Artec Ambassador Central Scanning took part in a remarkable project to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. Bringing together volunteers dressed in authentic World War II allied uniforms, the 3D scanning specialists at Central Scanning digitally captured them in various poses in minutes using Artec Leo, a professional handheld 3D scanner for creating incredibly lifelike 3D models of objects of all kinds. The scans were then used to make plaster molds, from which award-winning garden designer John Everiss created his intricate metal sculptures from hundreds of precisely-welded washers. The end result is a Normandy clifftop installation of ghost-like figures that appear to be dissolving into thin air.
