I had a bit of time this week to laser scan some models. I'm quite happy with the results as it helped a lot with the nose and engine cover areas. I used the laser scanned model as a 3D template for making my own much lower polygon count mesh.
The grey is the Laser scan and the pink is my model.

Hey that's cool, it would be useful for me as I'm not good at judging proportions.
What are you using to scan and create a mesh from the clouds ?

Faro Platinum arm with a Faro laser scanner attached, Geomagic Qualify to create the point cloud and save as a polygon mesh.

An update of what I have now. I still have to make the underbody and check the rear flip-ups.

Wow Shocked

That's brilliant! I imagine it reduces the modelling time a fair bit?

It gives you a good platform to start making your own 3d model, its like having a 3d blueprint.

It helps because you don't have to wonder about this little part or that rounded edge, it's the best reference you can get. You gain the time you spend trying to find reference pictures, or refining the part.
But it can't make miracles, it doesn't turn a rookie into an expert, unfortunately :doh: And I don't think the device is cheap either, in case you're wondering :D

That looks like a late 80's IndyCar isn't it ?

That is fantastic David. Very Happy  Scanning really is the answer for balls-on accuracy and saving modeling time.

The laser scan will not make modelling easier it only helps with getting the shape of the car correct. The scanner that I used is owned by the place where I work and is not something that you could buy yourself (unless you are very rich). The model that I scanned was a March 88C AMT 1/25th scale kit which is probably a little bit too small a scale but I think that it has turned out ok. I also have the AMT Lola and Penske.

I gathered it would be expensive. Razz

Are you going to scan the other 2 models you have as well, or is this just a one off experiment?

Yep, I have scanned the other two models so it will be a three off experiment, time permitting.

Double mirrors in the previous image. :doh:
I will move this modelling work to the Factory now and leave this thread for discussion about laser scanning models.
Here is an interesting laser scanner although it can only scan 165mm x 165mm for 499 euros. http://www.rubitech.org/

Super work Smile And a super car which was never done :D

The real model just need to be good (sometimes, it isn't the case :p )

I always thought that with the laser scanner we'll obtained good results in even in the world of simulation race  :conduit: , this is the end result with a "3d blueprint" cheers , excellent work Dave, as always (Luigi 70  :top: )

Update.
All three of the plastic kit models were laser scanned and used as 3D blueprints. Below are the 3D car models.
Penske.

I'm not sure if there will be demo version but there are likely to be test versions for the physics. There is still a lot of work to do with the physics and making all of the skins.

I've done a little bit of work on the mod. All of the car models are complete and I've made a few more skins.
