Scanning Sandcastles!

Scanning SandcastlesEarlier this month, the Epic Scan team packed up our scanners and ventured down to the beautiful Ocean Beach in San Francisco, California. We enjoyed a day of creativity, 3D laser scanning and some epic sandcastle building (with only a touch of rain)!

Every year, Leap Arts in Education hosts their Sandcastle Classic, where children, architects and the community come together to build the most intricate sandcastles imaginable.

3D Scanning SandcastlesThanks to Leap and our Business Development Manager Chet Roan, we were able to attend the 34th annual sandcastle event and 3D-scan the winning sandcastle. Participants gravitated toward the scanner, which initiated engaging conversations about 3D laser scanning and documentation—and we got to experience the sandcastles up close!

After a day on the beach, we packed up the scanners and headed back to the office to process the data. Seeing the sandcastles in person was amazing, but it was even more incredible experiencing them through point cloud data. The scanner captured every detail of the sandcastles, just like it does when scanning a building or renovation project.
