3D scanning and processing
Pivot contracted in Dimensions 10 to carry out the final scan of the winner. Their scanner is capable of scanning in a matter of seconds, this is very desirable for the subject as other methods can take up to 1 hour. We then worked with dimensions 10 to smooth out and work the 3D file so it could be manufactured, removing all undercuts and making a vertical split plane. Pivot then split the 3d model up and constructed a 3D exoskeleton from the 3D scan, this is used as a clamping surface for the mold halves and to locate the tools.
