For OR3D GEO, our sub-brand for everything geospatial, we launched our new Aerial Mapping service with the acquisition of the Ultra 3 LiDAR scanner from YellowScan. We also acquired a smart new OR3D GEO van equipped with everything we need for site visits.

In the first week of January, OR3D CT launched Scan Quest, a monthly scan featuring various items to showcase our EasyTom 230 from RX Solutions and CT services.

After almost twelve months of work, OR3D launched their first online training course for Geomagic For Solidworks available for current OR3D clients and anyone who wants to complete the course.

Let’s look at all this in more detail.

OR3D GEO picked up their shiny new van for our geospatial team. From scanning bridges, confined space inspections, heritage projects, mobile mapping, crack detection, and more, the new van is well equipped to make our Geospatial projects run smoothly.

Introducing Scan Quest from OR3D CT

In our CT Centre, OR3D CT has been busy developing our new Scan Quest brand to bring followers captivating scans to highlight the capabilities and CT services using our RX Solutions EasyTom 230.

We started with a CT scan of a filament light bulb. Using Industrial CT data to understand the internal mechanisms we looked at the bulb’s different components.

To celebrate Burns Day, OR3D CT scanned a bottle of whiskey called Pure Scot from Bladnoch Distillery. This Scan Quest focussed on wall thickness analysis and how it can be used to visualise the varying thickness of the glass across the whole bottle at one time.
