Use of 3D LASER SCANNERS IN INVESTIGATIONS.

A 3D scanner is a device that analyses a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. The 3D Scanners are being used for  manufacturing of different products as well  as being used by different agencies like fire department, metrology department, etc. These are basically used for constructions and productions because of their precision measurement Read more about Use of 3D LASER SCANNERS IN INVESTIGATIONS.[…]

Law enforcement agencies and 3D Scanners.

​3D scanning can now help solve crimes. Police departments are now using 3D scanning software to create three-dimensional images of crime scenes and evidence. A 3D printer scanner can create casts of footprints and fingerprints, 3D models of car crashes and industrial accidents, and help with facial reconstruction and identification that can help ID victims. Some departments are even using images created by these scanners in court to convict criminals. Currently, investigating officers must use Read more about Law enforcement agencies and 3D Scanners.[…]
