Digital Modeling: Making Functional 3D Computer Models
Many of our digital models are intended to be accurate representations of the object that was scanned. This is referred to as an "as built" model. Pricing is usually related to the resolution and accuracy requirements of the model and the scale of the object being scanned. A 1/8 inch resolution as-built model of` a building is fairly high resolution, but a 1/8 inch resolution model of a dime is incredibly low (unusable) resolution.
Often we are provided with an object that his hand-sculpted, worn, or flawed in some fashion and we are asked to create a model that represents the design intent of the object. Design intent relies on engineering and geometric concepts and principles such as perpendicularity, parallelism, roundness, flatness, etc. In art projects we are often asked to smooth sculpted surfaces, or make things symmetrical. All of these things are possible within the digital realm.
As part of the creative process many of our clients employ the ability to make digital modification that affect or enhance the form they are trying to create. In addition to standard processes like scaling, bending, smoothing, mirroring, or Boolean operations (cutting, joining), we have the ability to digitally sculpt in 3D with tremendous power and artistic interpretation.
Textures can be applied to surfaces, fine details can be sculpted, 3D objects can be pulled twisted and shaped in virtual space like clay.
