3D Google smartphones to help NASA robots navigate in space

NASA plans to send Google smartphones with state of the art 3D sensing technology into orbit to use them as eyes and brains for its newest sci-fi inspired machinery. The gadgets will be installed into hovering robots and boost the […]


3-D printed metals may transform Army logistics

3-D printed metals may transform Army logistics

A Soldier at a forward operating base needs the proper form to recommend an award for a fellow Soldier. He goes online, opens a form, fills in the blanks and hits “PRINT.” Easy. Another Soldier at a forward operating base […]


3D Printing Takes Off In the Aerospace Industry

3D Printing Takes Off In the Aerospace Industry

Components designed by computer and produced by a 3-D printer are becoming more commonplace. Leading the field is the aviation industry because it’s easy to make lightweight parts that are very durable. Imagine an airplane with a huge window where […]

New 3-D scanner makes impact at Eglin

When the 46th Test Wing’s Air Force SEEK EAGLE Office purchased a 3-D laser scanner system six months ago, they had no idea how much of an impact this system would make. “This is state of the art,” said Mark […]


New imaging system produces 3D models of monuments using unmanned aircraft

New imaging system produces 3D models of monuments using unmanned aircraft

University of Granada researchers have developed a 3D imaging system that scans 3D models of historical buildings using data obtained from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-an aircraft without a human pilot onboard. This is the first 3D imaging system to […]
