Scanning an original E-type


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

To prepare our prototype of the 1961 E-type we used a laser scanner to create a 3D computer-model of the real thing..



On this next image you can see the small dots that are stuck all over the body. This is because the paint-work is so reflective it can cause problems with the laser measurements so the system needs something to calibrate to. The alternative was to put a dulling polish over the body-work, but we didn't really want to do this, as is not our car!!! The blue lines are the laser picked up on the photograph
