  1. Everyone, it seems that some of you are having problems with the virtusurv file and it not serializing. I will be reuploading it in the next couple of days. The link should automatically direct everyone to the correct files. However, just let me know if I need to recreate a new link and I will happily do so. I would love to know what people are doing with the scan files! Personally, I hope to benefit from all this by seeing a better selection of aftermarket and replacement parts at more attractive prices...especially coming from the 3D printed markets. Thanks all!
  2. If you need a copy of the scan, send me a message with what you need and your email. You will need dropbox

  3. Got it uploaded! PM me your email and I'll send you a link!
  4. Hey, if this becomes a big thing, what are my chances of having a long nose R-200 LSD shipped to me? Eh? Eh? LOL
  5. BTW, still uploading. I can't use my employer's upload bandwidth so I'm using my home's. Last I saw it said 200 days, I doubt it'll take that long. If you want to paypal me the money for an SD card and postage, you can. Or, you can send me a shipping envelope and SD card and I'll mail it back. PM me if you want to do either.
  6. Wow thank you! And thanks for the complement! I will make this available to all tonight!
  7. Good news: I don't feel ethically right selling the point cloud because the quality is not as high as I would expect, had I purchased one. Therefore, I'm going to make it available for download for free. However, you will need to be able to import .rcp files. There is also a .pvp file you can use Virtusurv to read. This is invaluable because it allows you to precisely dimension parts using photos among other things. There is a Scene2Go .exe file included so you won't need to download software for that. Just find the .exe file. I will post directions. In the future, I would like to use a creaform hand-held scanner to get extremely detailed scans. I'm using this scan to create space frame pipe spool drawings (isometrics) for fabrication. I'm also going to create spool drawings for my down pipe and other stuff. I'll eventually buy another shell since the metal in my current 280 is in too great of shape (with exception of frame rails). I don't have the means to fabricate stuff myself, so I have to create drawings and send them off. Give me until the end of the week and I'll post links.
  8. Soo...it's rough. Scanners do not like gloss or glass. However, the virtusurv file is perfect. Resolution? Oh, I really have no clue as I only know how to work with the finished product and primarily use it for refinery design. It takes a lot of sectioning and clipping to drill down on specific parts, however, it's all there. I need to take more measurements because my initial measurements between shock towers seems too short.
  9. 52 gb file. I'll post some screen captures of the scan for quality. I'm running home now to grab an SD card.
  10. As you can see about my car personally, I need to adjust my mounts.
  11. Coworker is finishing up the virtusurv files right now. I think he may just need to finish registering the scans. Could all be ready as early as tomorrow, late as this friday. I also need to arrange and setup a password protected FTP. Guy scanned the dash the best he could, attached a photo of the condition of the dash as it was scanned. Overall we got in at least 40-45 scans; 12 minutes each scan, 5 hours of scanning, 2 scanners, no breaks
  12. Scanning went well this morning. With two FARO scanners going, it took roughly 5 hours to scan the inside, out, top, etc.. We were able to get a lot of the underside! We were also able to get scans from the top, looking down into the engine bay!
  13. This is what I'm scanning tomorrow. I'm not disassembling the dash, therefore, that will need to be hand-measured at some point. I'm scanning a few other things in addition. Do yall think I should mount a fender on one side so that it's not warped by sitting or hanging somewhere?
  14. Tomorrow I'm having my 280z laser scanned. I'll be creating a cad model based upon the scan. I have to pay for the laser scan and I'll have time vested into the CAD portion, so I'll most likely charge for any files. If your hardware/software can handle point clouds, I can setup an FTP for you to download the .rcp and .pvp files. That's Autodesk ReCap and Virtusurv.
  15. It will be in Autodesk ReCap .rcp file format and VirtuSurv .pvp file format. For drawing files, I use .dwg exclusively at work and mostly at home. Therefore, I will have a steep learning curve modeling in any other format.
