Project Description: 3D Scan Modeling and Simulation
Team RDP will design and create a process that simulates a marine asset so that maintenance, rebuild, and overhaul (MRO) projects for the asset can be planned and implemented efficiently. The process will involve 3D scanning, CAD modeling, simulation, and 3D PDF creation. The outcome of this project will be used as a model by EOS to demonstrate the MRO processes to their military, bulk cargo transport, and shipyard clients.
||SCANNING HISTORY IN 3-D -- Engineers with a Lake Superior State University project scan the engine room of the 95-year-old retired Great Lakes ore carrier Valley Camp on Oct. 6. The effort will produce a high fidelity, three-dimensional digital rendering of the historic freighter, now a museum ship in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. LSSU senior engineering students are creating the model for an industrial client who wants to prototype a way of "virtualizing" the maintenance, repair, and overhaul of oversized industrial machinery. Technicians used a state-of-the-art scanner from Leica, shown here on a yellow tripod, to take in 360-degree views of the ship's mechanical areas, from stem to stern.
