Report about the 3D digitisation of a steam engine housing
3D digitisation of the housing half of a low pressure steam engine (Siemens AG / Muehlheim) with the terrestric laser scanner Surphaser model 100HSX-SR.
Figure 1: The top view shows the 7 scan positions. The positions 1-3 are from underneath to scan the internal surface.
Figure 2: Housing half with Surphaser underneath (at scan position 1 of 7).
10 contrast targets are distributed in the scan volume for the referenzing of the scans against each other. Figure 3 (animation) shows the outside scan images with the automatically extracted target positions.
The scans are automatically referenced in the post processing software.
