The visual medium be it advertisements or hoardings have long captivated the minds of the customer and has been a proven marketing strategy for businesses all over the world.
People in general are wired to absorb visual information a lot more than any other forms of communication or interactivity. Photography is one of the most sought out visual mediums since time immemorial.
Over time, advancement in technology has opened up a whole new world of visualizations, which moved from 2D to 3D animations. It did not stop there. 3D animations created using computer generated graphics software have become the visual medium of choice to reach out to target customers and other potential businesses.
3D animations are now popular in interior and exterior designing, landscaping, medical field, architecture, media entertainment including forensics. The animation industry is a multi-million dollar industry today. 3D visualizations hence have been used synonymously with 3D rendering, graphics, and imaging.
There are specialists such as 3D artists who combine their artistic skills, imagination and solid technical skills to create mind-blowing visuals using CAD tools, Maya, Autodesk, and Cinemas 4D or other similar software.
Now, we have 3D Visualization printing where 3D scale models are printed by machines that use precise measurements fed through digital images. What’s more, these 3D printed models are used in litigation cases and crime scene investigations to recreate specific components, be it even a part of the human body.
These 3D tools were far more expensive in the past, but in recent times have become comparatively affordable. Laser scanners, photogrammetry, and light scanners are some of the tools used in 3D printing. With technological advancement, 3D printing has found a place in a wide number of industries.
3D printing also known as additive manufacturing is quite straightforward. Digital images are uploaded to the printer. The images could be any object of any size, be it a king size architectural model or miniature automobiles. The list of objects you can create using 3D printing technology is endless.
It could be a human part, a landscape, pizzas, architectural model, automobiles and the list goes on. The objects can be created using a variety of materials like ceramic, plastic, and metal.If you are wondering how 3D printed objects find a place in litigation cases, have you considered handing an unsure juror a life-like object pertaining to the case for scrutiny and understanding how the pieces fit? The visualization is already done and handed over to you.
All that the juror needs to understand is how the facts fit before a decision can be made. In the field of medicine where invasive surgery is required, it may not be possible to study or understand the intricate or underlying tissues clearly with a scan.
However with a 3D printed object, even the tiniest of objects can be printed to a high level of clarity, enabling clear cut insights and informed decision making. At the same time, 3D modeling printing is highly dependent on the accuracy of data fed to the system. Greater the need for precision, the costs of acquiring supporting technology can go up significantly.
