ScanLAB Projects has revealed this ‘millimetre perfect’ visualization made from 3D scans of last year’s summer exhibition at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London.
The research project by Bartlett students Matthew Shaw and William Trossell was explained: ‘Our current exhibition of drawings and animations records last year’s Bartlett School of Architecture Summer Show not through video or photography but solely through the 3D Scanning. 48 hours of colour 3D scanning produced 64 scans of the entire exhibition space using a Faro Photon 120 laser scanner.

‘The scans were then aligned to create a millimetre perfect 3D model of the entire exhibition space and all of the thousands of drawings, prototypes, models, sketches, films and installation within. A series of ‘standard’ architectural drawings are taken from this data set and exhibited on bespoke light boxes.
‘These drawings represent the closest record to an “as built” drawing set for the entire exhibition and an “as was” representation of the Bartlett’s year.
‘The exhibition and all research work was supported by Faro Laser Scanning, Pointools and CEGE at UCL. The exhibition was launched as part of the recent Fabricate Conference at the Bartlett which discussed the progressive integration of digital design with manufacturing processes.
‘The conference brought together pioneers in design and making within architecture, construction, engineering, manufacturing, materials technology and computation.
