we kicked-off with keynote Bernd Becker, Chief Technology Strategist about the latest 3D Documentation technology news.
The 4th edition of the annual 3D Documentation User Meeting 2014 will take place 3-4 April at the beautiful Andechs Monastery in Germany.
It is the ideal event for professionals, who are interested in the application of 3D Documentation to improve productivity and save costs, in the following areas:
– Structural engineering
– Cultural Heritage
– Forestry and agriculture
– Mining and tunnel construction
– Processes and Manufacturing Industries
– Quality control
– Crime scenes, accident and danger zones documentation
3D Documentation is suitable for a wide range of applications: for quick and reliable recording of existing structures or damaged buildings, for surveying and archiving monuments, at archaeological excavations, in plant construction and in forensic reconstruction and much more.
Following the successful concept of the previous years, the 3D Documentation User Meeting 2014 for laser scanning and 3D Documentation will have a strong focus on:
NETWORKING – During the event there will be plenty of opportunities for the participants to establish networks, e.g. with special activities during the breaks.
LEARNING SESSIONS – Participants can expect to also find comprehensive presentations on the latest hardware and software solutions from FARO and its development partners.
POWER SPEECHES – Keynotes by renowned professionals and power speeches by industry experts deliver a real insight into the changing world of 3D documentation using the latest technologies.
WORKSHOPS – The meeting offers a strong focus on hands-on workshops to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information between users and interested parties of the various systems and technologies.
3D EXHIBITION – Get to meet FARO’s 3rd party partners, who will showcase their latest 3D Documentation products on a specific exhibition area.
Take the chance to get new impressions and make new contacts. Please register here.
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.
“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.
Have a look at the first video of Day 1 featuring participants, exhibitors, and key note speeches.
We have arrived in Strasbourg!
The coming 2 days we will provide you with the latest from the world of 3D documentation and laser scanning technology. Tune in on the FARO blog or follow the event on twitter (#3DUserMeeting) or on Facebook.
After an introduction by Managing Director Ralf Drews with news about FARO we kick-off with keynote Kevin McAlea, Senior Vice-President at 3D Systems. Bernd Becker, Chief Technology Strategist will present FARO’s 3D Documentation Strategy.
Then, 4 powerspeeches featuring industry experts on:
• Webshare at Volvo
• Points in the Cloud
• Mecca – Scanning the Holy Mosque
• Airborne FARO Scanning – From Vision to Reality.
In the afternoon workshops, participants go into detail choosing from a range of themes around architecture, mobile mapping, software and scan data processing. Stay tuned for more details, videos and photos later in the day!
